The latest pension "increase" is less than a cup of coffee per WEEK......and even come election time, we remain powerless as there is no party who will commit to do better for senior citizens, even though we are potentially a very powerful voting bloc. Like most of us, I suspect - if I can ever make a dollar without telling Centrelink, I will certainly do so. Instead of encouraging good citizenship, our government is fostering lies and duplicity. (Maybe trying to turn us all into politicians?) :lol:

Kfchugo, so very true, after all didn't we originate from a bunch of foreign crooks in the first place?

Perro, that is a very telling comparison indeed.
Wish I could do something about the situation, something positive for the aged-care sufferers!
