CREDLIN/LOGHNANE/HIGGINSON

Yes, you must tire of my pieces on the Credlin saga...described as a command and control freak...Abbotts Rasputin! And worse.

And my piece last year on the serious conflict of interest in her and Loughnane, husband and wife, holding next to the PM, two very senior roles with the Government and the Liberal party. Nasty!

Now poor old Phil Higginson spits the dummy. I'm not sympathetic to him. He's been in the role for over three years. Now he's discovered what was bleeding obvious in 2012... THERE IS A MASSIVE CONFLICT OF INTEREST HERE GUYS!

I was close to the scene as then Lib party President Alan Stockdale stumbled around in choosing the new Federal Treasurer. Abbott told him it was to be Higginson, from his electorate and local Abbott election fundraiser. Higginson is arrogant, oldy worldly, no good interstate contacts. I helped him meet for funds with the mining industry( yes Clive, Peter Bond, Gina et al), and others. He and Loughnane were close collaborators on all things money...no glitches seen there. Maybe after all that he has good reasons as Loughnane holds info very tightly. And if Higginson had the problems with Credlin the MPs have, it's very understandable.

But a lot of the Higginson bombshell has a lot to do with him just not getting the money in! And finding scapegoats.

But he was a CAPTAINS CALL!!!

Oh dear. Bring on the clowns.

GOVERNMENT NEEDS SINODINOS NOW!

The ICAC HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL, TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT OF POLITICIANS GOOD AND BAD. WE RATE ARTHUR SINODINOS AS ONE OF THE FEW, IF ONLY ONE, OF THE GOOD.

The Hon. Senetor Arthur Sinodinos

The thinness of the Governments ministerial talent is seen by our ratings on this home page. The biggest casualty has been the Treasury and Finance portfolios. Whilst Finance Minister Mathias Cormann is solid as Finance Minister he has had to temporarily absorb the Assistant Secretary, Treasury, post of Sinodinos. A big extra workload. And experienced treasury, budgetary and political knowledge is lost by the Sinodinos sidelining.

Finance Minister Mathias Cormann

It's a huge loss to Treasurer Joe Hockey ( much more than he would admit ), and to the Federal Ministry. Sinodinos had legendary political skills when running Prime Minister Howards office. He came from Treasury. He left Howard after 10 years and got into banking with NAB. He is honed in politics, finance and bureaucracy.


Treasurer Joe Hockey

At a critical time when they need to be on the front foot with a super experienced team the Government have two men in Hockey and Cormann who are politicians but not schooled in strategic treasury or finance outcomes.

ICAC have taken many justifiable scalps...Obeid, Roozendaal, the Central Coast Liberals, OFarrell(totally deserving of his fate after such a pathetic attempt at defence ), but this media hopes for Australia's sake that the talented Arthur Sinodinos resumes his portfolio. In fact we think the wounded Joe Hockey should be shifted to health, or whatever, and give treasury and Finance to Cormann and Sinodinos!
