Lost billions

We now have not one, but two government ministers jumping aboard an already overloaded bandwagon and boasting about "saving'' half a billion on welfare fraud, while simultaneously sitting silently on their hands and saying nothing about the real scammers who not only got away with billions, but are now being handsomely overpaid by the State as a reward for their efforts.

It's appalling to think that they are so foolish as to believe that by scraping around saving the loose change, that the real folding money is somehow going to look after itself.
