Summer Series – Keeping the Bastards Honest with Senator Rex Patrick [webinar series]

featuring Ebony Bennett and Bill Browne

Our summer podcast series brings you some of the best conversations from our webinars in 2021. This episode you’ll hear from Independent Senator Rex Patrick Rex about the huge gaps in Australia’s system of integrity and accountability mechanisms at the federal level.
This in-depth discussion covers everything from unnecessary government secrecy, Freedom of Information laws to the powers of the Senate to expose dodgy decisions and poor administration that the Government battles to keep hidden from the public.
This episode was recorded live on 21 July 2021 and things may have changed since recording.
