I wonder if Melbourne's Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and councillors Arron Wood and Nicholas Reece sit on the Boards of any of the official charities who not only pay fat salaries to CEO's but also to lobbyists.



Should be a list of member's interests somewhere

If it is illegal to be homeless, it should be illegal to allow homelessness.

I think we should have the politicians who pass these laws put in jail until they come up with a way to provide jobs and shelter for those who partake in the illegal activity of being unemployed, hopeless and in many cases mentally unfit for most work.

We don't need to make being homeless illegal we need to provide jobs and shelter for those who are currently homeless.

This law is a load of crap, just like every other anti-homeless law.

We should allow the homeless to live in the politicians houses and put the politicians on the street.

Image how quickly that would change the laws.

Too many places make it a crime to be poor and homeless. Sick, truly. If the city can't provide shelters, they shouldn't complain. At the least, have some areas set up where camping is permissible.

There is no constitutional recognition of councils in the Australian Constitution.

That does not seem to bother them and it wont either because they are becoming private businesses without any accountability to anyone. This is because they are employing CEOs and Directors who take up most of the councils budget and see themselves as above the ratepayers and residents or citizens of the council. This itself is evidence of their private business orientation.

Councils are like private businesses but without any real customer base. certainly one that will hold them to account for their actions.

You will find they all have ABNs and are likely to be registered on the New York Stock Exchange.

Given this, I don't see them giving a stuff about homeless people any time soon.

Suggest the best way to fight this is to publicise their treatment of the homeless on as many local forums as you can such as this and lobby local councilors as hard as you can because like all politicians they react only to those who exert the most pressure on them.
