Calls for Adelaide Archbishop to resign

  Calls for Adelaide Archbishop to resign An number of high profile politicians are calling for Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson to resign after he was sentenced for concealing child sex abuse.Philip Wilson, 67, is the most senior Catholic official in the world to be found guilty of such a crime and was earlier this week sentenced to 12 months in jail with a six-month non-parole period.

Treasurer Scott Morrison ' s former chief of staff Philip Gaetjens will be parachuted into the role only a month after he was appointed Australia's ambassador to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris.

Treasury boss John Fraser has announced he will resign , with a former chief - of - staff to Liberal treasurers Peter Costello and Scott Morrison set to replace him. Mr Gaetjens was secretary of the NSW Treasury between 2011 and 2015.

The Prime Minister noted that Mr Gaetjens recently departed as the chief of staff to Treasurer Scott Morrison, a role that he also held with former treasurer Peter Costello.

Labor hit out at the appointment, accusing the Liberals, and Mr Morrison in particular, of politicising the Treasury.

"Despite this appointment coming on the eve of a general election — when Treasury [with Finance] produces the pre-election economic and fiscal outlook — the Treasurer did not bother to consult with the Opposition," Shadow Treasurer Chris Bowen said in a statement.

"The Treasury is a fine institution that deserves the best people and processes and not the constant politicisation that Scott Morrison has subjected it to."
