Kev, Nick And Mark Go To The Cricket

Not a good look:
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has defended his use of a government VIP aircraft to take his sons to the test cricket in Melbourne.

Mr Rudd said he simply acted on the basis of the normal practice of past prime ministers...

The trips to the cricket for Mr Rudd and his two sons - Marcus and Nicholas - cost $10,400, according to documents tabled in parliament on Thursday.
Howzat? More on pollie travel costs here. The number of MPs who spent more than my entire yearly wage on travel alone is quite sickening.
