Mr. Speaker, apparently there are other problems with the ship of state over there. The Prime Minister has developed a two tier ethical system, one for public office holders and another for his closest advisers.
A senior member of the Prime Minister's transition team, Mr. John Duffy, has left his job advising the Prime Minister and has now gone to work immediately to lobby the very government that he helped to set up.
We all know that public office holders and paid staff must wait one year before they can join a lobbying firm, but there is no waiting period for political staff.
Why does the Prime Minister hold his transition team to a lower ethical standard than a regular public servant?
