This Blue Paper is a draft prescriptive standard for Australianness, arising out of multiple challenges to Australian values by foreign influences, by anti-Australian sentiment and by our governments kowtowing to unethical and backward cultures that are undermining Australian traditional values. This is a feeder document toward nationalist policy and subsequent draft proposed law, inviting input and debate by Australians.
- Reform and overhaul transport throughout Australia integrating policy and programmes with Economic Nationalism
- Goods and Services Tax revenue to the states to be proportionately retains by th Australian Government to completely take over all transport responsibilities
Nationalise Fuel Pricing
- Rationalisation of variable fuel pricing into a single national fuel price set by the Australian Government, since under Economic Nationsm policy, the Australia Government is to compulsorily acquire, control and manage Australia’s energy resources including all fuels.
- National fuel pricing to abolish all excise charges and instead apply a kilometre travel tax on all road users across Australia, and disallow business travel expenses such as the $0.66 cents per kilometer expense claim.
Nationalise Toll Motorways
- Phased compulsory acquisition of all toll motorways across Australia by rhe Australia Government at cost price
- Commensurate elimination of all tolls and reinstating freeway status since these were paid for by Australia taxpayers
Nationalise Public Transport
- Reform public passenger transport on an Australia-wide basis – both line-haul (long distance) and local distribution
- Transition local council and state government responsibilities for transport completely to the Australian Government
- Nationalise passenger rail, bus, tram/ light-rail and ferry services – funding, infrastructure, rolling stock, service delivery, the lot
- All public passenger service drivers to be compulsorily covered under a new Australian Transport Award in which a driver must be paid a set minimum hourly rate on a 15 minute minimum increment basis, and earn penalty rate loading for work after dark, on Sundays and on Australian Public Holidays work. (State-variable public holidays to be harmonised to a nationally consistent timing).
Reform Freight Transport Nationally
- Reform freight transport on an Australia-wide basis – both line-haul (long distance) and local distribution
- Freight transport drivers to be compulsorily covered under a new Australian Transport Award
Reinstate Australian Coastal Shipping
- Reinstate Australian coastal shipping (passenger and freight), reinstate cabotage, prohibit foreign carriers and foreign ownership of shipping services with Australian territorial waters
- Nationalise taxi services across Australia into a single Australian Government owned, controlled and operated corporatised agency
- Taxis to integrate with all public transport to provide the transport stop/hub to door service component for a given trip, excluding locations deemed to be remote (test: no sewage connected)
- Remote locations throughout Australia to continue to be accessible only by privately funded and resourced means. For instance, public transport does not exist to service those choosing to reside or travel beyond regional habitation to the Simpson Desert.
- Outlaw ride-share services, since these breach taxi standards for public transport – service delivery, driver training and safety
- Reform taxi service standards to improve service standards for First World best practice – customer affordability, driver equity, integration with other public transport services – trains, buses, trams, light rail, ferries
- Taxi drivers and employees to be compulsorily Australian-born only, subject to high eligibility criteria, background checks and Australian Government designed and dispensed training
