LETTERS: Age of entitlement over for campaigning pollies

IT appears some politicians have been diverting large amounts of public money from their communication and printing budgets to bolster their election campaigns.

This process has been condemned by political finance experts as a complete corruption of the democratic system.

Our politicians are forever milking the public purse for their own benefit. It appears the whole financial system is theirs to exploit as they want.

When are we going to demand a solution to this problem?

DOUGLAS YOUNG, Silkstone
