On IBAC's report on Victorian Labor, Morrison's sermon, and much more.
JULY 23, 2022

This week, Scott Morrison haunted us from beyond the grave. First, the former prime minister warned churchgoers that putting their faith in government was a mistake (yikes!), then the Grattan Insitute laid bare just how much the Coalition abused its powers by methodically stacking boards with mates.

But corruption isn’t the domain of the Coalition alone. The Victorian Labor Party led by Daniel Andrews was found this week to be rotten to the core. As Bernard Keane writes, you may well ask, “But what about the Liberals?” Yet you don’t get to be selective about standards in public life.

And that’s only a slice of Crikey reporting this week. There’s plenty more below.

Have a great weekend,
