Waste in Opposition doesn’t bode well for frugality in government – updated

The Opposition is continuing to push for an MPs’ initiated referendum on the partial sale of a few state owned assets.

It’s nothing more than a tax-payer funded exercise in futility and self promotion.

If they have no concern about the need for frugality in Opposition it doesn’t bode well for a cautious approach to spending when they’re in government as, sooner or later, they will be.

UPDATE:

Keeping Stock quotes the Greens:

Your MPs will be out working in our regions and local communities next week, with Parliament taking a break from sitting. It’s a chance for us to make another big push to get the signatures we need for the asset sales petition.

We’re paying them to collect signatures!

If this is the best use they have for their time and our money it is a very poor reflection on their priorities.
