Morrison Revealed as a “Buffoon”

Critics who labelled the New South Wales anti-corruption watchdog as a “kangaroo court” – a phrase used by the prime minister in his criticisms of the agency – were “buffoons” who were launching unfounded attacks, a parliamentary committee has heard. Independent Commission Against Corruption (Icac) commissioner Stephen Rushton told a parliamentary review that references to the body as a “kangaroo court” weren’t just misleading but were also untrue. People who made those comments were “buffoons”, he told the review into the annual reports of the Icac and the Inspector of the Icac. Rushton said the Icac had been in place for more than 30 years, exposing corruption and maintaining trust in public administration.
