Coalition’s lack of fiscal discipline


Good to read Rick Morton’s analysis of the hollowing out of the public service by this government (“How private management consultant­s took over the public service”, October 9-15). How much money has it wasted on consultant­s? Not to mention other things, such as the ridiculous cost of holding one family on Christmas Island for so long. They pride themselves on their financial management – more like mismanagem­ent in my view.
