Schapelle Corby - So Kevin Rudd, how much cash is the Australian Labor Party getting from Macquarie Bank THIS time?
How much cash is the Australian Labor Party getting from Macquarie Bank THIS time? Given the bank's 2012 Annual Report tells us they're paying the "Workers" party big bucks. Your Foreign Minister Bob Carr did pretty well out of them too - quote: "Macquarie Bank made a fortune out of his tollroad dealings in Sydney and he happily signed up for a reported $500,000 a year consultancy with the Millionaires’ Factory just three months after retiring as NSW premier in 2005." Crikey, 4 June 2012
So tell me Kev, how does that square with your latest anti-corruption drive? Did you know Macquarie Bank owned Sydney Airport Corporation when Schapelle flew? And here's the entire unsavoury background on their maximisation of profits, at the expense of aviation security - not forgetting of course (when you access that link), that their Director Ian Robert Chalmers was in a cocaine syndicate with the SAME baggage handlers who "Dealt" with Schapelle's luggage. Stinks, doesn't it?
Time to sweep out ALL the filth Kev, or just the bits no-one's paying you big bucks to ignore?
