        Some businesses may have profited but there's a large number of businesses and the wider population who greatly benefited. I wouldn't term it as a scandal (and yes I know the outcry over Harvey Norman is always media winner!). Imagine if they'd done nothing.

          Or imagine if Morrison did something useful such as define some parameters and give people the autonomy to choose where to stimulate the economy in a way that suits them.

          I'd rather that than billions funnelled to big business who are sacking people anyway.

          Morrison's focus in on the alleged rapists and on the numerous harrassment and corruption claims again members of his cabinet.

          His other interest is handing $40 million of our money over to Murdoch.

    Received my money today, How good!

  •  

    Spent exactly $400 for 3 nights at hotel. Do I still need to spend on an event or attraction or is $400 on accommodation sufficient? In other words does it need to be more than 400 on accommodation plus an event or attraction? The wording is not that crystal clear.

    •  

      you'll be fine. They're not going to knock you back on some obscure technicality
      PS: Name doesn't check out

      •  

        anyway, bought the cheapest museum ticket i could fine and sorted…thank you

  •  

    Did anyone find out if attractions included annual passes at the zoo, museum or aquarium?

  •  

    trying to submit my claim, but the unique link that I received in the email is not working, after login to grants portal account, nowhere to complete the claim or start a new application, maybe the link I received is not correct?

    •
