Should a bank use an ex-politician to help compensate bank victims?

NAB "experiment" fails as bank's victims pull the pin on ex-Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett's role as a mediator. NAB CEO Andrew Thorburn thought it was a good idea at the time. Victims had their doubts but gave the process the benefit of the doubt. Before the Kennett determinations were made the nature of the negotiations had become clear. In a near unanimous decision the victims chose to revert back to dealing directly with NAB executives who have a much better understanding regarding the deep - inner workings of their bank. A great review of the situation from champion journalist Joyce Moullakis  - The Australian.

Now The World Knows About NAB

Bank chairman resigns, along with chief executive Andrew Thorburn, after heavy criticism in the royal commission report .. and The Guardians international readership has been informed. Great work from Paul Karp.

The Verdict Is In ..... The Banks RC must be made longer and stronger

Victims of misconduct say the royal commission has only just begun the work of exposing problems in the financial system. The Guardian's Martin Farrer and Gareth Hutchens look at why the Hayne Royal Commission just hasn't done the job required. They interview several advocates for reform including BRN's Dr B.

The  buck stops with  Matt Comyn

All the MPs interviewing Matt Comyn have done a magnificent job. BRN gives kudos to each and every one of them. This article from the AFR's James Eyers is a beaut - kudos to James too. Matt Comyn has work to do. Victims of bank crimes are now organised. We are not going away. The only measure we have is the way banks remediate aggrieved customers and how they act to prevent crimes and misconduct in the future. The environment has now changed. Banks, their directors and their CEOs need to recognise that and change the way they are doing  business. The people want an honest financial service system .... we are not here to be fleeced.

BRN Advisory Panel Member Michael Sanderson Makes The Case Loud & Clear

Angry victims of financial misconduct are calling for a bank-funded legal aid service as they struggle to match the legal power of the big banks. Michael Sanderson has campaigned with great tenacity and determination. He met with and contacted a huge number of politicians in Canberra to show them that effective legal aid was not only doable .... it is essential. Journalist Eryk Bagshaw recognised a good idea when he heard it. Many politicians have also heard the call. At the October meeting in Canberra the bank CEOs will also hear about that and other elements of justice heading their way.

ANZ, CBA & Rabobank victims Brett, Tanya and Cate aren't giving up. Their message goes around the world.

BBC reporter Phil Mercer helps get the message out. Aussies are up in arms about bank crimes and corruption. The BRN Rally helped bring attention to horror stories of bank abuse like the ANZ and its treatment of farmer Brett Fallon. Aussies are calling for a Royal Commission and compensation to bank victims.

Turnbull Tries To Appease Pro Royal Commission LNP Members

A Banking Royal Commission must be a big worry for Turnbull and the bankers if they are appearing to look at yearly meetings and a tribunal as reasonable alternatives.

Crooked Bankers To Feel The Heat

The Bank Reform Now campaign building public attention and goodwill in the pre-launch phase. Once a critical mass is reached banks will be put under pressure.

Government allows white collar crooks to profit. Time to say - enough!

Bankers can deny it all they like. The facts clearly show that conflicted remuneration models will lead to bank clients being ripped off. Reform is called for. The banking and finance system just takes too much away from productive people. An honest banking system is really not as profitable as many people have become accustomed to.

Bank Reform Now. Launching Soon. NAB To Feel The Heat.

After years of preparation Dr Peter Brandson is about to launch the Bank Reform Now campaign. Triggered by his experience of NAB and its predatory lending the campaign aims to reform the way banks operate. Initially focusing on NAB the campaign will extend to the whole industry. Banks will no longer get away with fraud and deception. The government will not be able to resist the call for reform. The campaign aims to harness people power in a way seldom seen in Australian politics.
