    After all the waste of this Labor government and the findings of the Sweet FWA investigation in to Craig Thomson of rorting of $500,000, these ALP muppets are now taking away the entitlement for diggers to fly home to their families.

    With the carbon tax imminent these fine men and women will be further financially disadvantaged by being posted far from home.

    Diggers come before rorting politicians.

    It is rule 101 in Australian culture.

    What an absolute bollox of a decision.

    I love the political spin of everything - wasnt it the Liberals that sent our Diggers to this thankless hell hole that still supplies 90pc of the worlds Heroin circa a decade ago ?

    You right our courageous Diggers should get a flight home - Permanently.

    They are most likely paying for the RAAF for fly around and gain experience why not send a Hercules as an exercise even better the personal toy of the Polliesto collect them, Iraq and A/stan will go the same way as all the other wars USA has conned us into.
    The main reason the West want Afghanistan is to run a oil and gas line right across the place.
    Any one who joins the service is a fool,look how our Vet.vets are being treated, living in poverty

    I have voted both Labor and Liberal - and Australian Fishing and Lifestyle party in Between :)

    This country has an absolute enormous amount of habitual voters who vote according to how their Parents programmed them - atleast im a free thinker - the line between our two major parties is so blurred now that neither are more compelling than the other to me.

    Thanks for your comment though :D

    That Gives me the ****s -


    Odds are I will be voting against our current PM at the next election as opposed to voting for any specific political party.

    Anyone else in same/similar mindset?

    I'll be voting for Turnbull. I like him, and he's my member. I wouldn't vote for Abbott or Gillard.

    Once these cuts kick in our ADF will be at its relative weakest since the end of WW2. The RAN is a flotilla of rust buckets, with key crew abandoning ship as we speak. The RAAF have a stop gap fleet of craft we can't afford to fly. And the Army post Afghanistan will be a making it's way to the Pilbara to dig up dirt to built our future enemy's military hardware.

    No wonder we're happy with the US coming to lodge in Darwin for a few months of the year and use Stirling to park it's ships.

    Not at all. All I have is the evidence of your posts which are extremely biased towards the left's class war. And by the way it is the miners and China that keep our economy afloat. Without them we would have third world status. Take your blinkers off.

    Hilarious- we did comparitively fine before the Credit Boom and the China thing - and the notion that we would become a third world nation without China is simply laughable. But who am I to try change someones religious Conviction. Stick with what your one eye so surely believes.

    Wonder if they got the FHOB :
    Maybe they are trying to prop up the RE market???

    "You could have magnificent mud huts for $260,000 each surely - I presume they're not furnished, I presume they don't have plumbing in them - they would be just walls.
