They had no policies* when in government, so no surprise there!!

I think morriscum is going to be fairly busy for the next few years between the robo debt royal commission and ICAC . He’s only just sitting around collecting tax payers dollars and doing a few speeches here and there so he’s got the time . https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2022/sep/27/federal-community...

From Guardian:

"Angus Taylor wants to see details of federal anti-corruption body legislation

Shadow treasurer Angus Taylor is speaking to ABC TV. He’s talking about the coalition’s “alternative economic agenda”, but he’s asked first about the anticorruption legislation. He says:

We support introduction of the legislation but it has to be right. The detail has to be right. I haven’t seen the detail of the legislation yet. We don’t want to see show trials and we have seen in the past there can be dire consequences if you get this wrong. We have seen suicides and very unfortunate outcomes. It is important that this be the right legislation, done the right way."

Fark off, if he is happy with ICAC it will be as weak as piss as he would be one of the first cabs off the rank to be in front of a judge...... Jam Land, Cayman Islands, Clover Moore..... FFS I think Angus may be stressing!!!

Beggars belief how Taylor and Joyce didn’t bring the whole government down at the time let alone politically survive (thrive?) given the watergate scandal.
If he is (they) ever made to appear in front of a fed icac i hope it’s in a town hall public invite held in Griffith.

Labor and Albo fulfilling their promise of helping Australians deal with rising living cost just as promised.

Yeah right haha, you didn't get woke in there with Airbus Albo.... Clutching at straws there. Remember the LNP don't have policies or a position as they are in opposition. Not much difference really from when were in government....

If ICAC investigate Watergate, they could be off to jail .... In a fair world if the same rules applied to them as you or I.

labor, after resisting an icac for years and years... have finally conceded... have made significant political capital out of it... and are now squirming and secret-ing it up...

"...Anthony Albanese has been blasted over a “big mistake” in his federal watchdog plan, with one group issuing a stern warning to the PM.

Long-awaited legislation to create a National Anti-Corruption Commission has been introduced to parliament but the government has been criticised for not making hearings public, unless in “exceptional circumstances”..."

"...“The default position is that hearings will be held in private.”..."

"...Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambie said it was well past time for an anti-corruption and integrity commission.

“There’s no public trust in politicians out there, and they need to be held accountable like every other Australian,” she said..."

the lamb, dead right again, an in secret icac will do nothing to restore trust at all...

"...Dr Haines said the work was not done yet.

“We’ll be doing out best to make sure that this anti-corruption commission is the very, very best it can be,” she said.

“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. We plan to get it right.”"

once in a generation alright... because a whole generation of politicians have lied borrowed and stolen from the public, because the icac is a whole generation late...

let's hope the independents can pull labor into line, ...because it sure seeming labor only want to get it 'right' for themselves...

If Labor do not set up a proper ICAC, many will be very pissed off, myself included. Election losing decision if they don't get it right, even if that means some in the party get done. If they reach agreement with LNP, ya know it is a hoax....

Not sure how you aren’t 100% certain the whole “ALP are the good guys” is a stitch-up hoax by now anyway?

Between the mass immigration, the tax cuts, the environmental destruction, the aiding the gas cartel etc etc…..how could you possibly still have an inkling of faith ? They hate you. You’re a cow to be milked until it’s dry and then sent to the butchers.

The ALP: “Triggered” when someone says something unpleasant but all cool and good with the plan to run Australians into the dirt in very real terms such as destruction of the environment , living standards and hope for the future. Nice one.

What do you suggest? Serious question.
Can point out negatives easily enough, but not much in offering solutions. ALP flawed, of course, but a lot better than LNP for ordinary Australians.
Bit hyperbolic to be say they hate you. Most are just normal people doing their best as they see it, and that's both sides of politics, of course there are exceptions to this as there are in any job/ vocation.

Same thing I suggested before the election: Do anything possible to keep either of the major parties out of power. They actively work against the Australian population and need to be consigned to the scrap heap of history.

Like most (all?) things you make "pronouncements from high" on Sippy your simplistic position rarely (ever?) matches the exceedingly complex nature of the issue at hand.

There would be good and valid legal reasons to have/not have public ICAC hearings (note its a hearing not a court of law) BUT what I'm looking for is sensible public policy, based on expert advice, that strikes the right balance.

At this moment we are yet to hear all the pros, cons, what ifs, what fors and what abouts from the legal experts so I'm reserving judgement but carry on Sippy ...

Everything they’ve done, every action they’ve taken confirms this to be true. Continue to deny it if you want but it just makes you come across as a bit thick.

Into a looming depression theyre mass importing foreign wage slaves to push down wages and make for less secure employment , make housing even more unaffordable and unavailable and to push up emissions and utterly fuck the environment.
On top of all this they’re fellating the gas and coal cartels into the final ruination of our manufacturing sector, pushing utility costs through the roof and in doing so adding several inflation points despite our country owning the cheapest and most extensive energy sources on Earth….all whilst funneling trillions of dollars into the hands of our strategic enemy.

Then there’s the backpedaling towards a useless corruption commission.

But sure bloke…it’s all conspiracy theory and self flagellation when someone points these facts out.

I’m all for public hearings but they are just hearings not a court of law. If in a hearing , it is recommended that person x be prosecuted in a court of law because of what was uncovered , would it be difficult to select a jury that hasn’t been prejudiced by the initial public hearing ? I’m no legal eagle and do understand that maybe a jury won’t be used . I thought only cases that weren’t in the publics interest would be private, is this correct ?

You had a chance to engage in nuanced discussion and you bleated about how the opinions of others were conspiracy theory flagellation . Did you add anything nuanced or otherwise …no. Do you ever add anything beyond nondescript rubbishing of the opinions of others…no.

You were expressly asked what action ALP has taken that contradicts the idea that they are a bunch of safe-space corporate enablers and you ignored it to concentrate on your usual passive aggressive dribble.

Yawn

Regardless if all hearings are public or not the positives are that it’s an independent body , government doesn’t get to choose who and what is investigated and everyone is on notice, not just the politicians. Leppington triangle deals might be thought twice about . Surely all findings from hearings will be published.

If there is such thing as normal you are it (although most would enjoy an odd beer or wine), but you would be in the majority.

It's a very small minority that have views of "wanting blood" for anyone no matter what side of politics you are on.

Most people right now are thinking more about things like rising living cost, price of petrol, interest rates etc
