The Australian’s Editor-at-Large Paul Kelly says the Morrison government has not handled the debate over a federal integrity commission well.
“And essentially they haven’t wanted to fight on the issue because their heart is not really in this commission,” Mr Kelly told Sky News host Peta Credlin.
“But the fact of the matter is that there are very different models on display, and we saw, finally, Scott Morrison taking a stand today, campaigning against the Labor model which is very much based on the NSW ICAC model.
“Now we know that there are serious doubts and problems with that model.”
It comes after Liberal MP Bridget Archer broke ranks to back the push to establish a federal anti-corruption commission.
