Radio National is reporting plans on the part of Medicare and the Government to compulsorily take part of public servants' superannuation on retirement, and use it to pay health care premiums, regardless of the choices and wishes of said retirees once Medicare is privatised. With no regard to whethe...

Canberra Home Delivery Food?

By 25 October 2014 9

I've just moved to Canberra and quite like it... except for the take-away and home delivery choices (or at least those I've found so far). Why does Pad Thai cost $16.50 (Lemon Grass)? In Sydney $12 is expensive. Same goes for Indian food... curries at $17-20 is a rip-off for take away. And why n...

By 30 January 2010 4

I spotted this and thought "what a great idea!". West Belconnen Health Co-op has opened in Charnwod, with members able to see a GP at bulk-billing rates. A year's membership varies from $10 for a single pensioner, to $50 for a family with no Health Care Card. Think about the gap fees that many Canbe...

Australia Day Party Pigs

I love Australia Day.  Every year I get together with friends and have a picnic at the lake.  This year however, when we arrived early in the morning at one of our favourite spots at Lennox Gardens (the park behind the Hyatt Hotel ), we were confronted with what I can only say would have to be the...

Anyone after a home theatre? Dodgy dealings

By 28 January 2010 27

Quite some time ago, a year or so I'm pretty sure there was a story on here I have been unable to locate about some guys selling home theatres out of a van. The story went along the lines they would pull up next to you at  a bus stop or walking down the road.  They would then ask if you would b...

Kaleen University?

By 28 January 2010 12

I know how there are members of the community that dislike Super Schools (Preschool to Year 10). Well without any consultation, the ACT Government has decided to give Kaleen a Preschool to Year 21 school. My evidence is the below tender: Tender Number: 2009.0302.906 Description: BER Project: St...
