Description of, and challenges to, good government.

 

Area limits on electorates will ensure people from all areas of the State are effectively represented in parliament.

 

Term limits on Members of Parliament will minimize the likelihood of political corruption.

 

Election of the Premier by the People will ensure the Premier is subject and servant of the People, rather than of the majority faction of the Legislature.

 

The Premier executing governance separate from the Legislature will assist in limiting biased or corrupt governance between the Premier and the Legislature.

 

The Premier elected by the People per electorate will ensure the Premier is subject and servant of the People from all areas of the state.

 

Ministers separate from the Legislature will enable appointments from a vastly wider range of capable candidates, while preventing the appointment of ministers from the Legislature as an exchange of favours between the Premier and Legislators.

  1. Clip 1. Idealistic such that would not be acceptable to the established power factions in Parliament.

    Clip 2. Unacceptable because it is the Joh Gerrymander re-stated. The better solution may be to decentralise government jobs to urban regional towns so that regional populations are growing rather than shrinking,

    Clip 3. Term limits are an excellent idea because it would prevent old fossils like Kevin Anderson polluting Parliament for about 30 years. Your eight (8) year double term is sound, with a Minister eligible for an extra four (4) years to complete any projects. This extension would be pro rata against the eight years. Other Federal fossils that would have been removed by this proposal are Bronwyn ”Choppergate” Bishop, even John Howard.

    Clip 4. There is only one reference to parties in the Australian Constitution and that was an amendment after the Whitlam Dismissal skulduggery by Joh proposing Colson as the replacement Senator.

    Clip 5. This seems to be a version of the US Presidential system which recent history has shown us is far from perfect. Greed and Corruption will always find a way to circumvent legislation.

    Clip 6. You are optimistic here. At present there is an allowance for separate Mayoral elections from Council elections, that is, two separate elections for the two positions; Local Government Act 1993 (NSW). In Parliament the position of strength would move from the Premier to the Ministers who would by-pass the premier in their Ministerial dealings, while still permitting corruption. Think Gassy Taylor & the $80 MILLION empty glass of MDB water.

    Clip 7. Idealistic but likely too cumbersome to be practical.

    Clip 8. Again, this is the US model where Secretaries of the government may be anyone that the President thinks is appropriate and confirmed by Congress. In the present Scummo Australian misgovernment this would be an excellent idea because none of present Ministers have a sensible idea between them.
