"One of Australia's most senior and highly paid public servants has
resigned amid questions over his conduct and allegations of bias.

The Public Service Commissioner John Lloyd was appointed to the role by
the Abbott government in December 2014, but has advised the Governor-
General he will be stepping down from his $678,000 job in August.

Mr Lloyd was responsible for ensuring the bureaucracy complied with its
code of conduct and met professional standards.

He has proven a controversial figure in the federal public service due to
his links to the right-wing think tank, the Institute of Public Affairs
(IPA), and association with the Government's unpopular wage and staffing
caps. ... "

One thing is sure:
He won't be missed! Good riddance!
What this country needs is a fully independent and politically unaligned
Public Service.

Well there was never going to be any other outcome when that muppet
Abbott appointed someone straight out of the IPA! professional public
servants know better. I blame that nasty little weed Howard as he's the
one who started to politicisation of the APS when he appointed that toe
cutter Max the Axe.
