It may be and probably reasonable to abate the superannuation for that 65yo CEO but it is completely inhumane to not pay it to somebody who has worked their body to a shell in manual work and is given maybe just a couple or three years of peace in retirement. In any case Superanuiation is hardly life style rather a subsistence. Since it would be hard with many anomallys to separate the fair from unfair it is worth pointing out that the CEO has most likely saving and private income and the super he gets will be clawed back by taxation. It is just a stupid cry from the petty minded selfish individuals who think only of themselves and the so called injustice by theft of their money instead of accepting willingly their responsibilities as a citizen.

I cannot see how anybody cannot be well aware of Christchurch with the media circus getting on its high heels almost to the exclusion of other happenings in the world even if, as I have, cut the power to my TV to save the waste of power from it being on standby and not being turned on this past week and likely the next week or more. Another day of lost production so the stuffed shirts can stand in front of the TV cameras …. Urrgh!

The problem with Anthony’s suggestion of having to apply for an ‘old age benefit’ is that it negates any reason for the ordinary person to save if becuase they have deprived themselves today that tommorrow their savings income will abate chances of super which after all is just a subsistence allowance and certainly not a life-style.

I don’t know what Somalia shows us BUT I know that with the populkation the world has now there has to be government to keep order and share the limited resorces. So all you individualistic guys … put a peg on it and reduce the worlds’ population back down to the numbers in 16th century and you can go for gold again.. A great inheritance for your great gandchild if not for yourself. But you are too selfish to think beyond your nose … sad really.
