11. CDP supports government assistance to community organisations who promote chaste lifestyles before marriage and fidelity in marriage as the best preventative for AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

While not directly against "AIDS Prevention" its not exactly the best idea.

35. Said Partial here because there is no specific policy, but Negative Income Tax policy would presumably provide payment to stay at home parents. --mikel Mon Aug 02 201017:09:22 GMT+1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

36. Means testing in that the Negative Income Tax rebate only applied to individuals with an income of under $30,000. --mikel Mon Aug 02 2010 17:10:22 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

39. Would call for a review. --mikel Mon Aug 02 201017:11:55 GMT+1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

40. Would re-Iegalize recreational marijuana, presumably includes medical marijuana as well. --insane.au Tue Aug 10 2010 19:12:04 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

41. Seems to be a nugget from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_First_Party#Environment --p858snake Thursday, 12 August 20105:46:40 PM

It would be great to clarify exactly what this means. Otherwise its a polnfless entry. The Murray-Darling Basin will exist regardless of the support of any party. And I'm pretty sure that the Family First Party don't oppose "The Murray-Darling Basin", although one can never be entirely sure -- Monday, 2 August 20101 :27:23 PM

42. Not too sure what this is supporting, supporting it being there? Supporting something happening there? Labor have a plan for the area so I guess this should be a support -- Fri Jul30 2010 22:33:41 GMT+1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

43. They oppose a river system??? Do they want to fill it in? -- Thursday, 5 August 20103:50:24 AM

44. EVERYTHING on this doc is an election promise if you want to look at it that way

They're election promises, nothing is set in stone. -- Fri Jul30 2010 22:32:46 GMT+1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

They arguably do not support carbon pricing given their recent announcements to hold a citizen's assembly and do nothing for three years at least --timothy. morton Wednesday, 28 July 2010 11 :03:05 AM

45. set in stone -- Sunday, 1 August 2010 6:48:23 AM Where can one see this stone?

46. They're election promises, nothing is set in stone. -- Sunday, 1 August 20106:47:54 AM

Apparently support a Carbon Tax solution rather than a ETS scheme -- (According to reps. on ABC2 morning show) -- @rotbart

Support interim Carbon Tax until ETS can be worked out.

47. http://www.saJamilyfirst.org.au/speeches-and-questions/Desalination%20Plant.htm --xrobau Thu Aug 12201017:11:55 GMT+1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

48. Assuming this means federally-funded expansion? --mikel Mon Aug 02 201017:49:19 GMT+1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

49. Pretty sure the LOP is against Commonwealth funding of transport, but would deregulate it, and whether that would result in expansion or otherwise is up for debate. -mikel Mon Aug 02 201017:49:49 GMT+1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

52. You could apply that to lots of categories for all parties, the greens only partially support lots of things on this doc but they're marked as support

Perhaps some of these should say partial. Everybody loves to say they support renewable energy, but the Greens clearly support it more strongly than others. -- Tuesday, 3 August 2010 1 :56:30 PM

53. Supports 100% Renewable energy by 2020 - the most far-reaching pro-renewable policy of any party -- Thursday, 5 August 2010 1 :40:54 PM

54. http://greens.org.au/policies/climate-change-and-energy/nuclear

-- Sat Jul 24 2010 23:01 :42 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

55. John Howard took nuclear power development to the 2007 election http://www.news.com.au/howards-nuclear-vision-unveiled/story-e6frfkp9-1111113429896 -- Fri Aug 06201022:54:13 GMT+1000 (EST)

Tony Abbott has said the Liberal party is not "theologically opposed to nuclear power", but there isn't a need now. -- Fri Aug 06 2010 22:50:07 GMT +1000 (EST) 56. http://greens.org.au/policies/climate-change-and-energy/nuclear

-- Sat Jul 24201023:01 :12 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

57. No it isn't, AWA's were around before "WorkChoices"

This is a term from the WorkChoices legislation and is misleading to separate the two. Perhaps better to talk about 'individual contracts' --timothy. morton Wednesday, 28 July 2010 11 :04:05 AM

58. http://greens.org.au/policies/sustainable-economy/employment-and-industrial-relations -- 2 August 20106:44:04 PM AEST

59. They have just announced they will scrap the concept: http://www.smh.com.au/federal-election/coalition-to-dump-flawed-internet-filter-20100805-11kmv.html --blardles Thu 05 Aug 2010 08:53:40 PM EST

Reference? Some senior MPs such as Hockey and a few senators have spoken out against it. Others have claimed to support "Reasonable and workable measures" to block access to inappropriate content. -- Tuesday, 3 August 20101 :52:11 PM

60. http://greensmps.org.au/content/speech/internet-filtering

-- Sat Jul 24201023:09:09 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time) 61. It doesn't really matter; either way, the impact is identical.

does this mean the rating or X-rated material? -- Tue Aug 03 201018:51 :26 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

I assume it means any that is currently rated x would be RC

62. It's an increase for the highest earners, sort of like Labors mining tax except it actually will effect the prices of groceries (Coles, Woolworths etc will take this tax hist). -Tue Aug 03 201016:22:05 GMT+1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

It's being tiered into a progressive system - top 3000 pay 31.7% in 2011, then 30.2% in 2013, rest pay 28.5% in 2013 -- Tue Aug 032010 04:54:04 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

They are increasing it to fund their paid maternity leave -- Mon Aug 02 201019:42:02 GMT +1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

The Libs are describing it as a temporary levy, which will be removed in the future. Regardless it is a tax decrease, versus what the Greens are proposing. It would probably be better to divide this into two sections.

63. It's an increase for the highest earners, sort of like Labors mining tax except it actually will effect the prices of groceries (Coles, Woolworths etc will take this tax hist). -Tue Aug 03 201016:22:05 GMT+1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

It's being tiered into a progressive system - top 3000 pay 31.7% in 2011, then 30.2% in 2013, rest pay 28.5% in 2013 -- Tue Aug 032010 04:54:04 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

They are increasing it to fund their paid maternity leave -- Mon Aug 02 201019:42:02 GMT +1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

64. With caveats, for an industry who wanted reform. They are abolishing the resource royalties tax that are currently paid and sharing risk, no mine operations have shut because of the tax. -- Tue Aug 03 201016:23:51 GMT+1000 (E. Australia Standard Time)

65. http://www.itwire.com/it-policy-news/government-tech-policy/40853-we-lose-nbn-you-lose-our-vote-poll-tells-abbott



66. Would support school vouchers, so they would effectively support whichever schools parents wanted. --insane.au Sat Aug 14 2010 03: 11 :58 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

67. Added the NSCP. -- Tuesday, 3 August 201012:00:26 AM

69. support for 3 more years -- Tue Aug 03201009:49:45 GMT +1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)

70. Allow schools to choose secular councillors instead of chaplains for funding -- Tuesday, 3 August 2010 12:28:57 AM

71. Current policy mentions 'Fixed Terms' but no length specified. http://greens.org.au/policies/human-rights-democracy/constitutional-reform-and-democracy --ictinus Mon Aug 02201022:52:26 GMT+1000 (AUS Eastern Standard Time)
