Simon Corbell takes his staff off on European tour amidst Budget gloom

By johnboy - 3 May 2005 10

Liberal Heart-Throb, Zed Seselja, is drawing attention to Simon Corbell’s forthcoming departure to the summer warmth of the northern hemisphere. He’s taking along his staff to ensure he’s well taken care of.

revelations by the Minister that he was planning a trip to the United States and the United Kingdom, along with members of his political staff and officers of the ACT Planning and Land Authority.

This despite accusations on ABC Online that Simon’s rushed his City Hill plans out the door without cabinet approval.

Nice work if you can get it Simon, enjoy it while it lasts.

This is bloody outrageous. Apparently he’s going to be viewing ‘garden suburbs’ in the United States.

We pay higher taxes, they get overseas junkets. This mob sure have got their snouts in the trough.

All aboard! The ACT gravy train is soon to depart…

And Quinlan can justify sacking 260 Urban Services staff?

The mind boggles at the machinations of this political machine that appears to be like a runaway train with no-one at the wheel.

Then again, thats majority government for you.

Quite possibly.

Interestingly it would seem that having our local elections so soon after the feds has created some sort of backlash against the majority government federally in that we ended up with a majority government locally.

Of course this is an Ashes Year as well so Lords maybe part of the itinerary to study how cricket grounds in the northern hemisphere work. Hey, I’m serious, we’ve got Manuka and we’ve never had a test match between England and Australia….
