Tax Summit – the pollies and assorted hangers-on gathered in Canberra to discuss the state of the Australian tax system.

Where they stayed for a whole, I dunno 15 minutes. By the time the orthodontist, the local council and the electricity company took their cut (well got their bills paid) there was a grand total of $15 left – let’s go splurge!
