AU­DIT NEEDED TO PROVE IN­TEGRITY

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION OURS & YOURS -

The sum­ma­tion of the Turn­bull govern­ment by Peta Credlin (“So glad you’re hav­ing such fun”, 5/11) can­not be dis­missed lightly. PM Turn­bull’s con­tin­ued poor judg­ment is now, with­out dis­pute, trans­par­ent.

As pointed out by Ms Credlin, “Malcolm Turn­bull has done his lawyerly best to make this is­sue (dual cit­i­zen­ship) seem com­pli­cated but it isn’t that hard.”

We teach our chil­dren not to be lazy and to fol­low the rules as in­structed or there would be neg­a­tive con­se­quences for non-com­pli­ance.

Again, Ms Credlin sets out a se­quence of very sim­ple in­struc­tions which need to be fol­lowed to clearly ver­ify a per­son’s cit­i­zen­ship be­fore nom­i­nat­ing for Par­lia­ment. Game, set and match! No amount of Turn­bull’s waf­fle and spin will negate the need for a full au­dit to bring all par­lia­men­tar­i­ans to ac­count for their per­sonal re­spon­si­bil­ity to the Con­sti­tu­tion on be­half of the Aus­tralian peo­ple.

C’mon, Prime Min­is­ter, show us the fun you are hav­ing while we wait for a glimpse of in­tegrity emit­ting from those who call them­selves lead­ers.
