Media Release – Stop Parliament from secretly legislating to steal deposits
Craig Isherwood from the Citizens Electoral Council joins us to talk about the Federal Government pushing through a law to steal your money from your accounts.
The Citizens Electoral Council has just discovered that legislation is being secretly prepared to give Australia’s banking regulator “bail-in” powers to confiscate the savings of the Australian people, just as in Cyprus.
The CEC is mobilizing to expose and stop this secret plan, and force the Parliament to instead fully protect deposits and essential banking services from an inevitable collapse by passing a Glass-Steagall separation of speculative investment banking from banks that hold deposits.

Australia’s 13 biggest mistakes
Deakin resumed office with Labor support. The December 1906 election brought little change, although Reid, campaigning under the ‘Anti-Socialist’ banner, slightly improved his numbers. When Fusion eventually came in 1909, protectionist ideas were very much in the ascendancy. Whether this would have been different if it had happened in 1905 is debatable. It seems more likely that by giving up on key parts of their agenda in 1904–05, the Free Traders condemned the ideals of free market liberalism to the wilderness for decades to come.
McKay Stripper Harvester, c. 1880’s
The imposition of wage levels by judicial fiat, in defiance of prevailing conditions of supply and demand in the labour market, has been a disaster for Australia since that time. The ultimate irony is that centralised wage determination has been most harmful to those it was actually intended to help—the poor and the unskilled—by pricing many of them out of the labour market and condemning them to unemployment. Together with protectionism, centralised wage-fixing was responsible for Australia’s going from being perhaps the richest nation at the turn of the twentieth century to one of the poorer in the developed world by the 1980s.
Tragically, the ghost of Higgins continues to haunt Australia today.
8The Labor Party Split
‘The Split’ kept the Liberals in power and kept Labor out of power during the 1950s and 1960s. Depending on one’s political sympathies, this was either a good thing or a bad thing. The electoral consequences for the Federal ALP and for some of its State divisions were so enormous that, not unreasonably, they have been the focus of attention.
But the long-term effects of the Split were disastrous for both sides of politics, and for Australian politics generally. The root cause of the Split was communism. For the Left of the ALP, communism was no greater a threat than capitalism, and for some it was actually a preferable alternative. For the Right, international communism in the form of Russia, and domestic communism expressed through the Communist Party of Australia’s control over key trade unions, posed a fundamental threat to the country. Doc Evatt, the Federal ALP leader at the time of the Split in 1955 appeared to have a greater sympathy for the first rather than the second interpretation of communism.
When many of the right-wing members of the ALP broke away to form first the Australian Labor Party (Non-Communist) and then the Democratic Labor Party, the Left gained an almost unchallenged ascendancy. And without the discipline that the opportunity of gaining office would have imposed, the ALP drove itself further and further to one end of the political spectrum. This shift made Labor unelectable and ensured that the Coalition was guaranteed government. And with its position assured, and without challenge from Labor, the Coalition became complacent and lazy.
The later Menzies, and then Holt were never forced to confront the need to renew their policies in the face of a viable alternative from Labor. When, therefore, Labor under Whitlam did make itself electable, the Coalition had no intellectual framework with which to respond to the ALP’s high-spending, high-taxing prescriptions. The result was that during the 1970s the Coalition’s policies were simply copies of the ALP’s.
