Another Government exercise that the public should be aware of February 12, 2014 Media Release “Senior legislators in seven Trans-Pacific Trade Text countries have released a statement <http://www.tppmpsfortransparency.org/> calling for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement text to be released before it is signed by governments, ” Dr Patricia Ranald, Convener of the Australian Fair Trade and Investment Network, said. The statement involves senior politicians from Australia, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, the US, Chile and Peru have expressed concern about the lack of transparency in the TPPA negotiations. “The statement includes the motion from Senator Penny Wong, ALP Shadow Trade Minister, which was passed in the Senate last December calling for the release of text of the TPP and all other trade agreements before they are signed. The statement is also endorsed by Senator Peter Whish-Wilson,” said Dr Ranald. “The current Australian process is that Cabinet signs off on the text of the agreement before it is released for public and Parliamentary scrutiny. The subsequent Parliamentary committee review cannot change the text. Parliament can only vote on legislation to implement the agreement,” explained Dr. Ranald. “The Australian government has refused to comply with the Senate motion to release the text before it is signed. But thousands of Australians have signed petitions <http://www.choice.com.au/consumer-action/consumer-protection/consumer-rights/dont-trade-it-away.aspx> for release of the text and surveys <http://www.tai.org.au/content/survey-most-aussies-not-aware-tpp-implications> show a majority (87%) support this call,” said Dr Ranald. For statement and supporting documents see www.tppmpsfortransparency.org <http://www.tppmpsfortransparency.org> , Oxfam International and Article 19, an international NGO hosts the website that campaigns for freedom of expression and transparency.

“The age of entitlement is over,” declared federal Treasurer Joe Hockey - when a politician retire or resign or get kicked out most of them get pension for life and lots of other perks. Is this getting the chop too? I DON'T THINK SO!

warren from QLD replied to FREDA:

Politicians should be subjected to the same assets test as we are, if that was the case most would not be entitled to any pension.How can we enforce this? 

FREDA NGUYEN

FREDA from NSW replied to warren:

We need to change the constitution and the voting system in such a way that the people have a REAL say in what politicians do.

When a mother is tightening her belt, the first one who does without is herself, then she has to stop handing out to neighbors- the very last one is her children. Wake up Government. You politicians get way way too much, give away to other countrys way too much, then tell us tax payers, who, by the way pay your fat wages, that after working ourselves nearly to death- that we need to start going without- . We work till late 60s, worn out from our hard work, and you guys only have to do a few years, and look what you leave with- its a sin. This once fabulous country is changing so much, I am sorry I had children- I fear for their future. They will have to work till 70 or more, to get a few crumbs at the end. Mia from Brisbane
