Only in passing, he didn't make a big deal out of it worse luck.

Big Mistake Bill !

I think these Border Force scandals are going to bring down Turnbull's crew once they land in court.

Morrison & Dutton must have known something was going on.

They've used the National Security excuse to cover it up.

Just like covering up cruelty to refugees.

Lock them up I say.   :mad:

Not necessarily a mistake by Bill.  At least one of the alleged suspects was recruited by Australian Border Security in 2012, when the ALP was in office.  Although the alleged misdemeanours appear to have occurred in the last year, further investigations may reveal corrupt activity extending to a period when the ALP was in office.

There has always been corruption in many areas of the public service, and usually no government has done amnything about it.


Look at the corrupt police in every state, under Labor and Libs.

If that is the case, so be it.

Corruption needs to be attacked with maximum effort no matter who is involved.  :mad:

Is this bloke England's answer to Barnaby Joyce or Clive Palmer ?


Nigel Farage has been heckled in the European Parliament after telling its members they were "in denial", and predicting Britain would not be the last country to leave the EU.

I think I have the same question as many. "Why was he there ?". To act like a moron is my only answer.

A former head of the New South Wales Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has said the criminal conviction of former state Labor minister Eddie Obeid vindicates the work of the corruption watchdog and strengthens the push for a similar body to be set up federally.


David Ipp, who headed ICAC from 2009 to 2014, said the Obeid guilty finding showed the watchdog's existing powers were justified and argued any move to wind them back should be abandoned.


I agree with David Ipp, a Federal ICAC would be much more useful to Australia than the Libs union bashing commission.  :/

It would be useful but neither major Party wants it.


The only chance of a Federal ICAC is a hung Parliament where Xenophon or the Greens insist on it as a condition of support.

As you may know I've been hoping for a hung parliment for some time.

Bill Shorten open to establishing federal anti-corruption body in wake of Eddie Obeid scandal.

I hope that you are fair dinkum about this Bill.

But I’m still looking for a hung parliament just in case.

Poll suggests Nick Xenophon Team could take lower house seats in SA.

Key points:

  • Poll shows Nick Xenophon Team in third place behind Labor in SA
  • Liberal seats in its sights include Mayo, Grey, Barker
  • Election expert NXT also a chance with disaffected Labor voters

Replacing a young gun like Ed Milliband with an old Socialist like Corbyn was a step into the past that obviously hasn't worked. British Labor needs some new blood and Corbyn should go.

Boris loses his bottle.


As I anticiptated, Boris Johnson pulls out of the leadership race in the wake of Brexit. He hasn't got what it takes to do the work that he created.

IMO, Boris wasn't really in favour of leaving the EU.

He only supported Brexit as a way to depose David Cameron.

Boris looked what is needed to disconnect the UK from the EU and too much like hard work !   :roll:
