phew, that was close..
for awhile there it looked as though the former minister for wine and cheese would have to go a whole month without a decent earn…
y’see, his speakers job and income finished on x date, and his london high commissioner gig didn’t start till y date..with a whole month inbetween..
but he’s a crafty old bugger that hunt,eh?..he’s been troughing long enough to know such income gaps are only a matter of bad organisation..so a bit of quick thinking on his part, and hey presto..he’ll stay on as a backbencher for a month (needed to tidy his affairs according to rod donald),..thereby ensuring no gap in income..
i’m sure i speak for all of us when i say we were worried there for you mr hunt..i mean, a whole month..how would you have got by? without a big fat cheque for doing sfa?
oh, by the way, he gets 125 grand in his new perk+xpenses, plus his very genorous parliament super; and get this, plus he’s applying for a pension of $125 per week..
if this latest example of troughing isn’t the strongest case for meanstesting the pension, i don’t know what is..
