Apparently its ok to use our taxes to pay for accommodation. $270 a night and you don't even need to stay there. Just ask Joe Hockey. While you are asking apparently this is common place. I think Canberra is due for a clean out. Our politicians don't do anything constructive with our taxes. I thought beating up on minorities was as low as the Government could go. From cystic fibrosis to parraroos the aged with dementia and of course the illegal immigrants. Perhaps they can turn the mirror on themselves and stop mis-using our taxes on this rort.
