The multimedia effort below clearly informs and wraps up a case study of what has sadly become the rule rather than the exception at ICAC. Its Big Kahunas and Chief Wing-pullers know what their cash cow acronym stands for:
INSIGNIFICANT CASES ARE CORE
ICAC chooses easy to digest missions, preferably with something salacious to meet their accomplices’ requirements – usually a cheep and nasty headline to impress the masses.
This is the reality. The solution isn’t to kill off the state’s nasty acronym – but rather, those who’ve overstayed the taxpayers’ welcome and contributed to the evolution of a rotten culture. But who’s going to do that? A federal anti-corruption commission perhaps?
Supervising the abused of state counterparts is yet another compelling reason for a federal watchdog.
Don’t call it “ICAC” though. It shouldn’t be lumbered with the ‘damaged goods’ of the NSW agency’s brand. In fact, the NSW Government should change its name to gauge its underperformance, undisguised by more prolific, effective and better supervised efforts by agencies of the same name*.
