Will a Federal ICAC Improve Politicians’ Reputations? – THINK AGAIN!

Interesting view towards establishing a Federal ICAC being expressed by federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten today. He believes that a Federal ICAC would help fix the image of politicians and help rid the public perception that they are only in it for themselves.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The more that a Federal ICAC reveals, the less trust the public will have in our public institutions, including our parliamentarians.

The real reason a Federal ICAC should be established is not to stop the petty rorts that politicians avail themselves, but rather to unearth deep corruption in public institutions and the parliamentary process.

The petty rorts will always continue as public figures can’t help themselves.

So yes bring on a Federal ICAC.
