    Default Make me the King

    Since we are an opinionated bunch of scurrels I would like to hear 4 things you would fix /introduce into our system of govvy if you had the seat for just one week

    Here are some of mine

    1. You may have heard of the Young Endeavour. It is a tall sailing ship that belongs to our Navy that takes young folk on sailing legs to build qualities into youth. It works a treat. Both my sons have spent time aboard

    My idea is for an " Old Endeavour". Same ideals.......but for older people

    2. Housing. It is just stupid how much it costs. We need a plan ....maybe modelled on some overseas countries that gives security and permanence to people who just want a place to call their own. An ironclad rent to buy scheme not subject to market volatility that is truly affordable

    3. A 4 day working week

    4. Increase the budget of the ABC every year instead of cutting it

    Increase the budget for the ABC, certainly , by the same percentage the aged pension is increased , no more no less.

    Old Endeavour wheelchair access to the rigging may be a problem

    4 day working week NO FUCKING WAY I'm not going back to 4 days, next you'll want me to start before 11 o'clock.

    1. land costs is a large part of house prices, -do some small estates for tiny houses/cabins
    2. reducing the working week has merit but i would involve the unions at least initially
    3. the abc is the only service many country localities have , i think the sbs needs some consideration also
    perhaps abc should also have limited advertising just like the sbs
    4, give all blokes a redhead...lol
    5. prohibit overseas ownership of vacant houses
    6. consider jail inmates manufacturing cheap tiny houses/cabins
    Seeya,
