    Already ministers’ a decisions are little scrutinized by parliament, already some MPs and ministers seem to be for sale , already statutory bodies are stacked by relatives, overblown shell companies receive funds without tender or scrutiny. We are becoming a sleazy banana republic.

    A democratic surveillance state is an irreconcilable oxymoron – which brings us to the conundrum, who watches the watchers when they refuse to be answerable to any questions, accountable or transparent in any of their dealings.
    I am beginning to wonder what it was like in certain European countries in the 1930’s – those that were have sounded alarms about current political developments, rightly so

    The idea of guilty till you prove otherwise has been around for years if you are on welfare or a pensioner. Similarly the justice system is variable to the extreme gaol if you are black to guilty without a record to absolute guilt but can afford silk so not guilty.
    Perhaps we can look at metadata as a pre-crime investigation giving office-based canberra copper some overtime.???

    I believe there is meatadata backup, with a special section on the rubbish trucks where the rubbish of designated houses can be stored separately. for investigation.

    This all just sounds like Big Brother or even Communist China to me. Why indeed would our “beloved” “trustworthy” (??) so called COALition mob “need” to retain any of our internet etc information? Seems a bit bloody scary to me. But, it MUST be ok, because SloMo says it will all be ok? After all, if he has a go, he will get a go??
