An obsession with minorities

Treasurer Wayne Swan clearly has plenty of dollars in his campaign war chest. One of our dedicated team of Crikey readers has sent me the following Easter card that arrived in the mail box of one of his Greek friends. My correspondent comments: "In these times of global economic melt down and the tightening of the public purse strings, I find it strange and then insulting that our Federal Treasurer – the keeper of the said purse strings is spending our money and sending Easter cards to minority groups. ... I bet you didn’t get one for English Easter? ... Then to ad insult to it – it is signed Wayne and Family as though they are personal friends. How is this cost justified??? " How indeed.
