Malcolm Turnbull’s biggest achievement in the past 12 months has been his defence of the banks.
After one year in office Malcolm Turnbull has shown he’d rather defend the banks from a Royal Commission than defend the victims of banking and financial services rip-offs.
How is it that the Prime Minister who is supposed to govern for all Australians can ignore the heartbreaking stories of those who have been left financially ruined by their banks or financial advisers?
Over the past 12 months we've learnt that Malcolm Turnbull will do whatever it takes to avoid a Royal Commission, and he's turned his back on those hard working Australians who have fallen victim to financial scandals.
I have met victims of financial scandals over the past few weeks and their personal stories highlight exactly why we need a royal commission, to shine a light on the scandals that have left these victims with nothing, but also ensure that these heartbreaking cases, the scandals, the rip-offs never happen again.
Labor will continue to push for a Royal Commission because we know that this is the only way to hold the sector accountable for what has happened in the past and stop the scandals in the future.
After one year in office, the one thing Malcolm Turnbull has proven is you can him out of the investment bank, but you can’t take the investment banker out of Malcolm Turnbull.
