Beyond Representative Government

Ted Mack, MHR

Below are some comments from Ted Mack who had real creditablity in Australian politics

"There are many arguments against open government at all levels, but secrecy is a formula for corruption and all too often provides for avoidance of responsibility and accountability.

Openness is the only real defence.

Corruption scandals are regular occurrences in governments throughout the world, and secrecy is always the essential ingredient.

There is in fact no such thing as a closed meeting or secret decision-making.

The "smart money" always finds out.

Only the public is kept in the dark."
