What's ours is... well, yours.

In the last 24 hours, the Australian Labor Party has announced a policy that 'surplus' land held by the Federal Government would be released for low-income people to have their own housing. In my words, "What's ours is... well, yours."

Each year, Government Departments would have to cough up the titles to the land they no longer need, or explain in detail why each parcel of land is needed.

I can see bureaucracy at work, here. Doesn't that amount of make-work look marvellous as it churns through its nugatory effort!

Meanwhile, the Lib/Nat side of politics was doing a sell-job on the previous day's announcement. Nothing new there. That scores zero, and a minus one for the forthcoming nugatory effort by the opposition.
