The South Korean miner that really cashed in under Barry O’Farrell

There are plenty of stories of failure in the ICAC hearings -- but what about the companies who did well under the NSW government?

For all the skullduggery being revealed at the New South Wales Independent Commission Against Corruption, Liberal Party donor Australian Water Holdings did not succeed in getting up its coveted $1 billion public-private partnership to deliver water infrastructure in Sydney’s north-west. And former billionaire Nathan Tinkler did not succeed in getting up his own $2 billion coal loader at Mayfield in Newcastle.

    Thankfully, the photo will come to haunt all of the grinning idiots (and their party) is the coming year, particularly leading up to the election.
    I know many could write an advertising campaign in opposition to the election of such imposters.
    Never trust a politician who wears a t-shirt expressing a environmental stand unless it is worn by a Greens candidate (the only party in NSW politics with integiry it appears).
    All going well, Citizen O’Farrell will have another day (or several) in ICAC explaining the content of this article. A pox on all of them!

    ICAC – the gift that keeps on giving.

    How about a permanent ICAC tribunal to keep an eye on the relationship between the political gatekeepers and the spoils of office?

    Of course there will never be… just whishing. Silly me.

    Pass the popcorn, folks… ICAC’s the best show in town.

    My constant joy is that ICAC snags far more tories than anyone else, despite being set up by Chief Allegator of the 80s Greiner specifically to hunt the Nifty & his mates for their scandalrillos.
    Could be a reason for that, apart from not taking Joh’s axiom, “never set up an enquiry until you know the result”.
