Who says Australia isn't an egalitarian society? ...

DH is heartened to discover that as a nation, we show no fear nor favour, and just because someone is a billionaire, like Malcolm Turnbull, is no reason why he should be deprived of the right to the same rental subsidies as every other rentpayer. We don't want to see our politicians reduced to sleeping in the Parliamentary benches after all with only a newspaper to hide behind... that would be unthinkable.

And so what if a billionaire with two children gets $175 per day compared to the $8 the rest of us get, because its all roughly proportional, and some could argue that if the proportions were more fair, ppl like Turnbull, should rightly be getting abou $17,500 a day, so in fact, he is actually making a huge sacrifice, proportionally speaking compared to the rest of us.
