On the back of #choppergate, that saw the speaker lose her position.Also a recent trip to Venice by the Attorney general, where he had a lovely luxury gondola ride on our coin. Where he also found time to have a clandestine meeting with Cardinal Pell a required witness in a current Royal Commission into sexual abuse. We have Joe Hockey using his allowance as an investment tool definitely in Canberra and possibly in Cairns. He refuses to respond to the Cairns question. Joe claims others are doing it which I imagine is true. Gauging by the huge MP allowances bill over the past 12 months $506,000,000 in 2015/16 there will be many who have blurred the lines. Many that have broken laws. Many that are unfit for the office they hold.
It's my perception that many of our statutory authorities are mere facades.They have been rendered as such over time via political appointments."Jobs for the boys" so to speak.Seems to be the way of the world. This is evident in the three tiers of Government we have in Australia.It's a huge drain on our nation and its efficiency. It appears to be how our politicians want it to be. It seems it is by design.
As taxpayers, you are entitled to expect better. You are entitled to expect they will be frugal with the funds you provide. You are currently being treated with disdain by your politicians. Welcome to #auspol
