"Nice to Have" – $4.12m on a Governor General

Jonathan Marshall has an article about the outrageous expenses of the Governor-General.

Amongst other things there is a bill of $500,000 for photocopying!

I don’t know why we can’t simply outsource the Governor-General’s position to the private sector. Cut the ceremonial bullshit completely, and retain a constitutional lawyer on retainer to cover the constitutional issues if and when they arise.

The retainer would probably only have to be making someone a knight or a dame because it is hard to remember a constitutionally tricky situation that our Governor-General has actually got into in.
