You work out what is true here and what is not

He is not my friend and he lives next door in downtown Melbourne. He is attractive, young and worldly. He also teeters on the edge. He does an honest day's work everyday. He rarely uses a computer, but when he did a year or so ago, he was selling steroids over the internet.

Customs, coffers full thanks to the indulgence of our Prime Minister, John Howard, saw fit to spend $20,000 prosecuting him with a result of two $300 fines. Yep, they brought in all the experts, computer boffins included to examine his pc hard drive.

The case before his was a woman who had bought two tabs of a sedative over the internet, instead of going to her doctor.

Your taxes at work in the lucky country.
