This is the twisted logic that Labor and the Unions are using to attack the Royal Commission:
- the Commission is investigating widespread criminality and corruption in trade unions
- the unions are (by their own choice) aligned with Labor, and vice versa
- hence the commission is ‘political’
- therefore, any sign of connection to the Liberals in the commissioner, no matter how trivial or irrelevant, is therefore evidence of ‘bias’
- unions escape justice once again.
