Documentary on whistleblowers

"Law and Disorder" tonight on SBS television at 8.30 starts a three part documentary series exploring the dark world of the whistleblower in Australia. The first, on Andrew Wilkie and his disclosures about the intelligence concerning those weapons of mass destruction. Next week former Customs official, Allan Kessing, who features in the preview saying no government wants freedom of information, because it discloses incompetence or corruption. Particularly interesting on the day that Transparency International's latest Corruption Perceptions Index has Australia 8th on the least corrupt list, up one slot, but our whistleblower protection score couldn't be good.

New Zealand No 1- take a bow.
