Reader riposte: DFAT's budget

Charles Lockyer comments on Alex Oliver's post about the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's budget woes:

Judging from what has happened (according to the press, anyway) when both natural and man-made disasters have struck and expats start fleeing their new countries, I think my first call will be made to the local British Embassy, with a possible second call to the US Embassy - it appears no-one is getting satisfaction from their Australian Embassies, and judging from the budget, the service is only going to get worse.
