Can I have this version of work-life balance too, please?

Mr. Downer, I too am a public servant.
I also have my leave cut short when my country needs me. Can I work from my hotel room for a week while I attend to my tan in Cairns? Whilst it won't improve my driving skills it does raise the aesthetics in the environment.

I promise I will look at everything that is delivered by courier to me.
I will leave the security, logistics and cost of it all up to my Boss, but I am available from 8 pm until 10 pm every evening.

Yours Sincerely,
Suki Lombard
Australian Public Servant

Downer (what an appropriate name!):"my paper work will all arrive during the afternoon and I will do that in my hotel room"Gotta justify footing the bill for the hotel room by taxpayers .

If that's the case then I propose a piece-rate system for the Minister. For every page of a document he reads, and can paraphrase the salient points of two paragraphs correctly, the taxpayers will provide the funds for 15 minutes of hotel room time...
I do hope Alex travels with his own cash.
