Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

CAN any­one ex­plain the rea­son why West Aus­tralia is the only state which has con­di­tions at­tached to a se­niors card.

Fam­ily and friends in the east ask "where is your se­niors card" when­ever they visit and we are out sight­see­ing..

They can present theirs on re­quest in any state they visit.

They still have full-time, well paid jobs and are au­to­mat­i­cally sent the card when they turn 60.

It's not a pen­sion, but a way for the gov­ern­ment to say thanks for their help over the years.

It would be nice to get a dis­count on some ser­vices. Af­ter all, we have paid con­sid­er­able taxes over the years. GREG WIL­TON, Beckenham.
