"I get a good laugh from reading members' serious gripes each week. Like Member 295 I had been in the profession for 40 years when I retired in May this year.

Life became a nightmare from 1999 when Howard introduced the GST and the bureaucrats took control of everything. What a disaster. Control without responsibility!"
