    My Mum is considering having another baby when the LNPs scheme is introduced.

    She was rather miffed when I pointed out that she wasn't a woman of calibre so she would get close to nothing.

    Pitty, I always wanted a little brother or sister.

    (My mother is 82 and on the aged pension.)

    PS. I'm not surprised to find this spelling mistake on a parenting forum, but the party is spelt "Labor". The birthing process is labour hehe
    From Wikipedia:

    "The Australian Labor Party (also ALP and Labor, was Labour before 1912) is an Australian political party."

    I figure if we're going back in time anyway, I'm going right back to the early 1900s ;-)

    In any case, they mean the same, Labor is American English and Labour is British English. I have no idea why the ALP use American English.

    (I do stand corrected though, given the ALP use the American spelling then that's how they should be referred to.)

    It's Labor, not Labour. FFS - I'm stunned by how many people seem to not know this.
