  1. Do we need anymore proof that superannuation is a scam and a socialist plot?

    Why do taxpayers have to fund Keatings office, car and travel nearly 25 years after he left office?

    Isn’t his super enough?

    Its so easy to lecture living in Potts Point with a lifetime parliamentary super to fall back on.

    ScoMo should agree to increase the super rate if Labor agrees to restrictions on payments from Industry funds that fail the sole purpose test like investments in The New Daily and payments to unions etc!!

    The biggest beneficiaries would be the union super funds.
    I wonder if that is in the back of their mind?
    Perish the thought.

    Umm.. when this all started, wasn’t the money supposed to come out of the employees wages, not an extra?
    Now, these two feather dusters classify it as a “Wage Increase.”
    But, I still think it’s a good idea. What needs fixing is the Industry Funds ripping it off, by giving money away to the Labor Party, and to all the Directors.
    The Industry Funds used to claim they did better than the Commercial funds. I sorta doubt this. There’s a bit of funny-money going on there me-thinks.
    Now, added to that bit of lolly, the Industry funds are going to rebuild Australia in it’s entirety. No mention of getting any money back though.
    Still, the operation of the funds – Industry and Commercial – is horrendously expensive.

    If employees want to put an extra 2.5% on their pay into super they can do so now. After a lifetime of living off OPM, senile Keating emerges from his basement advocating more expenditure of OPM. He needs new material. Haven’t the CCP sent him a new script?

    I was just watching the news and Paul Keating said the workers of Australia are being gypped.

    Gyp is a racist term.

    I expect Paul Keating to be expelled from the ALP, the police to investigate his racism and the Race Discrimination Commissioner to solicit complaints.

    What gets me about ALP politicians is how shameless they are. Rudd dropped our borders in 2008 leading us to have to lock up 50,000 boat people costing us $20B and counting. Rudd also promised in 2007 a NBN costing taxpayers $4.7B and finished by 2013. It never got off the ground. The current NBN was decided on a plane flight in 2009 and the country never got to vote on it.

    And is Keatings Superannuation stopping people going on the pension??

    It is the top story on ABC new website.
    It is the opening story on ABC radio.
    It is the opening story on ABC TV at the last news bulliten.

    ABC are even rotating the head line to drum up more outrage:

    “Paul Keating and Kevin Rudd unite to pressure Scott Morrison on superannuation guarantee increase.”
    “Keating and Rudd united against ‘cowardly’ and ‘cruel” Morrison superannuation guarantee changes.”
    “‘Cowardly’ and ‘cruel’: Keating and Rudd unite in attack on Morrison”

    It’s good that the people of Australia woke up to those two.

    What a pair of utterly selfish a…holes.

  12. Professor Fred Lenin

    I totally agree with the comrades at alpbc , Keating and Krudd are cruel and corrupt , good to see the comrades having the guts to attack incompetent corrupt bludging socialist millionaires .
    Keep up your attack s, there are more corrupt socialists to be exposed .

  13. Squirrel

    In his comments today, Keating homed-in on the contrast between the super contribution rate for federal politicians compared to the somewhat lower super guarantee rate for workers generally – a clever point, but who knows where those sorts of comparisons might lead to…..

    Obviously the unions & their super fund pot of gold are driving a couple of last century dills.

    How typically Labor, wanting to get their hands on every ones money

    Perish the thought.

    I suggest that it is in the forefront of their minds.

    But they are either careful to keep it there, or they fail to engage their brains before opening their mouths. 🙂

    Let’s see – over 2 million public servants seem to be realizing that “their 15% super coming from borrowed money” is looking like a throbbing bullseye on their overpaid butts…
    Time to send out the filthy rich excuse makers to tackle those naughty political trouble makers. – “of course private business must pay more super!” – otherwise we wont be able to justify yet another pay rise to stay ahead of the dumb taxpayers (at their expense).
    Cant help themselves – they always go back to plucking the golden goose, they don’t know any other way.
