Bad timing: Holgate’s very expensive estimates watch

Australia Post chief executive Christine Holgate made sure she looked the part for her career defining appearance at Senate estimates on Thursday, (which might yet turn out to be career ending, given it was so disastrous that the government quickly suspended her).

How unfortunate though, given the revelations that Holgate rewarded four senior executives with four Cartier watches worth $3000 each, that Holgate chose to accessorise her Senate hot seat session with a luxury watch. A very expensive luxury watch.
