Corruption in NSW

 Quentin Dempster, host of 7.30 NSW.

The Friday night state based editions of the ABC's current affairs show are rebroadcast at various times. I have the digital recorder set to permanently record the NSW edition. Given the astonishing corruption allegations in NSW this week, I think this week's edition of  7.30 NSW will be a cracker.

ABC News 24, Saturday morning, 6.00 o'clock Eastern Australian Summer Time. Set your recorder and if the matter is covered, prepared to be left with your jaw hanging low by the sheer amounts of money. If the allegations are true, the people concerned should spend long stretches in gaol.

    Ah - move over NSW, the stuff coming out of Parliament here in Qld, pre-"Can-do" and now with "Can-do" and his motley mob - already two Ministers have got the axe, plus advisors -
    (family connections!!!), department heads.
    Politics here in Australia has become a very 'grubby' game.
    As for an answer??? Well I suppose we could shoot them all and try to then get a better batch??? Imprisonment still costs we, tax-payers, money!

    1. Colin, I think Newman must owe a lot of favours. It would all be more under the spotlight were it not for NSW. Corruption should not happen in Australia.

    2. Andrew - I think you mean "more IN the spotlight were it not for NSW"?
      The local rag here, the Courier Mail, has a (not sure how to put it) - but like a "white board" map of our lot and how the connections are and worked. See if you can get a copy of the Brisbane daily and work it out for me!
      I did add some more, but just deleted it. There is an obvious connection, and you don't have to be Albert Einstein!
      The quicker this corruption and paying back stops, plus political bickering stops, then we may get a good Government.
      Victor is right - "I want to get off" - but to where??????

    3. Colin, I would be hunting from a helicopter, so under the spotlight. I will take a look at the 'esteemed' Courier Mail.

    1. Vitor, it never seems to stop, does it. Maybe the Liberals are less corrupt? Or smarter at keeping it quiet.

  5. Immoral perhaps, but was it 'illegal'??? Sadly, your exchange above with FruitCake just highlights the real problem.

    1. I don't know Red, but I think there will be some nasty fall out for some people. The people have been named and shamed, which as you will see, is becoming a theme of mine.
