Let’s face it, Slipper does have a point. Why was he singled out to be treated as he was (for a piddling amount compared to others on the fiddle at the same time, in the same party) and no one else?
Nice. Between them Susan Wyndham and her husband, the odious Paul Sheehan, must have cleaned out the long suffering Fairfax shareholder of close to a million in get-lost money. Well played.
If Centrelink carry through with prosecutions which result in gaol sentences it will cost taxpayers a helluva lot more to incarcerate the claimants than it would to simply continue the payments or let the matter rest. Prisoners are very expensive to maintain.
Truly stupid economics which it would be no surprise to see this government condone.
But think of the “tough on leaners*” visuals (they’ve worked in the past) – I’m sure this government is.
