One Nation will not be supporting this. We will be opposing it because it's simply Stephen Jones protecting the bankers again by removing penalties. We would want to amend it, not support it. I chaired the Senate Select Committee on Lending to Primary Production Customers. We saw firsthand the heinous activities of the banks. We now see that former Labor Queensland premier Anna Bligh is the head of the Australian Banking Association. Please explain. So we have Liberals and Labor running interference for the banks and protecting the banks. We've got rural bank closures accelerating and no provisions for their replacement. We need a postal bank and we have to stop equity theft in this country, because that's what the banks are doing.
