Did you ever wonder why the ABC’s budget figures never seem to quite add up?
You’ve probably read this elsewhere already, but it’s simply too good not to share it here for the benefit of those who may not have seen it.
I’ve decided to re-post the whole lot to do it justice. If you’re time poor and want the summarised version, feel free to zero in on the bolded parts below or head on down to Andrew Bolt’s blog:
Michael Smith has brought my attention to this article written by SMH’s Latika Bourke on 13 April 2017. Predictably, it’s the usual self-loathing plop that we’ve become accustomed to no longer paying money for:
Every year, the government seems to make it harder to really see what they’re doing with our money in the budget – whether by renaming things, requiring an extra click or two to access various papers or simply by the tried and true method of burying its sins deep into the treacherous abyss.
TMR refuses to be beaten.

I’m sifting through it all now and will have a post up soon.
TMR has written extensively about Perth Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi’s grubby conduct.
Today, the WA State Administrative Tribunal (Tribunal) has finally found Scaffidi guilty of 45 serious breaches of the Local Government Act 1995 (WA). A full copy of the decision can be found here.
The sheer brazenness of Scaffidi’s conduct in this matter has been utterly disgraceful.
Do yourself a favour and watch this. If you don’t crack a smile or your heart doesn’t warm just a little bit, then I give up:
In June 2016, the WA liquor licensing authority’s Peter Minchin delivered this horribly conceived and pathetic decision on Aldi’s liquor licence application for its Harrisdale store.
I wonder what my bank would say if I asked them to have more patience with my ‘good’ debt?

So why relatively little media concern? Why no breakout stories on how to save ourselves? What to do if the air raid sirens sound?
