Standing Report

Sore Feet and calves, but otherwise feeling great.  Think I’m sleeping better at night (although my sleep routine is in total shambles at the moment).

In the news today, the biggest item that caught my attention was that the costs have been released for subsidising pensioners to get a set top box installed, if they don’t have a new TV. Gizmodo ran an article on this, and I have to disagree.  It’s not about HOW we should subsidise, it’s WHY should we subsidise.  This has been a change that has been on the cards for ten years.  If you haven’t been able to squirrel away the estimated $40 bucks (or the original $100 estimated cost), then you probably can’t afford to be watching TV.  Why does the tax pay have to fork out nearly $60 million dollars for this?

Although – what do you expect?  We’ve got politicians that are so blatently rude, they walk out of a sitting parliament, not to mention the fact that they’re still not legally accountable for election promises.
