The impartiality of a Royal Commissioner must be beyond reproach. Dyson Heydon heads the Royal Commission into Trade Unions. It has been disclosed that he was to be a speaker at a Liberal Party fund raiser bringing his impartiality into grave doubt. He has no choice but to resign and wind up the Commission.
It was well know when the Prime Minister appointed him that he had strong connections to the Liberal Party and was yet another captain’s pick. Even John Howard at the time said that Royal Commissions of this sort were a bad idea adding that they could come back to bite you. How prophetic he was.
And it was costing $80 million of our money.
Dyson Heydon was another captain’s pick, by the way.
