More good news for everyone concerning downgrading our overseas representation from delegations to free pens in a box at trade shows. It seems that there was a bit of spare cash floating about for swimming pool repairs and High Commissioner house repairs. Until the media found out about them and now they have been stopped. Which is only right seeing as about 300 jobs are going to go.
The government is not without feelings though and has got in a "Change Management" person (a snip at $340,000) who has, reportedly, advised soon to be ex-employees to
"Take a hot bath, pray, do yoga or get a pet'? Because, quote: 'a pet's love is unconditional'"See they don't say what kind of pet so it's up to you, freedom of choice!
Just to prove that the government are not just anti public servant office workers they have frozen the police budget too.
I must say that I am surprised to see Police Association person Greg O'Connor not slipping in a call for more firearms for police. Maybe he will change tack and ask for companion animals.
All in all it's a bright new world.
