face-off

Pilbara News - - Opinion -

The pub­lic seemed quite unim­pressed by the rec­om­men­da­tions handed down by the North­ern Aus­tralia In­sur­ance Pre­mi­ums Task­force Re­port this month.

I lived in the Pil­bara in the 1970s and the in­sur­ance pre­mi­ums were an is­sue then. So are they ac­tu­ally go­ing to ad­dress this or just talk about it to try and get votes?

How about, in­stead of the govern­ment bend­ing over ev­ery time a multi­na­tional bank or in­sur­ance com­pa­nies want to roger the Aus­tralian pub­lic, they grow a pair and reg­u­late the in­dus­try?

What a crock. Ev­ery­thing built where we are has good rat­ings. Newer builds how­ever are just hav­ing a cell within the house which is cy­clone proof to save money ... Vi­cious cy­cle.
