Welcome To Dullsville

I haven't posted for a few days. Nothing much is going on. I can see why Perth is known as Dullsville. It can be a bit quiet at times.

A couple of days ago, or was it yesterday, the mercury hit 32 degrees Celcius. That's a little unusual for May - we are just over a month and a half away from Winter.

Federal Budget

I like the tactics of the Federal Treasurer. There is income support available for those that don't work. Now the Federal Government wants to have mothers return to work once their child is six years old, i.e. school age, or have their family allowance benefits reduced. Thing is, if you work your benefits are reduced because you have a higher income.

Very clever. Reduce benefits. Increase tax stream. We need more clever politicians like Peter Costello.
