TONY Ab­bott leaves par­lia­ment with a life­time pen­sion of ap­prox­i­mately $330,000 per year.

To quote Scott Morrison, “How good is that?”.

Now that’s the true mean­ing of par­lia­men­tary priv­i­lege.

Think of that next time those we employ in gov­ern­ment claim to have our best in­ter­ests at heart and are in touch with the lives of their fel­low Aus­tralians.

Next time our aged and dis­abled pen­sion­ers or New­start re­cip­i­ents have a whinge about how tough it is to pay the bills, spare a thought for our par­lia­men­tary re­tirees.

I won­der what else could be done with all that cash spent on the pen­sions and perks of de­part­ing par­lia­men­tar­i­ans.

— TONY SULLIVAN
