in a nutshell

On the question of accountability for conduct and competence in the leadership of the APS; and in general for all public servants in their public service;

the choice is this:

We can permit corruption and incompetence
by allowing the covert, often illegal, always unethical evasion of accountability to any meaningful standard of conduct, by (powerful) public servants; or,
We can prohibit corruption and incompetence
by demanding transparent accountability to a meaningful standard of conduct.

it hardly seems like a choice.

so where exactly, is the boggle?
