    @Ana Gram there are other alternatives like a private greener car. The technologies exist but large powerful lobbies keep them at bay.

    Public transport might not be the preferred way to transport a family. And it's fair given that a family would fill a car.
    However it is possible and done in other world capitals.

    Now they need to support better public transports so that people can leave their cars at home.
    That is ridiculous. I understand fuel has a huge impact one our environment. But instead of smashing everyone with petrol prices, vow about we invest into make public transport that you don't need to take a loan out for just to use it and make it more accessible for people to use. Not sure about other states but Queensland's public transport is horrendous. We don't have another choice but to drive!

    For me to go to work on the train it's $35.60 return.

    Ridiculous and cheaper to drive.

    This has to be a Monty Python skit or something... $500 million for an ice breaker ship? $93 million to find MH370?

    It nice in theory and in an ideal world where I could afford a nice new shiny eco car, I'd totally buy one. But sadly, since I will have to go back on the dole in about 6 months when my contract finishes, I will not be getting one.

    It's interesting to see the difference in Uni fees. My units at Uni are $1200 plus each already and I have 24 of them. That's for a health science degree (health promotion), not exactly the highest paid career.

    Why isn't Malaysia paying for finding the flight?

    Malaysia, China and other countries are paying too.

    Sadly the flight went down in our international water and it is Australia's responsibilities to look for the plane.

    Just checked - they moved education and nursing from national priority to band 1 in 2010. They were original considered a national priority along with science and maths with heavily discounted fees to try and boost the number of enrollment a and graduates.
