Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

FOR­MER Trea­surer Joe Hockey said “the age of en­ti­tle­ment is over”, which means cut­ting ser­vices to hos­pi­tals, ed­u­ca­tion and other ser­vices that ben­e­fit the dis­ad­van­taged.

Now Joe is pen­sioned off at the age of 50 on $90,000 a year, some­thing I am not al­lowed to do.

He can also col­lect from us weary tax­pay­ers a cool $360,000 as Am­bas­sador to the United States.

It is called dou­ble dip­ping, and that is an­other thing I am not al­lowed to do.

What he failed to clar­ify was that the age of en­ti­tle­ment was over for us ple­beians only. It would not ap­ply to politi­cians. WIL­LIAM BOOTH, Bent­ley.
