plantIt is a jungle in Canberra and we are not talking about politics and parliament. The jungle we have found is in the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) who is spending $66, 641.04 of taxpayer money over the next 3 years on ‘interior plant landscaping’.

We thought the federal budget explained the need for us all to ‘tighten our belt’. Surely this three year contract that works out at just over $427 every week to water and maintain (sorry, landscape) plants would have been a good place to start!

It seems that both sides of Parliament are fond of greenery. Our regular readers will remember the government spending spree back in July of this year. Since then the bill might have reduced somewhat, but the government is still spending a large amount of our money on what we would classify as a ‘would be nice but not essential’ item.
