Centrelink – epic fail!!


Centrelink is there for the needy, sick and disadvantaged, and yet provides the worst service of any government agency.

The top level of management needs to be sacked immediately, along with their middle management that publish outrageously incorrect phone answering statistics.
Then, and I know this will cost us, but there needs to be a Royal Commission into the whole Department and the policies currently in place. It could easily be a case of the right people being tied up by stupid beaurocracy. Until such a public, complete investigation is done those most in need of help in our society will continue to be treated with disdain.
We should all be ashamed (especially the policy makers who make it so difficult for Centrelink staff to do their job) for treating our people so badly.

RAH HELL!


No wonder Jack Snelling left when he did. This is the disgusting state of health care in SA and after Labor spent $2.6bn!!! Waiting times longer than before, no beds available… basically a complete disaster!

And we have the most expensive hospital in the southern hemisphere!

They should all hand their heads in shame and all the heads of the Health Department should be fired immediately! No excuse for such complete incompetence in looking after our most vulnerable!

Medical Expenses Tax Offset to be Axed!


More evidence that governments attack those who can’t fight back, namely the ill and the poor.

The net medical expenses tax offset will no longer be available from 1 July 2019.

From 1 July 2019 if you have to buy a wheelchair to get around, the tax offset you were allowed (a pathetic 10% of the cost, but at least something) is being deleted. How lovely and caring of those on over $200k p.a. and couldn’t give a stuff.

“From the 2014-15 income year until the end of the 2018-2019 income year, taxpayers can only claim the net medical expenses tax offset for medical expenses that both meet: the current definition and eligibility requirements, and relate to disability aids, attendant care or aged care”.

How lovely of our caring government to kick all sick people in the balls!

Centrelink policies a DISGRACE!

Do it now!!


You never know when your working life will end.

This time last year I was looking forward to the next stage of my career, now I am ill and will never go to work again.

I say this not for sympathy, as those close to me give me more than I deserve already, but to plead with you to act now on what you want to do, start that study, or knock on doors for that start you crave, or change careers NOW.

You have no idea how long you have, and regrets hurt far worse than all the “No’s” you’ll receive before you get your yes!

Go for it, or resign yourself to decades of regret, your choice.
