Noise getting louder - pollies listening?

Not a peep out of our political leaders so far on how they will do something to improve ministerial accountability and transparency in government.

In "Culture of secrecy serves itself, not us", Spencer Zifcak of La Trobe University and Victor Perton, former education spokesman for the Victorian Liberal Party, echo two former Prime Ministers in pointing out that our accountability systems are way behind comparable countries; that a culture of openness needs to permeate FOI administration; and the conclusive certificates should be abolished.
