Troy's departure is the state's loss. And apparently all over a mere $75.00 worth of car travel. As I understand it, most hotel rooms charge the same whether the bed is slept in by one or two people, so the Albany hotel charge shouldn't even have come up. Let's hope that when all the shock jocks have had their say (especially from the ABC morning program), Colin will be able to find a place for Troy again.

It's a very disappointing event & only on principle do I believe the premier needed Mr Buswell's resignation. On the personal side, it's nobody elses business & on the financial side, its nothing compared with the hundreds of millions of dollars the Federal Govt is wasting on its immigration fiasco. So long as Mr Buswell pays the money back, what's the problem. Theo Marshall Dalkeith
