The Great Australians was an Australian political party. The party was founded in 2003 by John James Cumming then led by John Rivett, a Queensland businessman who has started and run many businesses. Its policies included the institution of a 2% "Spending Tax" on all spending made by individuals and companies and the abolition of income tax and the goods and services tax, the reinstitution of national service (i.e. conscription into the military), the abolition of Double Tax Conventions and reinstituting trade protection and the nationalisation of infrastructure. It stood two candidates in the Senate in both New South Wales and Queensland at the 2004 election, as well as candidates in House of Representatives seats who attracted a total of 0.02% of the national primary vote, or approximately 2,824 votes nationwide. The party was deregistered in 2006.[1]
