It is extraordinary that the ABC news is calling Eddie Obeid as corrupt. He has not been convicted of anything. Our ABC is clearly confident that it won't be sued.
I can't recall how long ago I read or heard that the Obeid family owned the cafes at Circular Quay where we have eaten a few times, but it was years not months.
Happy face that all this is coming out at http://www.icac.nsw.gov.au/ but sad face that NSW has been so corrupt for so long.
Much thanks for the exposure must go to Sydney Morning Herald journalist Kate McCylmont. She is a tenacious and brave gem and she has not received a public gong yet afaik, and she should very soon.
Very sad face that this mostly happened under Labor Party watch. NSW Labor, and its controlling right wing. Labor's right wing has truly scary for a long time. Whatever will come out when a former and quite old NSW Labor Premier dies??? We will live in nifty times.
