British Consul General to Hong Kong Caroline Wilson is getting lots of heat for living in Hong Kong’s most expensive apartments, throwing away £60,000 of taxpayers’ money per month.
This comes at a time when the entire British government is slashing budgets left and right. Of course the public is outraged!
The British Consulate in Hong Kong defended itself by saying that the apartment is regularly used to host diplomatic events and British officials.
However, this is in comparison to her predecessor Andrew Seaton, whose living quarters cost around £20,000 to £30,000 a month.
