"Advice that was sought prior to a review being undertaken—how that could conceivably impinge upon people's privacy just seems like an odd argument to make, doesn't it?"
I know about this, as it was my FOI being discussed.
First a recap.
Morrison was asked a Q about backgrounding by his media team in #QT last year (25 March 2021).

Thread: Today I want to talk about remarkable coincidences. #AUKUS
I decided to look up the Australian Govt's Submarine Advisory Committee. It was active once so I thought I see if it still was.
Yep it is active and new members were appointed in May 2021....strange.
Strange that I didn't see a press release about these appointments.
Even stranger when last time around some members were getting $600+K to sit on it.
But there it is, govt directory 👇 says SAC had 3 good folks recently appointed to it.
Hey Senator Bragg, I've noticed you've recently got a few gifts/donations from Churchill Advisory Pty Ltd - a registered lobbyist at Fed govt/NSW govt levels.
What's the go?
I couldn't help but notice that Churchill Advsiory has a number of financial and technology clients.
I couldn't help but notice that Senator Bragg chairs the Senate Select C'tee on Fin Tech and Regulatory Tech.

THREAD: COVID-19 COMMISSION - Gimme a B, Gimme a C, Gimme a G
The almost unaccountable Covid19 Commission really needs some more scrutiny.
Take the $0.5m tender it awarded to Boston Consulting Group (BCG) for a month’s work of “business administration” services. @murraywatt raised it in the sen ctee & the response by the dep CEO of the Commission was enlightening.
BCG got the gig because they did pro bono work for the Covid19 Commission, and Nev and his mates decided they should then get paid. Don’t believe me, read the transcript:

Re: $150m #sportsrorts female change room program exposed by the Guardian today.
This program is actually funded by Dept of Infrastructure, not Dept of Health where the other #sportsrorts program, nominally overseen by Bridget McKenzie, was funded.
This implicates both the PM and Deputy PM as being part of the rorts. The PM announced this program on 30 March -so he knew all about it.
In May 2019, Morrison won an unlikely election victory, significantly propelled to office by the campaign trickery of Crosby Textor (CT).
CT not only operate as dark arts masters for the LNP and UK Tories, they also run traditional lobbying services.
This includes cutting backroom deals etc and have tentacles in many other countries…..including very recently in India.
Meet John....John Auer. John is a farmer from Tubbut in Vic, near the NSW border. We can't show you John's face...oh hang on a sec we can.
When John's not busy farming he's plotting to kill Australia's native wildlife,especially eagles.
You see John is the "mastermind" behind the deaths of at least 406 wedge tailed eagles over the period 2016-18. John, coached his farm hand, Murray Silvester, on how to poison the majestic raptors. The full stories are here: theage.com.au/national/victo…

Seems an appropriate day to remind folks about the dirty tricks of Tim Wilson and Geoff Wilson of Wilson Asset Management (WAM) re: franking credits.
They colluded to set up the stoptheretirementtax website.
Tim, at the time was chair of Standing C'ttee on Economics.
Tim and Geoff are distantly related, and Tim has investments with WAM.
Tim hopped into bed with a firm he had investments in to create a website that opposed Labor's policy. WAM also opposed Labor's policy.
* The international man of mystery - Alexander Downer
* The "lizard of Oz" pollster - Lynton Crosby

One of the directors of the Institute of Economic Affairs is Michael Hintze. A major donor to the LNP here, and linked as a business associate of the Taylor family.
Revealed: top UK thinktank spent decades undermining climate science theguardian.com/environment/20…
Hintze has been a director since 2005. He heads up hedge funds, and runs a farming operation called MH Premium Farms. MHPF operations in Australia are managed by Growth Farms, in which the Taylors have a financial interest.

#grassgate Stuart Burge, who gave the go ahead for Jam Land (a company co-owned by the Taylors - Angus, Richard, Duncan and Bronnie et al), to spray herbicide on endangered grasslands is the same person NSW Farmers used to inform the EPBC review.
Stuart Burge, was also engaged and no doubt paid to produce this report. But who paid him? As it turns out Burge was engaged by Monaro Farming Systems (MFS). MFS is chaired by Richard Taylor. MFS are collaborating with NSW Farmers.

The company Jamland Pty Ltd is at the centre of the #grassgate allegations. Once you strip away the family companies the individual shareholders of the company are as per the graphic. #auspol
Taylor advised #QT yesterday that he declared his personal interest in the issue. There is nothing in the @GuardianAus published FOI docs to corroborate this statement. scribd.com/document/41456…
