Retiring National MP John Carter has revealed that he has consumed $77K of public assets for no reason. But it’s all such a funny lark! Carter permanently housed two cars at Parliament for 16 years. Hardly drove them. When he got in trouble for using parking spaces at the expense of others, he just switched them into colleagues’ names.
Car parks aren’t free. The Dom reckons a covered car park costs $200 a month in. Adds up to $38,400 per car over 16 years. Carter’s selfishness means Parliament workers not being able to get a park themselves. Or Parliament having to supply more than it otherwise would. The insult is that he seems to think that its hilarious he got away with it. Expects us to laugh along with him.
