Why is Legal Culpability of the Australian Government Important?

Why is legal culpability of the Australian government important?

For too long there has been no measure of consequence for the bad decisions we make.

For the negative impact on our climate and for public health crises, such as the epidemic of mental health issues among young people.

Our government is only concerned with accountability and public opinion in the immediate weeks before an election.

I will change this to give the power to the people, making the federal government legally culpable for any decisions made which negatively affect the public.

This includes giving legal standing for children to:

  • Sue the government for failing to act on child safety data
  • Hold the government to account for failure to act on climate change

There should be legal consequences for the government for its failure to act - particularly where decisions affect children now and of future generations.
