Getting laid on the taxpayer

Sadly this isn’t about Shane Jones, or other politicians playing about, but about troughers getting their rocks off thanks to publicly funded junkets.

The other week I blogged about a delegation of troughers winging their way over to Japan.

You’ve got to give it to them to lush it up while overseas thanks to the hand-outs from the Ministry of Health.

Let’s look at what one delegate got up to – Smokefree Coalition Director Prudence Stone. 


Flashing yourself in a kimono is one thing, but boasting that you got laid too is something all together.

But hey, who cares when the poor old taxpayer is footing the bill. I’m sure Tony Ryall will be most interested in your report on Japan when you’re next lobbying him for more funding.
