John Menadue. Liberal Party misuse of Royal Commissions.

Dyson Heydon is in the news again. 

Several weeks ago he appeared to question the credibility of Bill Shorten as a witness before the Trade Union Royal Commission. He also had unusual things to say about the credibility of Julia Gillard when she appeared before the Commission. 

See below a repost of an article on the Liberal Party and royal commissions.

With the Abbott Government there is a pattern of using Royal Commissions to attack former and current ALP leaders. See the links below to two earlier posts on the subject.

What we really need is a Royal Commission into billions of dollars of tax avoidance by major companies operating in Australia. They are avoiding proper scrutiny.

John Menadue.

The Royal Commission into the Home Insulation Program – a ‘dog’s breakfast’.

What a remarkable thing to say!


John Menadue is the publisher of Pearls & Irritations. He has had a distinguished career both in the private sector and in the Public Service.
