Labor Party corruption and/or incompetence seems to have reached new heights with news today that 27,500 pokies were sold for an average of $37,000 per machine for a 10 year entitlement on each machines. These machines generate on average about $100,000 per year. The report by Victoria’s Auditor General claims that Victorian taxpayers lost up to $3 billion on the deal. The Liberal/Nations are generally an unattractive looking bunch of populists but Labor’s sheer incompetence – or perhaps corruption – is breath-taking. There should be a full inquiry into these events.
I have discussed Labor’s involvement in gambling many times before. (184)
