Flower I have been working here with awful unsociable shift patterns for 25 years to earn better money . Oz is still one of the best places on earth to live in even when I pay more and I won't be toddling of overseas anytime yet.
Agreed, didn't imply otherwise

By the way tradies are not 'top end' they are chicken $#!T compared to the likes i was referring to. And if they want to they can go.
Sorry, didn't understand where you were coming from, tradies aren't quite chicken shit at $300K a year, however if you want to affect Gina, Rupert, Google, Apple, big miners, banks, superannuation ticket clippers etc. then you are talking akin to nationalisation----so you don't want profitable employers who are the big hitters you refer to? The ABC tonight will no doubt support you as they grill Joe Hockey.

Nothing? talk to any tradie working up north or even worse offshore in the oil industry, they have uncomfortable shift patterns, work in usually quite dangerous environments, miss their families and already pay about 50% in income tax, if this goes through many will choose to live in Hong Kong, Switzerland--and who could blame them, in general they don't mob their Cabinet Members dressed in teacloths and banging drums with tea cosies on their heads while enjoying sheltered educational lifestyles at our expense, fair shake of the sauce bottle blink.gif

I think it is a great budget,
signed Gina, Rupert, Google, Apple, big miners, banks, superannuation ticket clippers etc.
If it is good enough to hit the bottom end and middle of society, it is good enough to hit the top and they have done nothing.
The age of entitlement lives on.

Even for a coalition supporter to the right of Genghis Khan, IMO the current state of play is surely only an ambit "claim" with some deeper purpose because as a Cabinet Minister remarked the other day one doesn't subject oneself to open heart surgery willingly, cannot see there is any chance of the bulk of his proposals going through the Senate, even diehard Labor supporters can see the shambles that Rudd/Gillard created, but neither the students nor the cigar smokers do their causes one jot of good, for the sake of the country lets hope the budget doesn't totally divide the nation and create an unworkable parliament.

The foregoing seems a very long time ago---the Budget: What do members make of it?

IMO one of the initial great plusses following last Saturdays events is that we are being spared the endless press conferences that accompanied the Labor reign which pronounced an initial 100 days of immediate action, long may our Canberra pollies stay away from the Press, only appearing when something concrete and of value is to be unfolded.

With the renewed support of 71 caucus votes Julia Gillard remains the Prime Minster of the country. But who will be the Prime Minister following the 2013 Election? Post your thoughts and take the ShareScene poll.


When this thread was created way back when, little did the creator think that the current poll results resulting from the thread's creation look like turning out to be accurate regarding the general outcome, in fact it's ironic that both of labor's back stabbers will probably disappear in a cloud of vapour on Saturday, IMO a case of poetical justice,--- always hoped the voting public would display this amount of common sense when push became shove.

Thank the Lord it is all very near over biggrin.gif
