2019 AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL ELECTION

Questioning my candidates

About

As someone who takes voting very seriously, I pay careful attention to how my vote and preferences are cast. To allow me to have a better understanding of the various candidates and parties running in state and federal elections, I send each a number of questions. This helps me learn more about individual candidates and parties (particularly those that are lesser known or more obscure) and their positions on issues that are important to me. A response - and the nature of that response - also provides an indication of their willingness to interact with constituents.

I live in Wyndham Vale (Victoria), which is in the federal district of Lalor, a traditional Labor safe seat.

Questions are sent via email to addresses obtained from the Australian Electoral Commission. Candidates who have not supplied an email address are not contacted, unless an email address for them can be easily found (such as on their party or individual website). In some instances, multiple candidates for the same party use a generic or catch-all email address; in such cases only one email is sent.

Responses are not edited, although may be formatted for readability and some information - such as personal information or footers - is excluded.

In the interests of transparency, I am a member of the Victorian Greens and will in all likelihood be directing my first preferences towards these candidates. I'm also firmly in the no pineapple on pizza camp.

A reminder that you can learn about preferential voting from Chicken Nation.

Dear Andy,
Thank you for taking the time to email me.
In reply to the questions, I can answer the following:

Road congestion is a great concern for the Werribee and surrounding areas.One of the United Australia Policies to decrease the congestion is to offer employers, and employees, is a 20% zoning tax off set, to encourage growth and jobs in our regional areas. Locally in regards to this issue, there are several theories that come to mind. A ferry system, but to build a pier from Point Cook (Not like the previous ferry at Werribee South). A bullet train system, as an example: starting from Winchelsea, travelling onto Geelong, Werribee, then onto Melbourne. Even a direct bus system. Individual bus services from Werribee, Wyndham Vale, Hoppers Crossing, Williams Landing and Laverton train stations. Each going directly to either Spencer street station or Flinders street station. If each one of these buses, were full of regular car commuters, we could ease congestion by about 40 cars each bus trip. Of course the deeper concern, is the increase of housing property development. As the Lalor electorate is witnessing, the houses are going up, but the infrastructure is lacking greatly. While the public transport system appears to be holding for now, without proper planning for the expanding electorate, it can worsen.

A horse size duck would appear to be an easier challenge, being a solitary target, but life experience has more familiarity with the 50 duck sized horses. :)

Being not an expert on the Assistance And Access Act (2018). But certainly aware that it must be used and not abused by all authorities that have access. Whilst it can be a great asset in attaining information that can be used in aid of stopping national threats, it could be used in harmful manner to individuals and groups. Whilst not repealing the act, one recommendation for offer, could it be only used by a specialised/selected group of individuals trained to only seek out what is required, to stop any infiltration of the system, and to face harsher sentences if found guilty of corruption and/or abuse.

Yes, pineapple can go on pizza. With all the different things we see on pizza now days, what could be wrong with pineapple? It still goes on a Hawaiian ham steak, shame when the glazed cherry is not there.

Whilst the NDIS is not among currently in the UAP core policies. It was mentioned in our candidates meeting that to supply medical attention and adequate health services to every Australian is paramount. I was impressed to hear this. On personal experience, working with the Red Cross, St.John Ambulance, Salvation Army. In addition, having family members with disability. Given the opportunity, I would see myself helping and improving the NDIS.

As I never have been a seasoned politician, just a person of the community. Who decided to quit grumbling about the "out of touch" politicians, the lowering of living standards and rises in the cost of living. I have a chance to stand and do something about it. I can genuinely say, you have my honesty.

I do hope I have answered your questions, at least to a satisfactory level. If I have fallen short of the mark, I do apologise for my lack of knowledge in that/those areas.

If there is anything else I could assist with, please do send an email. Although I'm starting to find how busy a candidate's role can become, I'll try my best to answer promptly.

Sincerely,
Jeff Robinson.

Hello Andy,

Thanks for your email and sorry for my delay in responding.

Kudos to you for being interested enough to be emailing candidates to ask the questions you want answered.

What's your position on roads and public transport? Specifically, road congestion in and around the Melbourne area, and public transport services?

I'm behind Premier Andrew's current investment in our roads and public transport. As someone who lives in the outer South East , I suffer regularly with the congestion on our roads.

Given the choice, would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or 50 duck-sized horses?

Hmmm...deep. Probably a horse-sized duck so I can have Peking Duck pancakes every day for a month!

What would be your stance on the repeal of, or heavy changes to, the Assistance And Access Act (2018)?

I have to admit to not being familiar with this Act, but if any changes disadvantage the disabled, I'm not for it

Pineapple on pizza – yes or no?

Yes. I make a Super Supreme Ginormus that ALWAYS includes pineapple! (and anchovies!)

What's your policy on the NDIS?

I believe in its application and the goodwill behind it. My only fear is it will get buried under a mountain of red tape.

In short, why should I vote for you?

Because I and my party, the Australian Democrats, believe in a nation for all and discrimination for none. We have a vision for a better future than our present. We believe in policies that will take us all forward , not just a privileged few and a parliament that we can be proud of, not embarrassed by.

Thanks

Hello Voter

Our Secular Party Senate candidate, Harris Sultan has asked me to answer some questions, on behalf of the Secular Party that have been put to him. Three issues have been raised most often: climate change, Palestine and social inclusion. So here are some comments.

Climate Change

First, a disclosure: I am an economist. Hence I favour the orthodox economic solution: put a price on carbon. There was one, and it was working. Forget Tony Abbott's scare campaign. It is still the best option. Labor will most likely include some kind of carbon price in their revamped National Energy Guarantee. Not the best solution but better than nothing.

But what about the emissions generated by our coal exports? These more than double our domestic emissions. They would not be covered by a domestic carbon price. We need to take responsibility. The Secular Party proposes a tax, of say $5, on each tonne of coal exported. This could be paid into the UN's Green Climate Fund. What we don't need now is to build the world's biggest coal mine: Adani.

Palestine

The Secular Party does not support a Christian state, an Islamic state or a Judaic state. Or any other state where one religious or ethic group dominates. So, the best solution for Israel/Palestine is a single secular state in which everyone has equal rights, and no religion dominates. People can have their religion, but the state should not support or impose any religion. That is secularism. It may seem a long way off at the moment, but in the long run, it is the only way.

Social inclusion

The best way to increase social harmony is to work the reduce the artificial divisions created by religions. Children should not be indoctrinated in schools with harmful, divisive and unjustified religious ideologies.

There are many social welfare measures that are justified. These are OK provided that cost of them is covered by sufficient government revenue. If both government expenditure and revenue increase, this may be good for our economy at the moment, which is looking a bit shaky.

We have many policies described on our web site. Please see:
https://www.secular.org.au/policies/education/
Sorry, but we can't really answer questions from each individual voter.

Secular regards

John Perkins

Non-candidate response:

Hi Andy
Definitely an interesting mix of questions. I’ll do my best to answer them.
1. Congestion: we believe the answer lies not in better roads or rail (which is worth pursuing)but in decentralising and increasing the population & industry in regional centres.
2. 50 duck sized horses are easier to distribute where required.
3. Simply put - anything that requires that many words to explain how they are protecting our freedoms needs serious RE-evaluation.
4. My Italian friends wouldn’t speak to me for a month after I ordered an Hawaiian - but the I’m used to being a pariah - I’m a St Kilda supporter. Go saints !!!!!
5. Well, since the DLP is the party that actually Introduced the idea of an NDIS in the senate in 1968 (yep, 51 years ago) we definitely support it. (Shame the Libs & ALP of 1968 didn’t).
We do, however, have doubts bout the funding model.
6. Your choice. We are (according to the Supreme Court of Victoria) the original Labour Party that has existed since pre-federation. We are not socialist but distributist and value families & workers above unions & corporations.
We will never be a mega party because to be one means separating ourselves from the grassroots & the most needy in society.
Never gonna happen.

All the best

Dustin PERRY

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the email.

Flux doesn't actually have any policies, and therefore we don't like to promote a particular position on anything. Instead of asking voters to choose us for a particular policy package like most traditional Parties do, we are simply offering a system that allows better representation of the community.

We have developed a smartphone app that every registered voter in an elected Flux Senators state will be able to download free. As Bills are due to come before Parliament, Flux Senators will enter them into the app, where members of the community will then have the opportunity to vote yes or no on the individual issue, and the app data then informs the Flux Senator of how they must vote. This happens for every Bill that comes before Parliament, and it is the only influence on how we vote, which ensures votes are being made in Parliament in true accordance with the will of the people.

With a Flux Senator elected, you will have some influence on how we vote on every Bill, including any pizza topping related legislation. As for the horse/duck battle, I feel like the answer is probably the 50 duck sized horses, but I can't commit until I know the exact breed of duck and horses involved, and any weapons that I may have available. Also, can I ride a horse sized duck to fight the duck sized horses, and is it duck season?

Thanks, and I hope this gives you the confidence to vote Flux.

Dustin Perry
Flux Senate Candidate for Victoria.

Seb CARRIE-WILSON

Hi Andy,

The Flux Party is an apolitical party with aim of promoting issue based direct democracy using using the Flux App.

For example if a piece of legislation concerning Transport funding, Assistance Act, NDIS was put before parliament, every enrolled voter could vote to pass or reject the legislation.

With the flux model every citizen has a vote instead of just the politicians.

GROUP T (Australian Workers Party)
Narelle EVERARD

Dear Andy,
I hope my responses provide some assistance in your decision making.

What’s your position on roads and public transport? Specifically, road congestion in and around the Melbourne area, and public transport services?
- The Australian Workers Party recognises the importance of infrastructure for individuals and business alike. We support the development of world class public transport. We support those who choose to ride or walk - and to that end to provide safe footpaths and bike paths.
We are keen to see improved rail speeds and services from rural Victoria to promote commuter use of public transport from rural areas. We support extension of tram and bus networks. We support investment in transport infrastructure - for safe roads and seamless public transport.
Please see our transport policy for more information.
http://www.australianworkersparty.org/transport.html

Given the choice, would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or 50 duck-sized horses?
I prefer not to harm animals. But I'm not afraid to fight for outcomes that improve people's lives.

What would be your stance on the repeal of, or heavy changes to, the Assistance And Access Act (2018)?
I am not a fan of people using encryption in order to operate outside the spirit of fairness. To that end, I have been involved in criminal investigations where electronic communication holds the key evidence of foul play and I recognise the importance of being able to gain access to data that provides evidence of such activity.
That said, privacy is not something to be lightly abandoned. And to that end, I would support the Parliamentary Review process for this Act that was intended to commence in April 2019.

Pineapple on pizza – yes or no?

No!

What’s your policy on the NDIS?
We have known corrupt contractors overseeing significant aspects of this roll out, and poorly.
We support fully funding the NDIS. We support oversight of access to be removed from profit driven companies such as Serco.
We are disturbed that this new institution is taking so long to fully implement.
We are committed to equity.

In short, why should I vote for you?

If you are a supporter of equity and equality, of immediate climate action, of social and environmental justice, we just might be the party for you. If you would like to see refugee justice, policies aimed at revitalising regional Australia to take some pressure of our state capitals, better wages, fairer small business policy and world class education and health care - I invite you to learn more about us. If you think government should support innovative small businesses who are committed to finding solutions to climate and other challenges, while ensuring workers receive fair wages and safe conditions, we have shared values.

Please check out our policies at www.australianworkersparty.org or have a look at our Facebook pages @narelleeverard4senator or @ausworkersparty;
Should you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope that helps.

Yours sincerely,

Hi Andy.

Thanks for getting in touch.

Here's my response to your questions:

What’s your position on roads and public transport? Specifically, road congestion in and around the Melbourne area, and public transport services?
A government that is serious about building the 21st century infrastructure for our cities and regions must put money on the table for public transport projects to give us the accessible, affordable, clean and connected cities and regions that Australians deserve. Yet funding for roads still makes up more than 4 in every 5 dollars of federal government transport investment. This cannot continue. The Greens will introduce a dedicated public and active transport investment fund of $25 billion over the next decade.

In Melbourne, we’ll upgrade high capacity signalling on our train network and work with the state government to buy and run more trains and trams, ensuring that more services are available to keep pace with our growing population. We’ll also have more announcements in the weeks ahead about specific new projects we would contribute towards, and we’d axe the West Gate Tunnel and North East Link which would spends tens of billions to and do nothing to prevent congestion while clogging our streets with more traffic.

Given the choice, would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or 50 duck-sized horses?
Definitely a horse sized duck – much easier to knock off a big goliath off than an army of community activists! My favourite quote of all time is from Margaret Mead ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
So fifty duck sized horses could do amazing things

What would be your stance on the repeal of, or heavy changes to, the Assistance And Access Act (2018)?
The Australian Greens, without exception, support the right of Australian citizens to access and use encrypted communication platforms and services without interference or interception by government Agencies. The passing of the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Act 2018 was principally and procedurally an erosion of digital rights and the Australian Green’s absolutely support the repeal of the Act. Moreover, the rushed passing of this legislation was enabled by a deal struck by the Labor Party and the Liberal National Government to the exclusion of proper process and extensive debate, highlighting that the major parties do not listen to the community, they do not understand the complexity of encrypted technologies, and ultimately, they do not respect the digital rights of Australian citizens. The Green’s are the only voice in our parliament who actively engage with the telecommunications sector and with digital rights groups to ensure that policy-making in this space is consistent with community expectations .

Pineapple on pizza – yes or no?
I uphold the right of anyone to put whatever they like on their pizza, whether that be pineapple or horseradish or icecream. However for me personally, no

What’s your policy on the NDIS?
The NDIS has the potential to transform the lives of disabled people, their families and carers. But to do this the scheme needs to work, deliver on its promises, and meet the needs of people. The Greens are committed to creating a fully funded and adequately staffed NDIS that is transparent, consultative and accountable. This includes adequate staffing and staff training and removing the staffing caps. It also includes improving IT systems and interfaces for participants and service providers.

In short, why should I vote for you?

Because I’m an activist, a campaigner, and passionate about and have a track record of working for a more sustainable and just world. Tackling our climate emergency and reducing inequality in our society are twin problems Australia and the world faces, and The Greens are committed to doing what is necessary to address them, including by cleaning up our politics from the corrupting influence of big corporations and their donations

And we need the Greens in the Senate to hold the government to account.

Hi Andy,

As a member of the Greens, many of our policies (or views on other party's policies) are publicly available online. But that can sometimes be difficult to track down, so I've found the relevant pages for you. The answers to your questions, both from the Greens and with my own personal input, are as follows:

Public Transport is a state issue far more than a federal one, but our policies on it from the state election last year can be found here, including a pledge to upgrade many of our transport services. Speaking personally, I take public transport around the inner city quite often, and agree it's in desperate need for an upgrade to make that transport much more convenient. I grew up in Adelaide, and I've seen what neglect to a public transport system can do.

The Victorian Greens don't have a policy on would you rathers, but I would personally choose to fight a horse-sized duck. Not because I would want to win or even think I could, but because I think it would be my only chance to see a horse-sized duck.

Our spokesperson for Digital Rights and IT, Jordon Steele-John, has been a critic of the Assistance and Access Act, and the Coalition's eagerness to push it through, calling it 'an affront to transparent, open and accountable government' and the policy itself to be 'massive government overreach'. His full statement can be found here, and as a prolific user of the internet I wholeheartedly agree.

I wouldn't choose to have pineapple on pizza if I were picking the toppings, but I'm in full support of others having any toppings they want. I myself would also choose pineapple over some other 'standard' toppings any day of the week.

The Greens have pledged to fully fund the NDIS. As somebody who has needed disability services in the past, and who knows many who still do, I wholeheartedly support this policy, and related policies to improve mental health and aged care services. Our full policy platform on this can be found here.

And as to why vote for me, I'm an openly transgender young woman with a heavyfocus on greater support for the marginalized communities of Australia, who aren't represented in our Parliament. The Greens are putting forward an all-woman Senate ticket this year, specifically to attempt to combat the overwhelming majority of straight, cisgender white men in our Parliament, who look nothing like the diverse public who elected them.

Hope this helps,
Claire Proctor

Rise Up would support moves to relieve congestion, building infrastructure and increase public transport.

Given the choice, would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or 50 duck-sized horses?

One horse-sized duck. As you only need to set one trap.

What would be your stance on the repeal of, or heavy changes to, the Assistance And Access Act (2018)?
As a long standing member of the local Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee, I understand the need to access for all, where possible.

Pineapple on pizza – yes or no?
Pineapple always good. But I prefer Supreme

What’s your policy on the NDIS?
We are formulating, however personally, as per above; would always support moves to increase assistance in form of NDIS access.

Our leader is uncompromising.
Vote for someone you can trust, but also who has been tried and tested.

Robert WHITEHILL

Hi Andy,

Public and Active Transport is one of my Big 3 policies (the other two are Environment & Sustainability and Autistic Acceptance). I’ve spent the past year creating a massive transport plan for how Victoria’s transport network should grow by 2050, which has the end goal of slashing traffic congestion, transport pollution and car dependency by promoting sustainable alternatives to the car. You can find here: http://www.robertwhitehill.net/SustainableTransportReport4Apr2019.pdf (careful; massive download). However, I do not support the building of new road projects because they encourage more people to drive, increasing congestion by more than they can carry, and increasing pollution through increased car use, meaning they are actually counter-productive. That said, I’m fine with widening existing roads provided they have no more than 2 lanes for cars.

I would rather face 1 horse-sized duck. An army of small horses is even more dangerous because they’d have 50 brains with which they can work together to take me down, not to mention they can be in multiple places at once, including hiding.

The topic surrounding the Assistance And Access Act (2018) involves security in the digital age, but does raise concerns about privacy. With terrorists using social media to spread their deadly propaganda worldwide in an instant, the balance of security and privacy is much harder to strike. If there was a way for government agencies to search for such websites and track where traffic comes in from (in addition to shutting them down outright), they could identify and watch suspected terrorists without having to invade the privacy of innocents. The same may need to be done for block bypass and proxy websites as needed, to close the loophole they provide.

I don’t put pineapple on pizza; the thought does gross me out. I accept, though, that everyone has different tastes, and so won’t judge people who do.

My older brother has a severe intellectual disability, so the NDIS is vital to us. Needless to say I oppose its funding being cut.

A vote for me is a vote for an actual vision for Victoria (and a big one at that), and a new way of thinking that is sorely needed in federal politics at the moment. Those visions and way of thinking could help teach the world to better adapt to a fast-changing world.

Hope that helps!

Kind regards,
Robert Whitehill

Hey Andy.

Unfortunately the federal government has significantly less direct influence over roads and congestion than the state government, so simply put I'd do my best. I think turning arrows should go clear at 90% of intersections after a period of time, I feel that with the increase of distracted drivers a count down until the light changes at traffic lights is significantly more advantageous that what was already an effective method. I would like to encourage innovation like this.

Definitely 50 duck sized horses.
A horse sized duck is omnivorous and often angry so has significantly more incentive to attack me where as 50 duck sized horses are numerous yes but they are herbivores and also not smart enough to strategically take me down.

I'd support a repeal or changes, I stopped using signal when they passed the Act and I guarantee that this conversation is being monitored, though maybe not just by our government considering my situation.

Depens on the pizza so yes.

The NDIS should be implemented in full and I was under the impression that was happening, despite slow start, but with a big system that was inevitable.

Vote for me because of the funny name. You know you want it.

Also because I plan on making politics easier to understand, less time consuming to become informed and more engaging.

Far right hand box on the Senate paper, second from the top, vote one Max Dicks.
