The Six Billion Dollar Conundrum - The Victorian state government raised 6 billion dollars from stamp duty last year. This tax is paid when people purchase property in Victoria. Billions of dollars in land tax that companies and people owning more than one property pay every year was also collected by the state government. On all available indicators Victoria and Australia is in the midst of a housing affordability crisis. Paradoxically, the Victorian Labor government’s response to this crisis is to destroy what’s left of the public housing sector.

The Cat’s Out Of The Bag - Just in case you’ve been taken in by the propaganda being spewed out of the office of the Minister for Housing, Mr. Martin Foley, regarding how private public partnerships are the way forward for public housing, think again. If the Ashburton public private partnership debacle is anything to go by, continuing to promote these policies will be a disaster for all Victorians.

Confused? - If you are confused about the terminology that is used by the Victorian State government, the Opposition, government bureaucracy, the community and social housing sector, the corporate owned media and the ABC about public housing, then read on.

Why Stand in the Dunkley Electorate at the Forthcoming Election? - Whether the Federal election is held on the 2nd July or September, Public Interests Before Corporate Interests (PIBCI) will not be registered as a Federal political party until February/March 2017. Although we currently have around 700 members, we will not have all the relevant paperwork required to lodge our application for registration as a political party until September/October 2016. If our application is accepted, it takes about four months to be processed (once an election is called the Australian Electoral Commission stops processing applications until the new government is sworn in).

Faced with these facts and the recent voting changes to the Senate, I could either not participate in the Federal election or I could stand as an Independent on a Public Interests Before Corporate Interests platform in the Federal electorate PIBCI has most members in – Dunkley.

Make the 1% Pay 1% - You can vote for the same old parties making promises you know they will never keep or you can vote for Independent Candidate Dr. Joseph Toscano.
