Tom Paxton wrote something time back in the 1960s about Kodak getting government funds:
“I’m changing my name to Paladin, so
when they hand a million grand out
I’ll be standing with my handout”,
Dutton claims he knew nothing. If he were to say “I know nothing” I’d be more inclined to believe him.
In the meantime, that famous finance minister from the west, Mathias Cormann, assures me that Travel firms headed by Liberal Treasurers have made it normal practice not to charge Ministers for private travel
after one or more of their subsidiaries are awarded government travel contracts. And important tip Mathias provided was that when making a booking don’t do so through a travel agent get the Head of the firm to do it for you.
