    My partner works full time as a cook and brings in little more than many others our age who don't work or study.

    Many people our age have been brought up with the idea that money is free. Their parents and grandparents had government aide due to their low income status but they want expect a full wage.

    "In the six months applicants for Newstart and Youth Allowance do not receive income support, they will be required to undertake government-funded job seeking programs.

    Newstart applicants will receive one month of income support for every year they worked before applying for the dole and exceptions to the six months of no income support include parents, young people unable to work more than 30 hours a week, part-time apprentices and Disability Employment Service clients.

    People who refuse jobs will also be penalised with their income payments withdrawn." (http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...yment-benefits)

    I see this as being very fair.

    I actually cried reading this. What sort of fu.ckwit have the people of this country allowed into power. I honestly don't understand how he is getting away with it, I really don't. Surely there must be SOMETHING that can be done to stop him.

    It's like some kind of parallel universe or something. The word I'm thinking of starts with P and ends in path!

    Some of the changes are very worrying but some are fair... I mean office of water science research...? I know there's a department of innovation out there too what a crock. Plenty of luxury BS initiatives which we can't afford are getting cut.

    VP, before you start randomly start agreeing with the cutting of funds for scientific research, can ask you one question? Do you know what the Office or water science research actually does? Or any of the other scientific offices that have gotten the chop?
