First it was the the Bank Royal Commission that was opposed by the LNP and now its a Federal Anti corruption watchdog,. 

You would think that they would have learned from their "helping the big end of town, mates" tag, they would have jumped at the opportunity to create a Federal Anti corruption watchdog. But, no!

An integrity commission was an important measure to restore public trust in the political system.
Governments ignore at their peril demands by citizens to combat corruption with vigour.

Attorney General Porter has warned the model proposed would “apply extraordinary powers against all public servants, including ABC and ABS journalists”. A very strange remark?

“Those powers could be used without proper checks and balances and at large because of an incredibly broad and low definition of corruption including basic administrative errors and process failures by public servants,” Mr Porter said. Again he is trying to frighten people off the idea. Why?

Even though we have a group of judges crying out for a commission it appears they don't want the same integrity commission extending to cover the judiciary. ????

Only people with something to hide should fear such a body.

Corruption is insidious it always exists because humans have flaws, so anyone who believes it doesn't exist in our Australian system is in La,La land.
