457 scams and system corruption in Australia

This is a huge scandal with far reaching serious National consequences and implications. The following represents my personal view on the 457 visa scandal and its ramifications. The recently exposed corruption is the last bit in the jig saw puzzle of my understanding. I cannot "prove" much of what follows, it is supposition not fact, but I believe that I am fairly close to the overall truth.

NSW Government wastes $86M on catholic recruitment drive

Sydney's newspaper, the Sun-Herald has just reported that its annual catholic youth recruitment drive otherwise known as World Youth Day World, which was hosted by the NSW Government Sydney in 2008 cost taxpayers $86 million. Yet the original estimate was just $20 million, so it blew out by $66 million.

Would NSW taxpayers have accepted $86M and the disruption, especially non-catholics had they known this? Clearly the people were misled.

And how dare the catholic church request the NSW and Commonwealth Governments fund its WYD08 recruitment drive to the tune of $86M+, when the catholic church has been found to generate $15 billion in revenue in 2004 alone?
How unethical!
