And the Premier’s office do nothing. For months.
And so you write again. Did they receive your disclosure?
And again the Premier’s office do nothing. For months.
And so you write again.
You give more information. But you do not repeat your disclosure - because you have already “disclosed” to them twice. And this third letter triggers a response. A “Briefing Note for the Premier” is prepared by a senior public servant.
The Premier is advised that you keep on writing pesky letters. But no mention is made of the disclosure in your first two letters. And the Premier is advised not to reply to your pesky letters.
And the Premier agrees not to reply to your letters. He signs the “Briefing Note” with a big, swirly signature. And all of his senior public servants also agree not to respond to your pesky letters.
And so all of your letters to the Premier from that date onwards are simply filed by a machine, without being read.
And no public servant “knows”.
And eventually you realise that you are whistling into an empty room.
