The political system in Australia devours more than its politicians. Political parties have the power to appoint people to positions of power They can also fire people.There is no requirement for this to be done in the interest of the people or the integrity of the institutions they're appointed to. The primary purpose of this is not in any way to enhance these organisations.It's pure to control them.
When the attorney general's secretary approached Gillian Triggs with the enticement of another position, to get her to vacate her current one. He did so with the endorsement of his boss and his bosses boss. This is the modus operandi. It's how to erode the integrity of important roles. Replace a sincerely dedicated person with one to act as window dressing. Fortunately, Gillian called their bluff and continues to do her job with distinction.
It makes me wonder how many Government agencies have been corrupted in this way.How often have the Abbotts and Brandis of #auspol got their way in the past? How often have they got their puppets into roles?What have they actually corrupted?
Little wonder they refuse to entertain a federal ICAC branch when the need for one is so blatantly required.The community knows it. The community wants it. Yet the politicians ignore the desires of those who elect them because they know many of their careers would be jeopardised, perhaps ended by its establishment.
Whilst the Australian Human Rights Commission's report is important as is the issue of the report. I fear the agenda of the attack on Gillian Triggs doesn't register with most people. The victims and their futures are lost in the politics.This comes at a huge price to both the children I speak of and to our nation's reputation abroad.This children asylum detention issue has been burning away for 20+
