Politicians and their Pensions

While many Australian have had their pensions stolen from them by dishonest Trustees who are protected by corrupt Public Servants why should the people we elect to govern and protect us  care?

Politicians receive generous pensions for life at the taxpayers expense.

Julia Gillard if she retires after the next election and after only 15 years in Parliament will receive a pension of around $319,900 per annum.

Wayne Swan after 18 years in Parliament will receive a pension of $277,500 per annum.
