Australians welcome royal commission with scepticism and humour

For years, Australians have been screaming for a royal commission into the banking and finance sector and now they have one they are welcoming it with open arms – and a healthy dose of scepticism and humour.

The royal commission is serious business, and the stories of those who have been blighted by poor banking practices, shonky financial advice and all-round rorting are not to be mocked.

However, Australians are known for dealing with these situations with gusto and a sense of humour, and in what may be part of a collective sigh of relief, these Twitter reactions to this morning’s announcement are priceless.

What was your reaction to the announcement of a banking royal commission? Why not share it and we’ll choose the best for publication?

    I want to know where I can buy the invisible strings? Turnbull is clearly a puppet but I cannot see the strings... Oh wait... are you saying glove puppet?

    What's this guys name again? Was it Turncoat? Trumpbull? Tremble? Turnabout? Turnbull! that's it!

    By the time I remember it properly, he will be gone.

    I look forward to his Liberal replacement, Eric, Tony, Julie: Choose one (or none).

    In fact, a small, vocal group has been calling for a Royal Commission and Labor upped the ante in a populous move to try and gain votes. Now the government has control of the Commission and will set the rules.
