Political Observation

It has come to my attention, when listening to the rather (ahem) conservative radio station that I tune to in the footy season, that their news service enjoys an interesting turn of phrase when it comes to public funding.

"Bad" things (like police presence at strikes, or welfare payments) "cost the taxpayer x millions of dollars."

"Good" things (like upgrading sports facilities) are merely "paid for by the government."

Which is an altogether different thing, obviously.
