A simple choice

One of the government's new BMWs, unnecessarily purchased so government Ministers wouldn't have the shame of being driven around in a three year old luxury car, costs around $200,000 (plus extras).

An ambulance costs around $220,000 - $150,000 for the van, and $72,000 for the fitout.

Which would you rather have? Self-indulgent luxury for rich politicians, or public services for all?
