    While the cost of the Commission of Inquiry more than doubled to $1.1 million from $450,000. We are going to need a CoI into the CoI. MP’s are out of control and the electorate is at fault. Civil servants advise and MP’s/Ministers decide while the taxpayer gets fleeced. Parties are not the problem the “System” is the problem that allows MP’s to behave as tyrants.
