"Our SAS went to a war.  Inocents died. Thats a surprise!"

"Gareth Morgan, stick to the cats, we can understand that."

"Stop moaning, or the super age will go to 69"


The media have done such a disgraceful  job on this matter,  They simply broadcast the headline without knowing what the hell the super is all about.  I wish they would be held accountable for their actions.

"super was 65, the 60, then 65, now perhaps 67.  It is your taxes, your money."


Labour have been in favour of 67 for 2 elections, now they are dead against it.  Incredible.  Look back, super tax was always paid specifically for your pension, you still pay it, under another disgiuse, but every person pays for it and is entitled to it, we rely on politicians to make sure it is at the right age.  Now do the job, dont play politics with our lives.

"Cricket : If it was your money would you pay them?"


An open question to which everyone is entitled to an opinion.  I have worked all my life where I get paid depending on my efforts and results.  Guess where  stand.
