Letters to the Editor

From time to time, a commentary on the world will bubble up inside of me to the extent that I'm forced to write a letter to my local, metropolitan, daily newspaper, The Age. This is where I blow of some steam. Feel like venting too? Add your own comment or visit my homepage.

Commercial Tendering of Political Access

I object to The Age headline "Bracks ministers sold to business leaders for $7500 a head" (The Age, 15/8/2006). This is misleading and unfair - those ministers were rented out at a competitive daily rate, in a transparent commercial transaction. Victoria's taxpayers had every opportunity to submit a rival bid.
