Agreed John the pensioners should be paid more but also there are many rorting the system.The long term unemployed have been shifted to the DSP.

We should be getting more tax out of our resources.We presently are almost giving the gas from the North West Shelf to China.Why don’t we make these companies sell resources to Aust Companies at discount rate since it belongs to all Australians.This will give us a manufacturing advantage over our competitors.Malcolm Fraser and his parity pricing should be scrapped.We have to stop feeding the Share Market and stop China from buying our resources.

I don’t think that Kevin has the wisdom or the balls to actually put Aust first.With the devaluation of the $ A our foreign debt is now closer to $900 billion or $90,000.00 for every working person.

The RBA can generate it’s own money and tell the IMF ,World bank and the central banks to get nicked.If they can conjure money from cyber space ,so can we.
