Jacques has a conversation with Matt Lloyd-Cape from the Per Capita
think tank about their research regarding the allocation and distribution of
Federal funds to victims of the 2019-20 bushfires.
Barely half of the promised billions was spent by the end of 2019 and - as we're now getting
accustomed to with the present LNP federal government - 3/4 of all funds
went to NSW and of that only 1% to Labor electorates...
Rorting and pork-barrelling seem to have consistently been operative principles of
the distribution of grants and other funds by the present government.
