versailles-mirrors Maybe it’s because Anthony Albanese’s been etching his opposition to data retention laws into the backs of all the chairs, just to make sure EVERYBODY knows it.

All we know is that something is wearing out the furniture in the House of Representatives quicker than you can say “leadership spill.”

Since the beginning of this year, six contracts from the Department of the House of Representatives, worth nearly $690,000 of your money, have been released, all for “office furniture.”

(See here, here, here, here, here, and here.)

WasteWatch is well aware that pollies are used to the beautiful things in life – so long as they don’t have to pay for them – but $690,000 in four months? That’s some serious retail therapy.

Your tax dollars at work!
