When I realised it was my turn to write the Saturday News Review column for SMH and Bronnie was still Speaker of Parilament, I was so excited I could hardly finish my foie gras. There were two challenges for this column.
First was coming up with something, anything, that hadn't already been written, blogged, tweeted or meme generated about her grotesque appetite for living large on the public tit. Second, was cramming it all into one column. Once you look into her expense claim history it's hard to know where to start. The helicopter rides are a crowd fave, but far from the most most lucrative the many operators of Australia's booming luxury transport business.
