Whenever former Prime Minister Paul Keating is in the news then I listen or read about what he has to say because I will be eternally grateful for the superannuation scheme he created and introduced.
His latest comments on the Grattan Institute Report suggested scrapping plans to raise compulsory super payments from 9.5 per cent to 12 percent and raising the retirement age to 70 are interesting.
Mr Keating suggested that Grattan Institute’s Chief Executive John Daley had a "miserable view" of the world.
BONZA organised a high school reunion around 10 years ago and we had 600 fellow high school Boomers attend..just for the one school Indooroopilly High in Brisbane but it was great to invite 10 odd years of ex-students as you saw faces from the years before and after your year..ex army cadet leaders, prefects and sportsmen and woman who made school life so vibrant. Ex teachers were also invited and many were cheered as they spoke to the crowd.
I really enjoyed it and recommend it to you all..gather some ex classmates and reminisce to your hearts content.

Thousands of you were upset by this picture of a lady allegedly attacked by staff in a nursing home that we placed on our FaceBook page and expressed your outrage.
There will never be a trial as she has dementia but I think we all saw a little of ourselves in this and have some concern for the future.
There will have to be repercussions..hopefully a Federal inquiry into the aged care industry and as an advocacy for all things about Boomers, BONZA encourages you to talk about how wrong it is to friends, family, social media and letters to the editor of your local media outlet....don't forget you members of parliament and don't give up..its your future so make a difference.
