    "The age of entitlement is over" Joe Hockey.

    I know it's not exactly vape related, but please sign this petition to stop politicians getting massive lifetime benefits after leaving office. (page links to official government petition)

    Haven't seen it yet, but may be we should ban them from consultancy & lobbying positions for 10 to 20 years after they leave office. That way they can be quite sure which side of their bread is buttered.

    I don't think that'd really be fair mate, take away their benefits and their right to earn income in a particular field.

    But I really don't see why they should be getting $150k+ a year for life either. (and even dead pollies massive benefits being paid to their families, what a freaking rort!)
