Scumbo cut out again

From the Guardian article

"At a higher level still, despite a review process that has been under way for more than a decade, the Australian government has stalled the process of bringing the nation’s laws up to international standards through changes that include adding lawyers and real estate agents to the list of people required to report suspicious transactions to Austrac.

There is no sign the Morrison government will take action any time soon, even though it has promised international authorities it will bring Australian regulations up to scratch."

That would be right on course to save his prime ministerial ambitions. 

Angus Taylor, imo, is a white collar criminal.

What crime has he committed?

Either he, or his office altered a government document.The City of Sydney council is a constituted local government authority.  Altering a statutory document, which this document was is, and then passing the document to the media ( Murdoch's Telegraph) all the while knowing it is altered my friend, is fraud. Clear and simple. 

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/dec/04/angus-taylor-says-he-has-point-of-contact-with-police-but-stays-silent-on-metadata

The letter that went to Moore on 30 September went out under the minister’s signature, and Taylor has already issued an unreserved apology to the lord mayor.

“It is now clear to me that the correspondence I sent you on 29 September 2019 included numbers that were not correct,” Taylor wrote to Moore. “Given this, I regret not clarifying those figures with you before writing, and relying on those figures in media commentary, I apologise unreservedly.”

Even if he didn't do it personally he is still responsible. The buck stops with him and Angus Taylor should step aside at a minimum. A resignation would better.

Agree.

He pulled a chair leg from his jacket, not exactly going in to have a civilised discussion.

What a douchebag, more proof that South Australia is the real deal when it comes to contenders for biggest shitehole on the planet. I agree the “guy” shouldn’t lose his job but getting off without some form of punishment is fkd.
