This pathetic RC needs to be reaaligned with facts that the inept biased regulator ASIC failed to provide around ISA and their insurance commission deals that detrimentally affected members benefits to the benefit of the ISA funds staff, directors and unions.

How can the stooges running the RC pretend they're anything but biased themselves?
