Tips and rumours

AFP deployment untrained and inexperienced ... clouds over Telstra job losses ... Lachlan shown the door at News Corp ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

International Deployment Group not as it seems. The Australian Federal Police are in Ukraine at the moment attempting to secure the crash site of downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, but we hear that all is not well with the AFP and the deployed forces:

"The AFP members deployed to Europe are not International Deployment Group (IDG) members as reported. The IDG are not to be used for this deployment, rather members from the wider AFP, even though these members are neither experienced nor trained for overseas deployments. The IDG is falling into disrepair due to budget cuts and can not fulfill its mandate. The IDG is not well thought of by some in the AFP Executive and is being actively undermined."
