We must stamp down on corruption: Richard Di Natale

13 Aug 2015

I rise today to speak in support of the National Integrity Bill. This is the third time the Parliament has had the opportunity to consider this bill. I am the third leader of the Australian Greens to put this bill before the Australian Parliament. I do so at a time where there is a tremendous appetite for reform in the area of politicians' entitlements and an appetite around the issue of corruption more generally.

We had a rare opportunity to end discrimination

12 Aug 2015

I would love to be standing up here today debating the issue of discrimination in marriage and taking a stand with the great majority of the Australian community who wants to see an end to discrimination in marriage.

I wish we had a public gallery packed to celebrate  a rare moment of unity in this parliament to end discrimination once and for all. Instead we are here on the back of a decision by the Prime Minister who has once again failed to lead this country into the 21st century.
