Do you think this might catch on ?

Post  paul on Thu 11 Sep 2014, 7:10 pm

  Proposals to make politicians shoulder their share of the weight now that the Age of Entitlement is over
                   

                   1. Scrap political pensions.
                            Politicians can purchase their own retirement plan, just as most other working  Australians are expected to do.
                                   

                   2. Retired politicians (past, present & future) participate in Centrelink.
                           A Politician collects a substantial salary while in office but should receive no salary when they're out of office.
                           Terminated politicians under 70 can go get a job or apply for Centrelink unemployment benefits like ordinary Australians.
                           Terminated politicians under 70 can negotiate with Centrelink like the rest of the Australian people.

                   3. Funds already allocated to the Politicians' retirement fund be returned immediately to Consolidated Revenue.
                      
This money is to be used to pay down debt they created which they expect us and our grandchildren to repay for them. 
                     

                   4. Politicians will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Politicians pay will rise by the lower of, either the CPI or 3%.
                 
                   5. Politicians lose their privileged health care system and participate in the same health care system as ordinary Australian people.
                            i.e. Politicians either pay for private cover from their own funds or accept ordinary Medicare.
                   

                   6. Politicians must equally abide by all laws they impose on the Australian people.
                   
                   7. All contracts with past and present Politicians men/women are void effective 31/12/14.
                           The Australian people did not agree to provide perks to Politicians, that burden was thrust upon them.
                           Politicians devised all these contracts to benefit themselves.
                           Serving in Parliament is an honour not a career.
                           The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so our politicians should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

And you can add:

8. Politicians must, in addition to getting elected, pass a job interview, after submitting a written job application that demonstrates they are committed to working for the people they represent.

9. Politicians must have appropriate qualifications and/or experience.

10. Politicians must subscribe to a code of ethics - in the event they breach that code, they face immediate dismissal.

and don't forget
Politicians must rescind any previous foreign citizenship and provide written documents proving that to be the case

Face immediate dismissal and loss of any entitlement they would otherwise have enjoyed.

If you are taking this to the next election as a part of your policy Paul then - Idea  Vote 1 for Paul for PM.
