Opinion: same old… Taxpayers money spent on travel expenses

I FOUND an interesting letter in an old copy of The West Australian dated January 29, 1994.

It read: “I wonder what outcry there would have been from the Coalition if one of the Greens (WA) senators spent $100,000 of hard-earned taxpayers’ money in travel expenses on an orgy of self-promotion as Liberal Party Senator Bronwyn Bishop did in 1993

“The least Bronwyn admirers could do is put the $100 a ticket they pay to hear her after-dinner speeches towards her travel expenses.” Astrid Herlihy, Kalamunda.

Some things never change.
