Government Must Act on Petitions with more than 100,000 Signatures
Petition Background (Preamble):
There are at the moment at least three matters on which the Australian public should be allowed to make the decision.
Ist - The immigration of illegal boat people - which includes Muslims. Current polls show that around 70% of Australians are against this as these people do NOT integrate and cause dissent within our communities.
2nd - Climate change. No real figures have been produced to support Global Warming and in fact, most figures available show that cooling and warming are a natural events. Volcanoes produce more CO2 per day than man does in 10 years. The government is merely using the panic to introduce a Carbon Tax.
3rd - National Broadband Network. This is NOT needed. Government is looking at a download speed of 12 Megabits a second when we are currently getting 8 MB/S. This is well and truly sufficient. Country areas should be provided with satellite downloads at the same cost as ADSL and the NBN should be scrapped as the predicted $37 BILLION cost will no doubt blow out and the funding can be well used elsewhere.
The Australian people have a right to decide these individual issues as politicians vote only on party lines and NOT as their constituents wish.
If a petition has more than 100,000 signatures, then parliament should initiate a referendum process.
If the petition has more that 500,000 signatures then parliament should change the legislation in accordance with the petition without holding a referendum.
