Scammed yet again

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

SO the pub­lic have been scammed once again.

In­stead of gen­uine hon­esty and com­mon sense, we are now to see 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, $1 mil­lion plus per an­num to cover salaries, su­per, an­nual leave etc. A fig­ure prob­a­bly much greater than the cur­rent rort. Ge­off Fuller, South Yun­derup.
