140210 My Guardian Comment to Bill Shorten demands Coalition sets up police taskforce
Opposition leader says police could act more quickly than a royal commission to investigate claims of union corruption
Lenore Taylor, political editor
My words to another commentor
It stands to reason, then, that the 'left' should go about calling for a much wider and deeper inquiry into things like 'capitalism' 'free markets' 'corporate links to government' corporations [aka, the auto industries, and all large employers] blackmailing governments for support and other benefits, etc?
Then, if the 'left' are still anywhere near onside with 'The Workers', they'd also call for a police inquiry, with the same powers as those Shorten is lobbying for, into our most debilitating system of land ownership and distribution - aka the real estate industry. Aka, the offshore land owners of Britain and other 'lords of ----'.
Were such a public and proper police investigation to get to the facts, they would arrive at the same conclusion that ex-Treasury head, Ken Henry reached, in his 'Henry Tax Review' of 2008/2009, which determined, from scientific inquiry, that a 'National Land Tax' is, as John W Howard is quoted as calling, 'The Most Honest Tax', and would solve all issues leading the Battlers into doing corrupt deals to stay in the fight against the foreign landlords, and their right wing LNP type.
For Shorten and coy to NOT go to that measure, exposes him and his mob as, as corrupt and self-serving as the LNP.
Unions here, and the ALP, began in the late 1890s on that very same taxation issue.
