NSW Parliment; a safe harbour for paedophiles?

An audit of internet usage has been conducted in the NSW Parliament. The audit has found that members of parliament used their computers to access suspected child pornography.

NSW MPs or their staff have allegedly visited child pornography sites on parliament house computers.

The revelation that nine sites featuring “young people of indeterminate age” were visited comes in an independent report into parliamentary internet use by Ernst & Young.

The report was commissioned by house speaker Richard Torbay and upper house president Amanda Fazio after an unauthorised audit by a parliamentary internet staffer found 35 sites visited between November last year and September this year appeared to contain adult related content. The Australian

After such a finding it is reasonable to expect that a further investigation would be underway followed by some disciplinary action. However such expectations turn out to be wishful thinking.

THE NSW Parliament will not discipline or even identify staff members or MPs who used the parliamentary computer system to access websites that contained ”sexually explicit images of young people”.

The Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Richard Torbay, and the President of the Legislative Council, Amanda Fazio, have declared the matter closed despite confirmation that nine inappropriate websites were accessed.

In a statement yesterday, they confirmed that advice from the Crown Solicitor was that there was ”no legal obligation to refer the information in the report to the NSW Police Force”. The Sydney Morning Herald

So there you have it. If you want to access inappropriate content and be protected, become a member of the New South Whales Parliament. When questionable content is found; no questions asked.

Although the term “Young People” doesn’t specifically mean children. The responsible thing to do would be to pass the matter onto the police. Not cover it up.

    Why believe coalition economic plan works without revitalize agriculture and manufacture industries??
    It’s all about power and money most Politicians and parties wanted above all and after all election?
    Just listen how Barry O'Farrell convincing voters: "People are our asset. They are our greatest wealth and they should be given the opportunity to pursue their dreams?" On the issue of economic management, Mr O'Farrell was asked what he thought was the state's greatest source of wealth, given NSW lacked a resources industry.

    When we look at what today’s shrinking industries, such of agriculture (34% of fruit and 19% of vegetables imported); manufacture (10.5% by 2005–6) destructed by John Howard’s coalition government.
    Will you then still believe Mr Barry O'Farrell’s coalition opposition announced positive and practical policies which will help revitalize agriculture and manufacture industries for create more sustainable jobs, and innovative export products?
    Remember, it’s not one person to construct or destruct the whole lots of industries, it’s the matter of whole political party/government?
    Will you also believe there were only 1-2 Politicians responding to this greatest “Healthy Las Vergas Broken Hill economy model”?
    Why the most Politicians do fail their own test in spend little brain work to revitalize agriculture and manufacture industries who with $1.65 million Tax payer’s money each annual spending for?
