Mr X vows to re­move gag or­ders for whistle­blow­ers

The Advertiser - - LETTERS -

Pay­ing or re­ward­ing whistle­blow­ers with money is fraught with dan­ger. Peo­ple should blow the whis­tle be­cause it is the right thing to do and they should be af­forded all nec­es­sary pro­tec­tion. KEVIN So whistle­blow­ers about waste­ful spend­ing would be en­ti­tled to more waste­ful spend­ing by giv­ing them com­pen­sa­tion. MARK I won­der does this pro­tec­tion go to those who would speak against Mr X sheep herder? ROSE­MARY Port En­field Coun­cil is hope­less and hap­less. Let’s start there. DAVID An­other ex­am­ple of “look at what I say, not what I do”. As for se­crecy, why doesn’t SA Best come clean on which party it will sup­port to form gov­ern­ment? NICHOLAS Scary think­ing about this pa­thetic lit­tle mi­cro­phone chaser run­ning SA with Jay. MAR­TIN And this will do what for our econ­omy? PETER Noth­ing will hap­pen, all talk and spin. Re­fer to pok­ies. SHOP I am still wait­ing for Nick to keep his prom­ise to get rid of the pok­ies. BOB It sounds like a great idea, but with the way peo­ple of all ages carry on in so­ci­ety nowa­days, how could you pos­si­bly have 100 per cent faith in any sort of pro­tec­tion? KATE Whistle­blow­ers who are gen­uine and re­port mat­ters via the cor­rect chan­nel should be hailed as he­roes. K Mr X is only in­ter­ested in serv­ing him­self. Any­one trust­ing this guy is ask­ing for trou­ble WAYNE A recipe for dis­as­ter. JIL­LIAN
