    Given what they achieve when they are at work we should see a significant improvement with them on holiday!

    They primarily use their time to play the political game to shore up their own position, they don't give a stuff about the public then p**s off for 6 weeks in winter at our expense.

    I'm getting a bit sick of our system to be honest.

    Re: Australian Politics General.....

    I got fed up the first time I went to vote and the score didn't fit with my punt....how could be people be so stupid!!!!:D

    I placate myself that the other 15 million voters' lack a third eye, let alone the eye of providence that I uniquely possess. Of course I knew I was uniquely talented way back in my teens when strange things started up with my Jolly Roger when looking at girls in suspenders on buses and simultaneously realising how stupid parents are.

    There are about 1 million voters out there that aren't registered and meta data hasn't found yet.....I wonder if they have a 6th chakra going on?

    Why don't these revenue wasting politicians do something useful.

    How many thousands of jobs have been lost by people like the banks, Telstra and others moving jobs offshore ?

    Why don't they introduce a law that says you do business in Australia you employ Australians, yes profits might suffer but stiff cheese, they will more than survive and continue to do well.

    Buy back the public utilities, Gas, Electricity and Water and employ people where needed not the bare minimum to increase profits.

    Public transport same thing, bring back conductors, railway station attendants and so on.

    Too hard I guess...........but if we had people of vision and ability in power perhaps not.

    If the jobs were available locally it would make a big difference, give some people a purpose in life.

    I don't know the full story but if people on welfare don't take available jobs they should be cut off.

    As if that would happen.:D

    There is more chance of an increase in welfare payments, due to the increased cost of living in Sydney.:D:D

    Yes and there's a gigantic flaw in the sytem right there.
    Politics rules, common sense doesn't get a look in.

    All I know is my disability pension is more than reasonable and university grants just add to the awesomeness. I have a social conscience though... I look forward to the day where I can make a pretty penny and give back to the system that's been so good to me.

    Other than that Abbott is a damn fool... worst PM in quite some time. Liberal can suck it. Bring back those good ole labor socialists comrade ;)

    Was holidaying in Tokyo last month. Was flabbergasted by the high level of make work jobs.

    At ssom busier intersections you'd have old people conducting the traffic, but but there's traffic lights doing it already. Some of the large department stores had staff conducting taxis and cars. Japan rail seems bloated with staff. 2 or 3 walking through trains on to top the driver. Someone on the platform waving their baton as the gates open and closed for the bullet train. So many old man standing at the entrance to construction sites it makes the CFMEU look like they under staff.

    Best to have an efficient economy, and I do hope some companies decide that Australian staff give them a competitive advantage.

    My employer was bought out a couple of years ago and new management off shored most of the staff in Melbourne, losing a decade or more of experience. I know we lost a lot of corporate customers, but the bean counters must have decided the cost savings were worth the brand damage.
