From data obtained from your website it appears that the Lokpal had received only 1427 complaints in the first year. The outcome must have been so ineffective that citizens filed only 110 complaints in the subsequent year and in the first six months of 2021-22 filed only 30 complaints.
It appears the Lokpal has become a senior citizen’s club with no accountability. We are sure you recognise that the over 60 crores spent by the Lokpal has come from the pocket of the poorest man in the Nation who may be starving. The Lokpal was set up with great hope and effort by a citizen’s movement. The Lokpal has had zero impact on the corruption in the country and does not seem to be aware of its pathetic performance. If you realise that you are not able to deliver, all of you should either find a way of discharging your duty or resign. Only Justice Bhosale appears to have resigned listening to the voice of his conscience. Public servants in such high positions must atleast display this level of honesty.
Citizens will lose all faith in such institutions set up to monitor the government if this charade of being an ombudsman continues. Spending public money with no accountability is not acceptable. We expect you will respond to this petition with appropriate action so that the institution does not become a joke.Read more

Petition to Australian federal government, Scott Morrison, Josh Frydenberg, Michaelia Cash
Dear Mr Morrison,
I think you forgot something in your recent stimulus package.
My question - is there a way for the Govt. to help Sole Trader businesses survive a quarantine period?
Sole Traders make up well over one million of the total number of business owners in Australia.
*ABS most recent stats 2015
*97.4% of all business in Australia are small businesses.
*Very small businesses are much more likely to cease trading over time than larger firms. Only 55.9% of non-employing businesses and 68.0% of micro-businesses operating in June 2010 were still operating four years later in June 2014. This compares with a survival rate of 76.9% for small businesses employing between 5 and 19 employees, 81.4% for medium sized firms and 83.7% for large firms.
*There were 1.3 million sole trader, non employing businesses in Australia.
*Non-employing businesses accounted for 62.3% of all small businesses, micro-businesses employing accounted for 27.9% and businesses with 5 to 19 employees accounted for 9.8%
So running a sole trader business that has longevity is a huge challenge PRE coronavirus.
My business has already lost $1,000's of its most profitable income through cancellation of weekend events from the fires/floods and this is set to rise to $10-15k for the year as more events are being cancelled because of Coronavirus.
Just had three full big weekends of work cancelled end of March and April and May. This weekend work is on top of a 12 hour day, Mon-Fri week.
Keep in mind for these types of extremely small businesses there can be little or no provision for:
- sick or carers leave, no holiday pay or super- zero income for two weeks
Loans/mortgages/rent will still need to be paid
Insurances and fees still need to be paid
Utility costs still need to be paid
Business vehicle running costs
Dead (stock already purchased not being sold) or lost stock as a result of spoilage or just no sales
If I had to self isolate or be forced to isolate for 14 days (as they are in Italy) I'd go out of business. We run week to week on cash flow. If we don't hit our daily target we go backwards, with no real chance of catching up. Except by way of events at weekends, which are now all but cancelled.
Mr Morrison, I am just one sole trader (ST) from 1.3 million+ non employment sole traders in Australia, but this is my reality.
Concerned? We all should be. Australia and this example is a micro image of the 1st World right now.Read more
Libre’s Law was put into effect last year in PA. It covers pets being tethered outside in extreme temperatures. No longer than 30 minutes at a time or a total of 9 hours per day. It states to call the authorities and even 911! The problem is no one wants to investigate. We have called over 6 times for a dog left out and only 1 time the SPCA came out and did nothing. It’s time to amend these laws! No pet should be kept outside in extreme conditions whether tethered or just let to roam free. Just because they have a “box” to go in doesn’t make it adequate to maintain proper body temperature. We have to be the voice for those who cannot speak. Read more
