Dear Australian Building and Construction Commission,

I refer the ABCC to the following articles:

https://www.smh.com.au/opinion/institute...

https://www.crikey.com.au/2013/04/05/abb...

https://www.sbs.com.au/news/backers-to-h...

http://www.thepoliticalsword.com/posts.a...

which, on one view, tend to suggest that far right wing political lobby group, the Institute of Public Affairs, is a pro-paedophile organisation that actively engages in the financing of child rapists.

I can’t see anything on the Institute of Public Affairs’ website that indicates that the Institute of Public Affairs opposes acts of child rape. That being the case, and having regard to the Institute of Public Affairs’ policy manifesto more generally, it may be the case that the Institute of Public Affairs considers that acts of child rape are currently being practised inefficiently as a result of being overburdened by bureaucratic red and green tape and that the regulation of the marketplace for acts of child rape should be left to “invisible hand” of the free market (preferably so long as that “invisible hand” is attached to someone who is wealthy, caucasian and christian, but definitely not an environmentalist, public servant or trade unionist).

It is noteworthy that:
i) the Institute of Public Affairs is closely aligned with the Liberal Party; and
ii) the Institute of Public Affairs is the ideological and philosophical home of two of the most corrupt public servants in Australia’s history – Nigel Hadgkiss and John Lloyd – both being former Australian Building and Construction Commissioners and both being formally found to have acted illegally in public office by contravening the very same laws they were paid massive amounts of public monies to uphold and enforce (I’m not suggesting that Mr Lloyd/Mr Hadgkiss are sexually oriented towards children, I just think it’s notable that’s all).

Given that both Mr Hadgkiss and Mr Lloyd were politically appointed to the position of Australian Building and Construction Commissioner by the Liberal Government, and that both men are corrupt; pattern theory would tend to suggest that if a person has been politically appointed by the Liberal Party to the position of Australian Building and Construction Commissioner, there’s some likelihood that that person may also be corrupt.

In this podcast, produced and published by apparent paedophile lobby group, the Institute of Public Affairs: https://ipa.org.au/the-young-ipa-podcast... ; former Australian Building and Construction Commissioner and corrupt political appointee, John Lloyd (who has returned to the IPA, as a director, after his corrupt stint as Australian Public Service Commissioner) describes the latest Liberal party appointed Australian Building and Construction Commissioner, Stephen McBurney, as a “friend”.

Under the FOI Act, I seek access to email correspondence, falling between the period of 1 May 2018 to the date of this application, between Mr Stephen McBurney and his friend, Mr John Lloyd (including email documents sent by Ms McBurney to Mr Lloyd and email documents sent by Mr Lloyd to Mr McBurney).

Documents falling within the scope of my request can be quickly identified and retrieved by searching all items (including archived items) in Mr McBurney’s email account profile according to persons sent to, and received from.

There’s clearly a public interest in the content of communications between one former, corrupt, politically appointed Australian Building and Construction Commissioner/director of a pederast lobby group with the current politically appointed Australian Building and Construction Commissioner.
