Politicians and Transparency

A tribute to PM Scott Morrison being interviewed by anchor Leigh Sales on ABC’s current affairs programme 7:30.

The word ‘transparent’ is used by politicians with careless abundance, along with ‘accountability’. Maybe when they say, “transparent” it means they have something to hide, but we know that anyway and “accountability” means that they will ‘take it on notice’ until they find someone else to blame.
