INCREDIBLE! INCREDIBLE! INCREDIBLE!
In an attempt to get Gurmesh Singh, MP, the Chair of this committee, to comment on certain aspects of the performance of Sue Dawson and her people at the HCCC, this letter was emailed to him on 29 June, 2020. The email address we used was the one for his electorate as shown on the NSW Parliament’s website – firstname.lastname@example.org. It was assumed that if we used this email address it would get to him.
Having not heard anything in 24 days, this email was followed up with, “I’m wondering if you got this email? on 23 July, 2020, as a result of which, we got this.
In other words, it would appear that our email to Mr Singh was just sent on to the committee’s staff. And furthermore, that although, in any case, we’re told this already always happens, we’re told that, in the future, we should just send letters like the one we’ve sent, to the Committees staff, so the staff at Mr Singh’s electoral office won’t be bothered with them.
Which, to us, raises the question, as whether Mr Singh, has got the 29 June letter yet. Certainly, if he did get it, he hasn’t responded to it in any way.
And the more important question that’s raised is whether Mr Singh hasn’t got this letter because he’s given orders that he is NEVER to be bothered with letters like this one – when he’s the Chair of a committee specially set up to, and we quote from one of Mr Singh’s own letters, “to monitor and review the HCCC’s overall performance.”
To try and clarify the situation, this was sent today, on 24 July, 2020, to the Committee’s staff, using the ordinary email address that’s been nominated, email@example.com.
We’ll let you know if we get a response.
To us, appointing Mr Singh to be the Chair of this important committee is possibly shaping up as another one of those horrible “people decisions” that keep being made within the Berejiklian Government.
