Now Australia's deficiencies & restrictions of freedom are recognised by international monitoring organisation

"Mr Clarke said it was time to create an Australian Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms to ensure the decisions and actions of our governments are guided by the values of freedom, equality and compassion.

“Powerful politicians and their corporate backers don’t always respect the rights of individual people or communities. We need to create an Australian Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms to help level the playing field,” said Mr Clarke."

The Australian HRLC 2020 report clearly states:
" When our democracy works, the wellbeing of people, the planet and future generations is at the heart of every government decision. But right now, our political system isn’t the level playing field we need it to be. Australia’s political donation and spending laws are incredibly weak when compared with other democracies. Unlike the UK, Canada and New Zealand, Australia does not limit how much can be spent on election campaigns and spending is increasing exponentially at each election. Our national laws also lag far behind state laws, almost all of which limit political donations. Our outdated laws are enabling certain vested interests to wield disproportionate influence over government decision-making and to distort policy outcomes on important issues, such as climate change and human rights."
I suspect however that the assertion of it once having worked only held true because of the ignorance of corporate lobyists failing to wield their despotic influences.
Wake up Australians.

Well recognition of the issue is definitely a good start. Here’s hoping they will be looked into and updated.
