Every past minister has had the same problem, no minister is ever liked, be it over budgets, or in this case bad conduct.
Almost every inquiry into projects at defence shows a crazy disregard for budgets and the cost over runs on projects is beyond a joke.
No minister has ever been able to pull them into line, they think they are a law unto themselves
This minister is shaking them up, he should not back down and most Australians agree.
He is not attacking the the fighting arms of the forces he is attacking the hierarchy for their attitude, this would not be tolerated in ordinary life in Australia!
Discipline is a key word in the forces and it's about time their leaders showed some and obeyed their government.
