The Prime Minister has announced a Royal Commission into the banks but do I have confidence in it? No.
Senator Cash, Minister O’Dwyer and Malcolm Turnbull were all given the “BOT Book” (Book of ‘truth’ that was tabled at the Senate Inquiry in Feb 2016); it had all the evidence of the atrocities (corporate manslaughter) that ANZ/PCL/Landmark performed and carried out on our Rural Primary Producers from December 2009 – to current times.
The ANZ Bank over the last couple of years only, has been forced to settle with farmers due to their own admissions of their misconduct and at times illegal actions. Meanwhile, the PM sits back and procrastinates and allows the banks to write their own Terms of References for the Royal Commission???
Terms which will deliver results have already been done by involved land producers who can relate to the activities of the ANZ/PCL/Landmark and Ors. The PM has sat on these wonderful Terms of Reference for well over a year!
I support these Terms and not the ‘Turnbull/Bank terms’ because they were construed by a broad spectrum of affected and aggrieved farmers whilst I was in Parliament!
