With the possibility of an early Federal election the voters of the Northern Rivers, before deciding, need to seriously consider the appalling record of Ministerial accountability, allegations of rorting, corruption, sexual misconduct and self-indulgence displayed by this Lib/Nat government.
2015 – Bronwyn Bishop’s infamous misuse of publicly funded helicopters, (resigned); 2017 – Susan Ley had an affliction for taxpayer-funded trips to the Gold Coast to buy luxury apartments, (resigned). 2018 – Stuart Robert (responsible for Australia’s third-rate internet service, and the illegal robodebt, amongst other indiscretions), had to repay $38,000 he rorted taxpayers for home internet bills (not penalised). 2020 – Angus Taylor’s office sent the Daily Telegraph a fraudulent document about Clover Moore, then refused to be interviewed by the AFP, (not penalised).
Michaelia Cash also refused to cooperate with the AFP following the raid on offices of the AWU. Over allegations of leaking documents (not penalised). Bridget McKenzie took the fall for the sports rorts fiasco after Morrison, as usual, denied any knowledge despite over 100 emails being exchanged between their offices (resigned). LNP MP George Christensen was warned by the AFP that he could be vulnerable to blackmail after at least 28 trips to red-light districts in Manilla (not penalised). Craig Kelly, Christian Porter, Allan Tudge, Andrew Laming, some facing allegations of serious sexual misconduct (all still MP’s): When is enough enough?
