It’s been speculated for some time and on Tuesday national Labor leader Bill Shorten announced he will set up a federal anti-corruption commission.

The commission will have the power to refer anyone to the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says Mr Shorten is no anti-corruption warrior.

Mark Latham tells Ben Fordham, “Shorten is doing this from a position of weakness”.

“If a commission is needed, it’s because of the terrible practice of Labor’s own Dastyari.

“If you needed a commision, you needed it six months, 18 months ago, to sort out Bill Shorten’s mate Sam Dastaryi.”
