Blockchain is unhackable.
If all decisions were recorded on blockchain then it would be assumed that all conflicts of interest would be found out, and as a result corruption wouldn't happen.

Half the nations citizens are willing to do mates rates with their work skills for their friends, cash under the table...

It's no more their fault for being dodgy, than it is our fault for not demanding a system where they can't be corrupt.

What makes you think humans are inherently different whether they wear the clothes of a criminal or a business suit?

Hi Foxy,

The last line of defence for the scoundrel politician is; "I didn't do anything illegal." In the case of Berejiklian there are questions that require answers. I have been following the ICAC enquiry, and for starters the thing that needs clarification is the Louise Waterhouse land deal. The evidence is Waterhouse who owned land at Badgerys Creek (site of new airport) worth about $330 million. Waterhouse was having trouble with the state Planning Dept. Maguire arranged a "drop in" meeting with Berejiklian at Macquarie Street. Whether this un-official meeting lasted 2 minutes or 2 hours we don't know, but the evidence suggests it was asked of the Premier if "anything could be done" for Waterhouse in regards to the planning issues. Even if Berejiklian did nothing in that regard, she had a duty to disclose that approach. These so called drop in meetings arranged by Maguire with the Premier and other politicians and public servants for certain people are highly suspicious in themselves. I would say meetings you want to have where you don't want any evidence recorded. The other thing of concern is Berejiklian saying; "I didn't need to know about that". Angus Taylor the federal Liberal politician also has questions to answer regarding Waterhouse and the Badgerys Creek land. There in no doubt in my mind that we badly need a Federal ICAC, yet some Liberals and Nationals oppose it, why? Has Eddie Obeid joined the Coalition.

The NSW premier's guilt is as plain as the nose on her face.

on her face?"

Her nose isn't big. She just happens to have a
small head.

Besides opinions are like noses: everybody's got one,
but it usually has a couple of holes in it.
