No, that's exactly what it is! This is state-sanctioned money laundering. It is the House of Representatives in the Australian parliament ensuring that banned donors in some jurisdictions can wash their money through the federal party. It is every bit as much money laundering as any other form of money laundering that goes on in this country. Frankly, if no-one else will look at it, AUSTRAC should have a look at it, because that's what it is. I can't believe the government and the opposition are conspiring—they're both party to this—to pass a law to have state-sanctioned money laundering.
