Psych, Drug & Alcohol testing Australian Politicians

This petition had 539 supporters

In light of recent DISGRACEFUL allegations of boozy evenings in federal parliament affecting votes on legislation being missed.
When so many of us PLEBS are made to complete pre-employment checks including psych evaluations, working with children, physical medicals, random drug & alcohol testing.

Surely, in the most important workplace in the land, we should AT LEAST be randomly Drug & Alcohol testing MP's & Senators entering the chamber to vote on highly important legislation that affects every Australian. 

In the event someone tests positive, the punishment should be to lock away 80% of their salary on a visa card for 6mths while they are tested weekly at random, if they test positive again within these 6mths, they would be terminated immediately.

Given MP's & Senators are also paid by the taxpayer, and very well at that, we MUST ensure that these large amounts of money is not being spent on drugs or alcohol. 

We the PLEBS fully expect that the Parliament be completely respected for the high place that it is and MP's & Senators act appropriately in that place.
