Rev. Tim Costello's Bloated Pay Packet


2.2 billion people live on less than $2 a day and over 1 billion live in extreme poverty, trying to survive on just $1.25 per day.

Given these appalling facts the work of Aid agencies like Oxfam, World Vision, Save The Children etc is vital.

But what is a reasonable amount to pay someone who heads one of these agencies?

In the case of TIM COSTELLO from World Vision the answer is disturbing to say the least.

His “total remuneration” package is $316,000 per year.


Abbott Cuts Hit The Poorest Of The Poor


Julie Bishop and Tony Abbott have slashed aid spending to the poorest people in the world again.

This time they’ve cut $4 billion over the next four years.

This means Australia will now drop from being the 13th most generous nation to the 20th.

The total cut to aid this year is almost $11 billion. That’s almost one third of all budget cuts.

Abbott has now cut overseas aid to its lowest level since 1958.

What a disgrace.
