They Just Don’t Care!

Where are the protests about corruption in the Northern Territory? Where are the angry mobs with placards chanting in the streets?

Nothing but silence, not a peep.

Territorians are turning out to be cretins of the highest order when it comes to fighting corruption. Talk about do nothings.

The Trust challenges the people of the Northern Territory to do something about corruption. This could include:

  1. Holding a public rally
  2. Complaining to your local member of the NT Legislative Assembly
  3. Contacting ICAC to report corruption
  4. Contacting the media

The Trust believes that ICAC Commissioner Michael Riches is turning people off reporting corruption. Riches is making people believe that no action will be taken except to those who report corruption.

Turning A Blind Eye To Corruption

It was Nazi war leader Albert Speer who came up with excuse that he should have known but did not know, Speer also stated that he turned his back on things he did not know. Quite amazing but Speer managed to convince a majority of judges at the Nuremberg war crimes trials that he was not so bad and was therefore not sentenced to death.

We do not like to use references to war criminals. However the Speer defence of not knowing when he should have and turning his back on things he should have known almost fits perfectly with the way Michael Riches is operating ICAC.

It seems that Riches is turning his back on corruption, that he is selecting what he knows and does not know. He hardly inspires confidence to any would-be whistleblower.

From the perspective of The Trust it would appear that Riches is diluting the ICAC, making it weaker. Is he doing the bidding of politicians such as Michael Gunner?


NT Corruption Hotline – Size Matters!

NT ICAC: Hello how can we help you?

Whistleblower: I want to report some corruption.

NT ICAC: Can you place a dollar value on the level of corruption?

Whistleblower: Ah, maybe $50,000.

NT ICAC: Commissioner Riches has thresholds for corruption. $50,000 is simply too small. And because $50,000 does not reach the threshold amount ICAC now has to report you to your line manager. Is there anything else I can help you with?


Stop Whinging About Vaccination And Man The Barricades Against Corruption

Trust members are sick and tired of reading and hearing about the “sooks” who refuse to get vaccinated. Some of these idiots have made death threats to politicians over the issue of vaccination. We hope that are sent prison and receive another type of injection!

All this energy used to fight vaccination would be better placed in the fight against real corruption.
