airportThere’s just something about airports, isn’t there?

That sense of adventure and exploration in the air.

The halls filled with throngs of eager travellers.

The taxpayer-funded visits to the business class lounge.

Wait, what?

See, the Future Fund Management Agency has recently signed a one-year contract with Brisbane-based corporate travel giant FCm Travel Solutions for “business airline travel.”

In the course of that one year, from April 2014 to April 2015, the Future Fund will spend a whopping $1.3 million of taxpayer money.

Unfortunately, the Fund won’t be required to write on how it spent its travel money.

Nevertheless, WasteWatch wishes the Fund happy travels, as it takes its taxpayer-funded flights round the country to inspect its taxpayer-funded investments.

What larks.
