  1. Question says:

    Will you lot stop wasting our money.

      Laugh of the Day!
      What makes you think the government believes it is the people’s money?

    My airfare guess was pretty close. The Minister obviously flew business class, not economy class.

    All those expenses, two weeks rubbing elbows with similar government and non-government organization representatives, and the honorable Minister still cannot define “climate change.” No “solutions” came out of COP28 which had the biggest carbon footprint of any COP gathering. Oh, the irony of it all! And I bet tons of meat was served.

    But we have seven years to achieve absurd climate targets that will drive up everyday costs, reduce our standard of living, and increase government control over our lives.

    The earth is going just fine.

    Waiting to see the Big Guy’s expenses for the trip.
