It is tempting to mock the ineptitude of our Queensland Bligh Labor Government in allowing a fraud of massive proportions go on under their nose and to laugh at our Premier's statewide BOLO for Joel Morehu-Barlow - but that man has solen $16 million of our money.
A pittance in government terms but let's see what $16 million could buy the state of Queensland:
It could pay for the fit out of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra's new headquaters, pay for the state's migrant settlement program, pay for the refurbishment of the Mackay Police Station and the Queensland natural disaster awareness campaign.
While Morehu-Barlow's current whereabouts are unknown, one can have a guess where he might show up in February.
UPATE: Monday, December 12. Caught!
