“The AFP assessment of this matter identified there is no evidence to indicate the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction was involved in falsifying information,” an AFP spokesperson said. “The low level of harm and the apology made by the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction to the Lord Mayor of Sydney, along with the significant level of resources required to investigate were also factored into the decision not to pursue this matter.

On orders from Peter Dutton. The corruption in this new office staggers belief.

If someone on Centrelink makes a simple mistake, all hell breaks loose. And minister after minister takes public administration to the edge of ethical and good public administration, and we have to accept it as business as usual. I am disgusted! FederalICAC

Surprise Surprise

Sad that everywhere you turn, the LNP seem to be embroiled in some form of corruption.

Angus Taylor has my full support!
