I have read some rubbish from the ABC but this is right up there on a short-list of the very worst. Completely ignoring the years of corruption in NSW Labor.
Just Google the Wollongong planning scandal that was making headlines in 2008 exactly when the Bylong coal corrupt dealings were in gestation – dealings that for months have been exposed at ICAC.
