ClubNSW Sues Whistleblower

According to the ABC:

Troy Stolz, the whistleblower who exposed a widespread lack of anti-money laundering compliance around poker machines in registered clubs, is being sued by ClubsNSW.

According to Andrew Wilkie MP “up to 95 per cent of clubs in NSW were operating illegally”. The employee – who worked in their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing compliance department – obviously felt not enough was being done to resolve the issues and allegedly took it to the politician. He’s now being sued by his employer for airing their dirty laundry (get it? money laundering?).

My theory is that these kinds of situations are strong indications of a psychopathic culture – and a psychopath or two in senior management. A healthy organisation would say “yes, we’re not doing enough in this area, the employee did the correct thing by forcing us to take it more seriously”.

Modi “a Psychopath”

Modi “a Psychopath”

On December 15, 2015, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted: “Modi is a coward and a psychopath.”

This is one of the few times I’ve heard one politician refer to another as a psychopath. I’m not sure if he meant it in a clinical sense (Kejriwal is a mechanical engineer by training, not a psychiatrist) or if he was just attacking him, but it’s good to see the concept of politicians perhaps being psychopaths in the mainstream.

Most stories I see hitting the news about psychopaths are still talking about characters in TV shows.
