PEN­SION DE­LAY

The Chronicle - - Your Say -

Friends, it has just been re­ported that el­i­gi­ble old-age pen­sion­ers are wait­ing six months and more for their ap­pli­ca­tion to be pro­cessed.

Min­is­ter for Hu­man Ser­vices Depart­ment, Michael Keenan stated the de­lay was caused by lack of re­sources, short­age of staff.

In June 2010, fed­eral politi­cians re­ceived a mas­sive pay in­crease. It was never re­ported that politi­cians are still wait­ing for this in­crease. You can bet Lon­don that all re­sources were put into ac­tion and im­me­di­ate pay­ments were made. Yuk.

Your friendly athe­ist ag­nos­tic hea­then jewel.
