Audio files of Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC) of Western Australia (WA) taped phone calls.

I do not think for a moment that infuence peddling on this scale is confined to Australia, I think Government in many places works like this but this is just a rare glimpse into that world of deals, fixes, mates and favours.
If you Google “Brian Burke wa premier” you will find much material explaining how this master lobbyist has wreaked havoc in the Western Australian Labor Government, leading to the resignations of several cabinet ministers in early 2007.
But just enjoy the audio linked above
