On 5. Last December, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Treasurer Josh Frydenberg filed charges while bushfire smoke blanketed the city of Sydney taxpayers 5. $ 000 for Lachlan Murdoch – heir to the News Corp empire – Christmas party in his harbor mansion.
According to The Guardian, the couple flew on the Prime Minister’s private jet, left Canberra for Sydney after completing their parliamentary duties at 6 p.m., and returned before 9 a.m. the next morning. At the time, her participation in the party was heavily criticized during a national disaster, but the cost to the taxpayer was not yet known.
Other government ministers joined along the way – Peter Dutton of « If You Try To Seek Asylum Here I Will Personally Make You Repent » and Stuart Robert, AKA, the Man Who said « You have to spend hours proving your disability to me in order to receive disability benefits payments. « . Robert didn’t attend the party, but Dutton refused to say whether he did or not.
Morrison, Frydenberg, and Dutton cost another 2. $ 583 to return to Canberra the next morning. While in Sydney, Frydenberg also charged taxpayers for the use of Comcars and an additional $ 486 for the flight home to Melbourne. Dutton flew to Brisbane for $ 831.
The trip to and from Sydney alone, which was less than 14 hours, cost 4. 736 USD. The other additional known costs add up to 6. 053 USD.
During this time, firefighters who risked their lives in the deadliest bushfires this country has ever faced were forced to crowdfund personal protective equipment due to funding cuts.
On 5. Last December, Colo Heights and Macdonald Valley were exposed to terrifying fires. In the meantime, the Prime Minister flicks 5. $ 000 to fly to his Murdoch friend’s Christmas party. True colors shine through. # Bushfire #hawkesbury #truecolours #auspol https: // t. co / CGbslu8xvw
Angry! Such disgusting disrespect to the Australian taxpayer for throwing OUR money around like we were their personal ATM. You can pay for your own damn flight.
If only this private jet was for one of the 38. 000 #strandedaussies @craigthomler could have been used, we could celebrate Christmas at home with our loved ones too, or you know just knowing when we can even return to Australia . . . #travelcaps
While politicians have travel expenses to complete their duties, it is evident that this trip – at least for the Prime Minister and Treasurer – had nothing to do with government business. There are rules that govern this type of thing and they clearly state that the private jet should be used primarily for conducting parliamentary business and the costs involved must be good value for money.
When Malcolm Turnbull was Prime Minister, he introduced new rules for how politicians should use their allowances. He introduced the “pub test,” in which MPs must consider how the public would react to their spending and be ready to publicly justify their decisions.
“We should be as careful and responsible with taxpayers’ money as we can. ”
When Bronwyn Bishop spent $ 5,000 on a helicopter ride to Geelong, there was an outcry in Australia. Now there seems to be acceptance for it. What happened?
Former Finance Minister Mathias Cormann recently received a private jet that taxpayers 4. $ 300 an hour. Yes, per hour. Everything so that he could travel around Europe and try to find a job at the OECD. Imagine someone funding your job search with that kind of money when some people are only getting a diminishing amount of money from JobSeeker.
Interestingly, this did not lead to as much outrage as it did then. Bronwyn Bishop gave 5. 000 US dollars for a helicopter flight and had to resign. Are we just expecting it and now accepting it from politicians? I think we’ll see how the Prime Minister and Treasurer are doing through this latest reveal.
