Maybe it's on the back of reading that 22000 Australian military personnel will lose their one free flight home per year...

This just totally laughs at what has been going on with Craig Thomson this week, basically steals hundreds of thousands of dollars from his employer, is found out, never fully investigated and still has an extremely highly paid by taxpayers job

Makes me feel sick to my stomach.

Carbon tax introduction, no increase to pensioners pension, job loss, increased charges from privatised utilities, etc

We're in bad shape and getting worse by the minute...

I feel like starting my own political party...

And, Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne has it's flame extinguished by some nutjob obviously with a bee in his bonnet about something...hope he gets locked up.

We wouldn't not have it, but far out

I knew they would go up a bit, but that was a bit hard swallow.

Profiteering much?

If it was only $100 i'd likely just pay it, but 3 times more than that

i hate to be that person, but our insurance went down this year...

discount for having all our banking/insurance/finance with the one company.

i'm with karen... i too preach insurance. i don't have health insurance, but have life insurance, contents insurance, loan insurance, c/card insurance (or did when i had the card) etc. i hate the premiums, but i'd rather know i was taken care of in the event of something happening. gawd.. i sound like the ex-bank employee that i am.

i'll shut up now
