|Trade minister Steven Ciobo|
Ciobo said businesses and other organisations who invited politicians were “taking the opportunity to showcase themselves there, to take the time to have a conversation in relation to important matters”."Showcase"? WTF is he talking about? A business buying a politician's time to get in their ear? Democracy for sale? What about the average punter? When do they have an opportunity to be heard?
“Absolutely [it] is work-related and that’s the reason why.” The Guardian
It shows the level of stinking cesspool corruption going on in this gov. Ciobo is talking about a ticket gifted to him by the National Australia Bank in 2013. Presumably (according to him) so the bank could "showcase" itself to him.
What about a royal commission into the banks then?
