Rudd backs Fraser, Whitlam on minister responsibility inquiry

Quote from Herald Sun 12 November 2007

“But he said there were other problems, including the politicisation of the public service.

"The fate of heads of department are in the hands of the PM's Department and they can be dismissed in the flick of an eye," he said.

There had been a "destruction" of ministerial standards and there were no longer guidelines for ministers, their staff or department heads.

Mr Fraser and Mr Whitlam also warned about the erosion of the Freedom of Information Act, which was introduced by the Fraser government in 1982”.

The letter

This is a letter we must read and apply. Our next government must not emulate the previous worst ever one of John Winston Howard.
