This week on City Limits, Meg, Kevin and Zeb speak with Han Aulby, Director of the Centre for Public Integrity, and later with Dave Sweeney, nuclear-free campaigner with the Australian Conservation Foundation.With Han, we discuss definitions of corruption, the continued absence of a national integrity commission, and the influence of lobby groups and problems with the Australian model defining lobbyists. To join their webinar Strangling Accountability (12pm, Friday 24th September), with investigative journalist Paul Farrell and barrister Geoffrey Watson on the secrecy of government information, register here. Later, we talk to Dave about Scott Morrison's surprise $100B nuclear-powered submarine announcement with the UK and US, and the answers that parliament and people deserve to know about this deal. He dissects the problems from an environmental and diplomatic standpoint, describing the subs as a "Trojan horse" which has strong potential to submerge Australia into the murky waters of nuclear power, nuclear weapons, and warfare.
