Letter to the Editor - Monday May 5: Raid the Perth Mint

MR Abbott and his mates are running around at the moment trying to find ways to prop up the budget deficit caused by Kevin O-7's generous handouts (new TVs for all).

Maybe they should look at the Perth Mint (refer story in DEX re Biggest Gold Coin).

First ask the question, where did they get the $50 million to make the coin? Then grab the coin and melt it down to help prop up the budget.

If one government department had an extra $50 million to spare, how many others have money laying about that could be diverted for more important purposes.

There are probably some nice wine cellars that could be raided.
