Greens and Labor have put a federal ICAC bill up and Morrison has knocked it back 14 times! What's he got to hide?

A:

We don’t know what Morrison has to hide, but indications are the Coalition is riddled with corruption.

FIN supports the Greens pro-ICAC policy, less so Labor’s watered-down proposal for a National Integrity Commission.

It was only 2019 that Albanese argued against a Federal ICAC.

Wouldn’t it be better to throw your support behind one of the other parties calling a federal ICAC seeing that is your main agenda?

A:

Efforts by other parties to establish an adequately funded and empowered Federal ICAC are to be encouraged, but other parties have competing priorities. The fight against political corruption is not their number one concern.

FIN’s sole aim is the creation of a Federal ICAC.

Political corruption affects all voters, left, right and centre.

FIN will give the electorate the chance to send a meaningful anti-corruption message to politicians of every party.

Only about anti-corruption? Getting elected is far broader than that. So what is your party's ideology?

A:

Ideology is a combination of ideas and ideals. Many are very complex, FIN’s is very simple.
