A good time to stay home


Those federal politicians even now planning an overseas trip when Canberra's Parliament House shuts down for the winter towards the end of June should have a good think about the treatment given this morning to Peter Lindsay, the Liberal Member for Herbert in Queensland. Above is how his local paper the Townsville Bulletin reports his current 35 day overseas study tour.
If MPs think they are harshly treated at the moment over their pay and perks, just wait until they see what things are like after the budget next month starts taking benefits away from voters. Then the perks will really come under scrutiny.
