I have been reading about how some Chinese companies (possibly owned by the Chinese govt) paid for Kevin to fly here and there when he was in opposition.
The excuse was that those in opposition get stuff all in travel allowances, so someone has to pay for it.
Why go begging to foreign companies when you wife is a multi-millionaire? Why not just tap her on the shoulder and ask for a ticket to Beijing, or wherever? Hell, why not pay for it out of your own salary, and live off the income of your wife?
Unless of course she really isn't that loaded, so the electorate was sold a load of pap about how "succesful" she is. If she couldn't afford to pay for a few international flights, I wouldn't call her "succesful".
