    Oh goodness me.
    I was planning on doing honours etc. But I might just finish my undergrad and see what I can get. I have about 9 subjects left now.

    If this gets through it is only going to get more expensive, I can not really see them offering cheaper prices than they currently are.

    Really, a full time job pays $230 a week? I don't think so.

    This is assuming that HELP/HECS remains the way it is now, which it wont. In Canada, uni degrees cost much the same here, but interest on loans are ridiculous, 15% last time I checked, 15% on a 50,000 student loan. Ludicrous.

    Where is your evidence that we are in this position because "Labor" stuffed up?

    It really was a lose/lose election last time around but I still maintain Libs were the lesser of 2 evils.

    I said that to DH, Cranky. It isn't just about the fuel we use at the bowser. Grocery prices are going to go up, in fact really any business that uses transportation. Coles are hardly going to absorb the cost, that cost will filter down to our grocery bills.

    It never ceases to amaze me how easily tricked people have become into believing we have this huge debt. Please get your facts right people.

    Our debt in relation to GDP is 17%. Most developed nations are all sitting at 75%, and most of our debt was incurred from the stimulus package... which worked. We ranked number 4 in the world for surviving it.

    I wish people would stop saying we have this huge debt. We don't. Please do your research and stop repeating Lib rhetoric that simply isn't true.

    @delirium and @beebs net debt is not even 14% of GPD.

    It is worth half of the annual federal income. I know a lot of people who would dream to have only half of their annual income on their mortgage...!

    Sounds like QLD is the place to be if you are an RN, they don't get that much straight out of uni in NSW.

    I believe nurses are paid quite well. I believe that doctors start out on a much lower salary than what people believe but their pay goes up as their experience and knowledge increases.
