Dear Boaty Mc Boatface.
And so "ending a practice Transport Minister Andrew Constance called “straight out theft”.
I have news for you, matey. It was designed that way in the system. The IT people came up with this. Your predecessor, Aunt Gladys, oversaw this. She invited us to "game the system" in an effort to find the flaws. We found the flaws.
It is not theft if the system was designed that way. The correct word is "incompetence".
You and Aunt Gladys have had four years to fix it. Don't try and blame us.
