Stop politicians' pension and perks increase

This petition made change with 421 supporters!


Some ex-politicians are not satisfied with the fat pensions and other outrageously generous perks they already receive. They want more.

They get enormous pensions that are already more than twice the average wage of Australian workers and they already get 10 free business class flights each year, but not satisfied with that, they want unlimited free business class flights and more money. Meanwhile the rest of us who didn't make a career out of lying to the public have to pay for any transport out of our much more meager pensions or earnings.

Four greedy pigs (Labor's Barry Cunningham, Tony Lamb and Barry Cohen, and Liberal John Moore) are hoping the High Court on this Wednesday 12th of September will award them an even fatter pension and more perks. It will add many millions more to the bill paid by taxpayers because it will affect something like 350 ex-politicians.

Politicians should be getting their perks and wages cut, not increased.

Tell the High Court that they don't deserve it. Sign the petition. Spread the word. We only have until Wednesday.
