Dear Cross Bench and National Senators,

Australia needs you.

The Cartel, with about 50 members in the Parliament of the Commonwealth supported by 150,000 Police throughout Australia is a bipartisan equivalent of a State Church and represents the greatest conflict of interest ever put upon a civilian population. The Cartel I talk about is comprised of members of the Law Societies in every State and while the Parliament of the Commonwealth in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 has banned cartels, this particular one of which both Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten are members and whose continued membership of the Parliament of the Commonwealth depends on their support by State Party Organisations much beholden to the Cartel.

The Cartel is in power irrespective of which Party of the two Parties wins power, and have used their public office to give private benefits to members of the Cartel and virtually grant them immunity from prosecution. This has been done by having the Parliament of the Commonwealth enact S 9.5 Director of Public Prosecutions Act 1983, preventing anyone under S 13 or 15F Crimes Act 1914, ( Cth) prosecuting members of this Cartel. This is a Public Cartel costing Australia so much the Commonwealth Budget is in deficit. Every time a member of this cartel holds Court, the first question asked is, “Have you legal representation” . Or in other words, “Are you employing a member of My Cartel”.

With nine Private Armies one for each of the nine States in Australia ( The Commonwealth is a State) the cartel wields enormous unfettered power, over all aspects of everybodies lives, and the Top 20 Companies pay tribute to the Cartel for protection, through members Law Firms. Big Banks, Insurance Companies and Big Miners all pay. Insurance Companies save billions in unpaid claims using the Cartels members. Big Banks make billions in illegal profits using the Cartel.

Please get re-elected and start campaigning for a fair go for all Australians irrespective of their private wealth.

FROM WIKIPAEDIA : In economics, a cartel is an agreement between competing firms to control prices or exclude entry of a new competitor in a market. It is a formal organization of sellers or buyers that agree to fix selling prices, purchase prices, or reduce production using a variety of tactics.[1] Cartels usually arise in an oligopolistic industry, where the number of sellers is small or sales are highly concentrated and the products being traded are usually commodities. Cartel members may agree on such matters as setting minimum or target prices (price fixing), reducing total industry output, fixing market shares, allocating customers, allocating territories, bid rigging, establishment of common sales agencies, altering the conditions of sale, or combination of these. The aim of such collusion (also called the cartel agreement) is to increase individual members’ profits by reducing competition. If the cartelists do not agree on market shares, they must have a plan to share the extra monopoly profits generated by the cartel.

One can distinguish private cartels from public cartels. In the public cartel a government is involved to enforce the cartel agreement, and the government’s sovereignty shields such cartels from legal actions.
