PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd won't tell Australians how to spend their stimulus bonuses, but says if he is eligible for the handout, he would blow it on books and music.
Taxpayers earning less than $100,000 will receive a one-off bonus of up to $900, as part of the Federal Government's $42 billion stimulus package.
Speaking on Nova radio in Sydney today, Mr Rudd was asked how he would spend the money if he was eligible for the bonus.
"Some people have accused me of being a nerd from central casting,'' he said.
"What I would probably do is go down to the bookshop and buy some books I've been wanting to buy for a while. A bit of music, that sort of stuff.''
I am not sure that Kev and I would have the same taste in books or music but I am pretty sure that I could quite easily spent $900 on them, if I didn't have other expenses!
