Morrison govt is 'reminiscent of George Orwell's 1984'

Jeff Morris says the way whistleblowers are being treated is ‘quite disturbing’ and ‘reminiscent of George Orwell’s 1984’. The former Commonwealth Bank employee-turned-whistleblower says greater protections are needed for whistleblowers — especially following AFP raids on ABC headquarters. ‘The Morrison government is making up the rules to suit itself, and anybody who challenges the government will be thrown in jail,’ he says. ‘When a government can behave like this, you wake up one day and you’re living in China.’
