Oprah the not-quite-so benevolent...

Yesterday we revealed the news that Oprah the eternally munificent deity that she is, had celebrated the last series of her show by giving the entire audience a free holiday to Australia. Cue gushing tributes to Winfrey up and down the land. Well, it seems that her present was not quite so generous after all...

According to The Daily Mail, Oprah's freebie holiday to Australia, in a jet piloted by John Travolta, will be paid for by the Australian Tourist Board - which means that ultimately, the Aussie tax payers will foot the bill. Brilliant!

Disgruntled Antipodeans let off steam on comments boards saying, 'Australian tax payers will be helping to pay for it. You got to love how this government waste our money,' And another fumed, 'Can't you see? We're a gimmick to the USA, and the only city they really know of is Sydney .. so makes sense. They'll probably be asking why they can't see the Kangaroos in the streets.'

Let's hope so...
