No scrutiny please, its been spent

Well what a week it has been in Federal politics.

Even Chris Pyne didn't even bother to turn up to vote on his own bill for an inquiry into the ALP's B.E.R. But when you understand he knew he couldn't get the numbers to support the vote he found another way to talk about this.

When. given the opportunity to vote for more scrutiny of government spending the independents have repeatedly said; “Nah don't worry about it ...we'll trust the government on military spending, then scuttled a vote for the Public Works committee to scrutinise the ABN spending and likewise no scrutiny on BER spending.

While all makes one comment from Independent Tony Windsor is quite interesting, essentially saying that he wouldn't be voting for more scrutiny into how the money was spent because he voted in support of more spending.

Therein lies the problem some politicians are having. It seems for many, so long as money was spent ... on something … and jobs were kept and someone got something and the bills were paid everything is as it was meant to be.

The question of value for money is an issue they dare not consider and certainly dare not put under scrutiny...

If they held an inquiry who knows what you might find out? Turn It Up.... I'm Michael Robinson.
