WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY

News

Vote 1 for the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY on both ballot papers this Saturday 18 May 2019.

Why?  Because your number 1 vote is a double value vote.

With the help of voters in the by-elections of Cottesloe, Darling Range and Perth, the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY exposed the false claims of every party and every politician in Canberra that said "they couldn't change the GST without approval of all states".  Even Scott Morrison claimed it was up to the states to agree when he was Treasurer, and the Labor party did nothing while they were in government too.

While Canberra politicians were making these false claims, WA's share of the GST fell to 32 cents in the dollar, WA's cost of living went through the roof, electricity prices increased by 100%, WaterCorp overcharged every business and every household by $1 billion to make a profit for the State Government, while other state governments balanced their budgets using our share of the GST.

WA now knows after pressure from the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY at the ballot box, we can have a 70 cent floor on the GST without agreement from the other states.

With the help of every Western Australian voter in this election, the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY will expose that other states receive a per capita share of the GST and so should WA to stop the rising cost of living in WA.

We will also expose:

  • The other states balance their budget using our GST, while WA households are forced to pay more for essential services
  • The transfer of Commonwealth jobs in Defence, BOM, public service and the ABC to the eastern states.
  • Fringe Benefits Tax is killing off our regional towns
  • WA is only state not to have a National Hub to provide a federal government service
  • Unsold WA produce is being ploughed back into the ground instead of receiving Federal funding to distribute food to remote communities
  • The lack of infrastructure has WA commuters pay the second highest public transport costs in Australia
  • The cost of airport security has caused airfares to be unaffordable in regional WA
  • There is no 000 emergency call centre in WA

and much more.

So please.... Do something different this election.  Use your double value vote to expose Canberra's discrimination against WA.  Vote 1 for the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY on the ballot paper and put your 2nd vote for the party you would like to see govern Australia in the best interests of WA.

Thank you for your support.

  "Western Australian farmers continue to have an oversupply of produce that is being ploughed back into the ground instead of being distributed to the remote and rural communities," says Peter Swift, WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY candidate for the seat of O'Connor.

Swift says,"Limited access to fresh food is an ongoing problem facing remote communities, especially traditional food sources like Kangaroo ." 

These areas continue to suffer due to cycles of the mining 'boom and bust' and an overall unavailability of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Traditional food is a primary source of nutrition for Aboriginal people and there are little, or no kangaroos left after mining activities.

Lack of access to their primary food source can have heavy long-term consequences for their community.

Peter says; “Being a farmer in the region, I have seen the impact that poor food supply management has had on our remote communities. The continued neglect is unfair! A proper process needs to be put into place.”

Autonomy over their food supply is an imperative part of preserving and respecting Aboriginal culture and community.

Alleviating the gap through education and thorough food supply management are the crucial next steps for improved development of Western Australia.

 “We need to introduce better initiatives like fruit, vegetable and meat delivery programs that are regularly sent to our communities. Our top priority should be to improve access to nutritional food supply.”

The WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY calls for changes to food supply access to remote communities in WA.

Andrew Mangano is a proud Western Australian and the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY candidate for Curtin. Through his experiences as a local community member, he deeply understands the concerns of his area and believes WA requires adequate representation in Australian parliament.  

Professionally, Andrew graduated from the University of Western Australia in 1985 and has been an Engineer ever since. Andrew’s political career began in October 2017 when he was elected as Councillor for the City of Nedlands. Being a Dalkeith resident since 1995, he has been an active part of the community; he is a foundation member and current president of the Friends of Point Resolution.

Andrew is standing for this election as he would like to advocate for GST fairness and the unfair reduction of Commonwealth Public Service jobs in WA as a result of centralisation to the Eastern states. He is passionate about efficient maintenance and improvement of local infrastructure.

Andrew feels the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY strongly aligns with his values for WA and the need for recognition in Federal parliament. Andrew believes that through his voice and the voice of the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY, he can make imperative change to the seat of Curtin.

 

Seat of Curtin

Curtin covers 98 sq km area an area west of Perth, bordered by the Indian Ocean in the west and the Swan River in the south. The suburbs include Churchlands, City Beach, Claremont, Cottesloe, Crawley, Daglish, Dalkeith, Doubleview, Floreat, Glendalough, Herdsman, Innaloo, Jolimont, Karrakatta, Karrinyup (part), Mount Claremont, Mosman Park, Osborne Park (part), Nedlands, Peppermint Grove, Scarborough (part), Shenton Park, Swanbourne, Subiaco, West Leederville, Wembley, Wembley Downs and Woodlands.

 

The Bureau of Meteorology, like many Commonwealth agencies, is pursuing an agenda to centralise its staff to the eastern states.

 

While this may appear more efficient, there is a strong likelihood the accuracy of forecasting will diminish, as local knowledge disappears.

 

In particular, staff in rural and remote areas who man weather stations will disappear, resulting in inaccurate forecasting.

 

The loss of 30-40 skilled jobs in Western Australia will also have some impact on our economy, both in Perth and across WA.

 

Most other agencies, including the ABC media, Defence, Centrelink, and the public service generally, have only a very small fraction of their staff employed in Western Australia.

The only party willing to do something about the loss of Commonwealth jobs in Western Australia is the WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY.

 

The Western Australia Party opposes the centralisation of BoM and all Commonwealth jobs to the eastern states.

 

The only satisfactory result for Western Australia is 11% per capita share of Commonwealth jobs in Western Australia!

Federal Attorney-General Christian Porter’s tabling of the Australian Law Reform Commission’s (ALRC) Final Report is no more than a cynical attempt to stave off a Royal Commission into the Family Law Industry. 

WESTERN AUSTRALIA PARTY candidate for the seat of Pearce, Michael Calautti says, “the 583-page review fails to mention the victims of Family law – other than a cursory mention about suicide”.

 “We simply should not accept the report!” says Calautti

 The Review team, stacked with a list of over three pages of Family Law and associated professionals, failed to see any relevance in the human train-wreck of casualties of the Australian Family Law system.

 The  human misery does not just extend to deaths; it is the enormous sadness caused by over 300,000 children who are totally cut off from a parent after separation.  It affects the children, siblings, mothers, fathers, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and other extended family and friends. 

The fact that the Review has shown such a callous disregard for human life affirms that in the main the Panel had no training in Psychology or Child Welfare and ought to be removed from any decision-making capacity.

Calautti says, “In 2016 the Family Court CEO Richard Foster advised the Senate that he had ‘no idea’ and the Court would probably never know the effects of the Court on children, despite the claim that it acts in the Best interests of Children.”

If the  Attorney and Shadow Attorney General Mark Dreyfus cared, the Government should commission research to determine whether the Industry produced outcomes consistent with community expectations. No such study was ever commissioned.

Every year about 48,000 families separate, most needing two homes to maintain the children’s relationships with their parents. But the Industry simply guarantees a lucrative revenue stream for itself, from parents trapped in the irresolvable arguments it creates. Though undoubtedly in the billions, the true amount extorted by the Family Court Industry from Aussie parents remains a carefully guarded secret.

 

Why do Porter and Dreyfus continue to defend and endorse a system that strips families of their assets to resolve the legal ambiguities they’ve written into law?  

 

A Royal Commission is urgently needed into the Family Court.
