It’s time that politicians and senior bureaucrats lived in the real world, and were paid what they actually deserve!
A politician or a public service bureaucrat is there for public SERVICE – not personal advantage, and it’s time to cut back on payments and perks to these parasites! We believe that politician’s salaries and entitlements should be cut by 50%.
Currently, a ‘normal’ MLA receives almost $150,000 a year – not counting any of the extra perks – and the Premier earns almost as much as the President of the United States ($380,000 a year)!
According to the latest figures available from the ABS, the median taxable income for a normal Australian wage earner is $48,684.00 – barely 1/4 of what a ‘normal’ politician earns! A member of parliament on $200,000+ per year earns more than 98% of the working population. This means that your average MLA earns more than just about anyone else in the workforce …… Do you think your local member is the most valuable member of your community?
With 1.5 million working Australian’s trying to live on the minimum wage of less than $34,000 a year, to pay politicians such outrageous amounts is obscene – and we will stop it! Politicians salaries should be capped at no more than 2.5 times the minimum wage.
OUR POLICY IS TO CUT POLITICIANS’ SALARIES BY 50%, AND TIE ANY FUTURE PAY RISES TO INCREASES IN THE MINIMUM WAGE.
Until political salaries ARE reduced significantly, if elected, I will donate 50% of my salary each week to a different charity or service organisation in our electorate.

We all want people to be safe, but the ridiculous restrictions on our normal lives and liberties are doing MORE harm to MORE people than the virus ever will! Surely a better solution is to protect the elderly and vulnerable …. and let the rest of us get back to work and our normal lives!
Here’s a quote from Jeanette Young, Qld’s chief medical officer about covid19: “Most cases would not be severe…. 80 per cent of them will get a very mild disease — they’ll possibly hardly even know they’ve got anything” [Source: ABC News]
We want to ‘stay positive’, but there comes a time when it’s necessary to call out tyranny and injustice for what it is. Let’s not ‘look on the bright side’ – when un-elected bureaucrats are taking away our hard-won freedoms. We cannot sit by and accept the oppressive, police state powers that have unreasonably been thrust upon us – when there is another solution.
Please – don’t just ‘think positive’ … think critically, and question what you’re being spoon-fed by ‘authorities’ and the corrupt mainstream media.
We were told back in January that 50,000 – 100,000 Australians would die, yet after six months there have been just 361 deaths. These unreasonable restrictions are not really about ‘saving lives’ – 8,500 children die every day from hunger: deaths that that could easily be saved with a fraction of the money currently being spent on this fake ‘pandemic’ if governments really cared about ‘saving lives’. No, this is about restricting our basic rights and freedoms and conditioning us to obey without question. Obey the government. Obey the doctor. Obey the bureaucrats. Obey the ‘authorities’ ….. Or else.
Will you accept even more government control, government restrictions on our freedoms, government regulations and government demands ….. or will you speak out; will you resist?
Join the Resistance.
We can care for the elderly and vulnerable without these crazy restrictions. Protect them, and let the rest of us have our lives back!
