Kate and Michaela off to an early start as ICAC lifts suppression order on Credlin and Nicolaou emails 
Previously suppressed emails at a corruption inquiry raise serious concerns about major donors to the Liberal Party being rewarded with extraordinary access to senior party figures. The emails are from the chief fundraiser of the NSW Liberal Party Paul Nicolaou to Peta Credlin, one of the most powerful figures in the federal government.

The Sansom report has suggested that NSW cannot afford to have 152 councils - and that the 41 in Sydney alone should be reduced to 15-18. 
The politically explosive issue of council amalgamations is set to be revisited by the NSW government after updated figures revealed the continuing deterioration of the state's local government sector.

Enough.
Today's editorial: 
''On July 12, 2012, after the death of Thomas Kelly, the Herald ran an editorial calling for a safer Sydney under the headline ''Enough is enough with Kings Cross lawlessness''. Eighteen months have passed and there has been a great deal of effort. But there has not been what we perceive as a galvanising effort. The police and pubs and clubs do not seem to have a common plan. Kings Cross is as seedy as ever. Too many young men feel they can take drugs and get drunk and menace people with no fear of serious consequences. All of this has to change. The time is now.''

Here's the best of today's paper:

At www.smh.com.au/investigations : Michaela Whitbourn and Rachel Browne on where your charity dollar goes and how hard it is to find out.

At  www.smh.com.au/immerse : Tim Elliott on the Australian couple who have spent more than a decade working in the slums of Bangkok; plus Paul McGeough on bank robber  Corey Donaldson - Robin Hood or conman?

At www.smh.com.au/comment : Mike Carlton figures we might as well just sell the Reef; Jac Maley and Ross Gittins go all MYEFO; Richard Glover and Julia Baird give their very different takes on Christmas.

And Peter Hannam has found a family which has cut its power bill in half. Here's how: http://www.smh.com.au/environment/energy-smart/simple-techniques-allow-australian-consumers-to-make-large-savings-on-electricity-bills-20131220-2zqru.html 

You're welcome.

Hesterine de Reus told me she felt like she had failed losing her job as Matildas coach before her plan to raise them to the top of the world could be executed. 
The Matildas can win an Olympic gold medal and a world cup if they appoint another world class coach, says the woman who was sacked from the position.
