Retired Members of the Australian Parliament: b#gger pensioner concessions - give us OUR travel entitlements!

The Abbott Government may have removed pensioner rebates and public transport concessions without allowing submissions from pensioner groups on the social and economic values of these concessions, but any thought that retired members of the Australian Parliament must give up Lifetime Gold travel passes without their being able to put their case was obviously not going to be entertained.

Pathetic isn't it - I have emailed my protest to the Association and have asked them for the names of the gutless members wanting even more taxpayer money while hiding behind an "association".

In my email I also suggested if MPs were provided "performance pay" they'd get SFA!
