On the issues of CSG , I would support the two independants strongly...It's the reason they were elected in the first place......on the NSW corruption issue , its obvious Obied is an evil crook and should be dealt with severely , but the rightwing media will milk this for all it's worth , since their other tactics have failed so miserably...Obieds influence extended through both sides of politics and is still influencing the O'Farrel government at present. Obied made many millions from this corrupt deal , and who paid the money?.....the CSG and energy companies...

Yes but Its the NSW Labor Government that did the deals that the corruption inquiry is investigating. Obeid is simply what Gordon Nuttal was in Qld! Hes a Corrupt politician and needs to be jailed. Nuttal got more than 10 years and the money that changed hand was a fraction compared to what Obeids have scammed from mining companies. What has Obeid got to do with O'Farrel who was in opposition when Obeid did this corruption? I mean when you look at Obeid, Thompson, Nuttal, its obvious that Labor is 'rotten to the core' and needs a complete purge out to get rid of the people who are stuffing up the Labor party! Gillard and her mates in the Labors leadership are included in this list to be purged out. Only the grassroots Labor members can fix Labors problems. The Labor factions have STUFFED the Australian Labor Party! When Labor is wiped out of Government in 2013 I hope a leader is elected for Labor who will fix its problems and make the factions who are wrecking the party redundant! The political power needs to be handed back to grassroots members of Labor. Its the only way to find a leader who can get Labor back on top again.

Incorrect Lowchair...the investigation is into the affairs of certain MP's , who may or may not be involved in the land sale scam. It does does not implicate the government in general. I realise you wish it did , but it doesn't. It's time for you to grow up and wait for court proceedings to begin , before making any judgements from the peanut gallery cheap seats......(lol)
