Is regional Australia being ignored?

The federal election has highlighted the debate over city versus the bush with the two Independents claiming that regional Australia has been ignored by the two major parties for too long.

It is acknowledged that the cities are the economic engines of the country but regional Australia is an integral part of this machine.

Do you think regional Australia is being ignored?

Voters may have gone to the polls last weekend but Australia is still waiting to find out who will govern.

A handful of independents now have the power to decide who will lead our country and influence policy-making over the next three years.

Do you have faith in the independents, their policy agendas and their ability to form a stable government? Or should Australians go back to the polls?

Women driving men crazy

Apparently men dread hearing their wife say “Can I drive?”. A recent study of 3,000 men revealed that more than a third feel unsafe when their partner is driving.

One in 10 say they have been forced to grab the wheel while others spend a large part of the journey gripping the edges of their seat.

One in five men said they could never relax when their partner drove.

Is this fear based on fact or are men just not comfortable with losing control?

As the election campaign nears the end, National Seniors is asking who will you be voting for and why?

Is there anything else that could change your mind in the last week of campaigning?

The Coalition announced a policy this week that would help people aged 50 plus back into the workforce.

If elected, it will offer employers a financial incentive of $3,250 for every older worker hired for a minimum of six months.

Labor is pushing its economic record with particular emphasis on getting Australia through the global financial crisis which saved jobs.

Have either of the major parties struck a chord with seniors and which policies are resonating?
