Australians will continue to be at risk as long as this jerk is in charge of ASIO. Anyone who is appointed to a security position anywhere by Julie Bishop must present a clear and present danger.
A sigh of relief was heard around Canberra when former Director, David Irvine, departed the new billion dollar spook edifice. Irvine, a Kevin Rudd mate and appointee, was one of his more disastrous appointments.
It seems impossible but Bishop has gone one worse with Lewis who takes home over $5,000 a week plus, plus, plus all public service extra benefits the private sector could never justify.
Even middle management is earning (sorry wrong word) taking home in excess of the Prime Minister who takes home in excess of a US President. Top (sorry wrong word again) the brown-nosing senior executives who get appointed by Government mates receive salaries that have recently, and silently, risen over 70 per cent without a murmur from anyone.
I played golf once a week with senior ASIO blokes before terrorism was an issue and considered them a bunch of overpaid wankers who talked far too much for genuine sleuths.
But now the threat of Islam has reared its head it is frightening as to who heads ASIO… which is only one of seven uselessly fragmented security Agencies that all seem to think competing for budget allocation is a far more important competitive task than any half-arsed clandestine operation.
After all, ASIO couldn’t even build their new Parkes monument without the Chinese stealing blueprints of the internal wiring. This required the internal structure to be gutted and rebuilt. And I’m pretty sure the cost wasn’t deducted from any pay packet.
Rudd’s appointment to head ASIO, Irvine, said that,
…we must not blame Islam because we need Muslims to dob in their kids. (WTF?)
The Bishop appointment to head ASIO, Lewis, said that,
…refugees and terrorism have no correlation. (WTF again?)
Bloody hell, almost $40 billion a year is spent on these fools when the cost of a well-trained Alsatian sniffer dog would be money better spent.
The future appears bloody bleak for Canberran governance when there is not a cigarette paper between the opposing Parties. Both leaders have succumbed to the delights of high office in return for low performance without principle.
There is no Horatius Cocles, only Snoopy, at the bridge to defend us from the incoming assassins.
