Blog comments Your Say

  • 'YUhanks Peter for trying

  • Ok So your DFRDB is not indexed. I get that. It does suck and you did join up to defend Australia.
    This government has failed to make any headway in this matter. Failed to Listen.

    But to those of you who think the other pack of mugs will be any better? Whay did the Howard Government not listen to your pleas back when they were in power? They amassed a huge surpless and gave you zip! Thats a fact gents. Ask you local Liberal or National MP's exactly how they are going to help you get this addressed! Ask the buggers. Then please post your answers here. If its anything like mr Lamming, I bet he won't even comment or respond to you.
    Hope I am wrong but bet I am not.

  • The call today on Greg's show is the one that got me. The caller about Qld Motorways and how they don't show the price at point of sale. There is nothing at contract to say what is the fee.
    And try getting a tax invoice when paying, even when the amount is over $100. They will make you wait for up to 4 weeks, unless your prepared to pay extra for what other traders are obliged to give for free.
    Then try paying by credit card, they will refuse to tell you the amount to be debited.
    Then what about the glass wipe they send you without asking for an extra $1.00
    Try being another trader and sending customers unsolicited goods and demanding payment see how far you get.
    Why does this PTY LTD company get away with it?

  • Thanks again for trying Peter, and a big thanks to 4BC for acting on this matter..

  • Show the graph that displays what has happened to us. A picture is worth a thousand words. I have been receiving DFRDB since 1981 and have been greatly discriminated against. In my last employment I was taxed my total pension.

  • @Cry,
    They are building a statue of Gough because that is what all Labor poilticians aspire too. (corruption and money laundering)
    I am sure that Wayne and Julia would blame the allegations against Gough on Tony Abbott.
