Oh dear:

TREASURER Joe Hockey made 13 taxpayer-funded trips to sleepy Cairns — the town where he owns a farm — while in opposition.

The revelations come just a week after it emerged speaker Bronwyn Bishop had billed taxpayers $5227 for an 80km flight from Geelong to Melbourne in a luxury helicopter to a Liberal Party fundraiser.

Details of Mr Hockey’s taxpayer-funded entitlements show he travelled to Cairns as shadow treasurer 13 times and on another two occasions while in government — for a bill of more than $20,000.

Both of Mr Hockey’s trips to the tropical north when in government were for the critical G20 ­finance minister’s summit and he did not go to the farm.
