  1. I think they expectation was that these spongers would decend, suck up all the water, disappear and we the poor electorate would be left damp but happy, sadly their singular skill only seems to work for brown envelopes full of cash.

    Surprisingly once they left they also “forgot” to pay for all the big fat juicy prawns and fine wine they had on their day trip out of the office.
