I know nuffin!

Senator Arthur Sinodinos seemed to have an attack of the Rumsfelds at the New South Wales anti corruption investigation when he proclaimed that he did not know what he did not know.

Can it be possibly true that Eddie Obeid pulled all the strings in New South Wales for many years and Bob Carr was the last NSW premier who actually ruled? Did Carr even rule? Can it be possibly true that there was massive corruption under Obeid's delegated rule?

The Rum Rebellion and it hasn't stopped since.

  1. I came across Bob Carr before he was Premier and then during...he is a very intelligent man and he would have known afterwards the situation - he got out at the right time that much was so clear...I have just returned from the Upper Hunter of NSW ...the people there are really angry re the Coal mining, the Coal seam gas mining and Obied and crew...

    1. MC, coal seam gas mining is something I am well aware of. It seems people power may be winning. The RNSH was a product of Carr's time. He, along with others, are hardly guiltless.

  2. Massive corruption? Probably. It is politics after all.

    1. Fortunately for you River, the smaller the city, the harder it is to get away with corruption on the scale that seems to have occurred in NSW.

  3. Questions, questions Andrew? As River says in politics you can never be sure about anything. I'm so looking forward to voting in our state elections next week..I would so like B and B to be gone! Barnett and Buswell aka the chair sniffer haha!

    1. Grace, Buswell rather shows that you can get away with anything in politics. Your election is being somewhat under reported in the east.

    2. I'm not worried what they think in the east Andrew, my angst is all about the west!

  4. Good heavens, what happened whilst I was away! How did Arthur Sinodinos end up in the ICAC investigation? I thought it was only grilling NSW Labor types this time around.

    1. Victor, when it comes to money making, they forget about politics.

  5. The smallness of a city just affects the size and scope of the corruption, not whether there is any or not!!!

    1. Red, at least in Australia, corruption is not part of our daily lives. We must always be vigilant.
