Stop the jun­kets

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE de­ba­cle in Can­berra (con­cern­ing politi­cians’ travel ex­penses) ex­poses another rort­ing of the sys­tems by our elected politi­cians.

I be­lieve it is time to au­dit all politi­cians at all lev­els of gov­ern­ment re­gard­ing the use of our money.

In this day of elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tions why are there so many jun­kets?

I also de­plore the use of public monies to pay for the travel and ac­com­mo­da­tion of their spouses and part­ners.

Us or­di­nary peo­ple must pay for our part­ners, if we wish their com­pany at any venue, why not they?
