The banking royal commission has exposed a sick, rotten leadership culture in the big banks that has swindled working people and destroyed lives.

And it never would have happened if Liberal MP Chris Crewther had his way.

Local victims of banking misconduct urged Mr Crewther to support a banking royal commission but he ignored them and instead voted 20 times to block it.

Now Mr Crewther is supporting a push to give banks more access to workers’ retirement savings.
