Today I am writing more to vent then anything as you know I regularly update this blog when some madness presents itself, for instance I hear that the defence department is just about to bulldoze some accommodation units in Palmerston at robertson barracks they are about 20 years old. So they build things to bulldoze them after 20 years. Really if you look at it this way there is no hope for houses that are 30-40 years old. Imagine if these people were darwin city council they would be bulldozing the mall again.
Politician pay rises Australia
Now this is really not in the scope of this website but I had to write about it , many of the Australian population is doing it hard, real hard and recently they have just been given a pay rise. I don’t know about you but for fun you should listen to question time. Here you will see no value for your money, but at least they sit in parliment 125 days a year. The NT politicians including the chief minister , who is the Bain of our exsistance, I say this because he is the one person in the Northern territory that can provide some power behind our campaign but he is silent.
Well the NT politician wages will now be indexed because they are tied to federal salaries , that means the chief minister ( he who does not care) will be getting close to the prime ministers wages and the NT politicians only sit in parliament 33 days a year.
Whats Upsetting About These Pay Rises
What is upsetting about this is because they just do not care how hard the rest of us are doing , for instance at the raaf base suburb of eaton there are 400 houses that can be used but these people on 300- 500 thousand a year are quiet happy to see them bulldozed and have people live in soon to be built houses. These people who all get paid less then the lowest paid politician have no choice.
Well done Julia and team and thanks for the Great Christmas Present $7 billion in cuts to fund your pay rises and still the bulldozers come.
