The review of public sector accountability in Queensland by veteran public sector expert Peter Coaldrake -- forced on the Palaszczuk government by a string of integrity scandals -- reveals a poor system of accountability and transparency around lobbying in that state, and recommends some important reforms.

Problem is, the Queensland system is far more transparent than that of other states -- and light years ahead of the rotten system of accountability federally.

Coaldrake's commentary on lobbying in Queensland deserves extended quotation, because he sums up an Australia-wide problem.
