Letter to the Editor
Townsville Bulletin- Alarm at Reef conflict claims 30.10.13. It is blatantly obvious to even those who do not follow politics that a ‘conflict of interest’ exists on the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, where two members of the GBRMPA board have an interest financially in GBRMPA policy, as displayed brilliantly on the ABC program 7.30 29.10.13.
The ruling AWU Right wing faction of the ALP and its shady deals are slowly but surely over time being exposed. The dodgy AWU network extends its tentacles far and wide, with this latest exposure linked to the Obeid family in NSW whose principle is currently, again, before the ICAC commission of corruption in NSW. Queensland conducted an inquiry many years ago into the Qld ALP, it was known as the Shepherdson Inquiry, and also exposed the Right wing AWU faction at that time, leading to two Queensland State politicians resigning, and if memory serves me correctly two or three other members of this faction facing charges, one on electoral fraud?
The Right wing AWU faction is like a cancer within the ALP, whose involvement in the recent election of a federal Opposition leader cannot be understated. Personally I’d like to see a full and frank audit of the ALP and its ‘flesh and blood’ members so positions like appointments to government boards so the public can have confidence in those such appointments, instead of the usual public comment “just another job for the boys.”
