LETTER: Pollies need to come under spotlight

OVER the last few years our political system has constantly been undermined by the manipulation and lack lustre approach of our politicians.

Malcolm Turnbull and his indecisive and under-performing companions have offered very little benefit or support to the electorate since they were elected.

Recently increased party tensions coupled with Tony Abbott's constant destabilising comments have created continued political instability and forced the political focus away from community support to political survival.

Our politicians have now become acutely aware that their lucrative jobs and their large financial benefits could be at risk as the electorate becomes disappointed and disillusioned. The whole process needs a complete overhaul. We need an honest, in-depth inquiry into the whole process.
