It never ceases to amaze me how governments can make cuts to important areas such as health, education and the police yet can waste millions on trivial things or areas such as changing a flag or taking in refugees.
When the budget for feeding prisoners is higher than the budget for feeding a countries service personal, there is a clear message being sent that those in power have mismanaged the countries finances.
When cuts are made claiming there is a need to save money then $25 million can be found to change a flag (and that is just the start) something is rotten in the governments house.
Of course this happens in every country and we the people sit back and take it.
The most disappointing thing is when refugees enter a country and receives better treatment; get better benefits than the countries own beneficiaries there is a serious flaw in the system.
We need to look after our own first and then try taking on others.
