Spot The Lie

Which of the following statements is not true?

(a) Phillip Ruddock's office is running a secret political 'dirt unit', or

(a) ASIO routinely vets journalists, or

(c) Federal MPs have just recieved a 6.5 per cent pay rise.

If you answered (c), congratulations! Yes, the payrise was actually 6.7 percent (more than double the rate of inflation). Mind you, Ruddock vehemently denies both (a) and (b) as well.
