  • 80% of participants support the establishment of an independent federal corruption body to monitor the behaviour of our politicians and public servants.
  • Support is higher than late last year when the same question was asked in conjunction with the conduct of Angus Taylor and the use of inflated figures that Mr Taylor’s office used to attack the travel record of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore (75% in Dec’19).
