Establish a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog Now

Australia’s trust in federal politics is at an all-time low. Australians have never trusted our politicians less.


It is time to create an independent anti-corruption watchdog to investigate and expose corruption and serious misconduct at a Federal level. The public is sick and tired of the lack of accountability revealed by repeat scandals involving federal politicians and public servants.


This is a national issue that cannot be ignored any longer.


In fact, Australia Institute research shows 88% of Australians support a federal anti-corruption watchdog, and 78% support establishing a federal anti-corruption watchdog with public hearings.


To restore faith in our democracy and help politics help itself Australia needs a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog with teeth.


Enough is enough: we need a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog now. Add your name to the call >

To the Prime Minister

We urge you to help restore integrity, accountability and trust in the Federal Parliament and Australian Public Service.

We need a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog with teeth.

    We must continue to pursue the establishment of this Integrity Commission, and we must ensure that it has strong ‘teeth’. Not the watered-down, ineffective Coalition version. So much to be investogated!

    The re enactment of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia, which all politicians have been ignoring and committing treason in an over reach of powers that have harmed both the country and it’s people.

    Now more then ever there needs to be anti-corruption watch dog watching over all public servant and federal politician decisions made which involves public money.

    We need an ICAC for the Government (Federal, State, Local) and for the Public Service, it needs to target spending, donations and awarding of contracts to donors (SERCO for example should not have one single contract, ADANI – bankrupt INDIAN Company for example?) and planning approvals, environmental approvals, land clearing. What is happening now is offensive, it’s no longer the Australia I was born in, and Nigeria and North Korea seem more legitimate and genuine than this shite hole.

    This is long overdue. There is no excuse to refuse the accountability offered by a federal ICAC, it will go a long way to restore public faith in federal government to have it up and running. Too many “errors” of judgement are made with little oversight. It needs to be seen to be visibly accountable for it actions and this can only be ensured by the powers of ICAC
