Games Security Blowout: Safe but not Sorry

In amidst the backslapping amongst the M2006 Organisers, the Bracks Government and the rest of the country for a games achievement; Steve Bracks has admitted overspending on security by $70m. The government has conveniently remained under its self imposed spending cap of $697m by not including these additional costs. It's the kind of shifty accounting first year Commerce students learn, or that employed by Enron's smartest guys in the room.
It's fine that this move will not breach limits for specific Games spending, but in the end, taxpayers still pick up the bill. Victorians deserve better than Bracks.
