Angus Taylor’s apology to Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore a week after the false documents scandal was first reported shows the only thing this hapless Minister is sorry about is that he was caught.
This apology is too little too late.
If Angus Taylor was truly sorry he would be doing everything he could to find the person responsible for the false documents he peddled to The Daily Telegraph and put an end to this scandal.
Instead, he refuses to provide the documents, and the evidence, to support his discredited claim the fake budget figures were obtained from the Sydney City Council website.
The more Angus Taylor tries to cover up the abuse of his office the more weight he adds to Labor’s request for an investigation into his involvement in the peddling of these fabricated figures.
Angus Taylor should now fully co-operate with NSW Police and provide all of the documents he now has in his possession, reveal the source of these documents, and explain how he came to provide fabricated figures about the City of Sydney Budget.
