The Six Million Dollar Man

Tony Abbott may be the most out of his depth Australian Prime Minister since Harold Holt, but that hasn't stopped him claiming the equivalent of over 475 years worth of Newstart allowance payments in expenses since 2010.

2011 $1,105,304.25
2012 $1,000,072.99
2013 $1,218,635.70
2014 $1,763,880.95
Total: $6,013,700.15
