POLLY COST SCAM

North Coast Times - - OPINION -

SO the pub­lic have been scammed once again. In­stead of gen­uine hon­esty and com­mon sense, we are now see­ing an in­de­pen­dent watch­dog set up to mon­i­tor politi­cians’ ex­penses.

What a great idea – but at what cost?

Let me guess: The depart­ment will prob­a­bly have a staff of at least five cost­ing the tax­payer at a guess ap­prox­i­mately $1 mil­lion per an­num to cover salaries, su­per, an­nual leave and so forth.

A fig­ure prob­a­bly much greater than the cur­rent rort. GEOFF FULLER, South Yun­derup.
