Stop clowning with allowances

Stop clowning with allowances

The salaries, allowances and superannuation of politicians are always defended with the old adage, "if you pay peanuts, you will always get monkeys."

In light of the current saga in the South Australian Parliament, in relation to allowances and perks, I would like to know what rate we are paying, because we seem to have attracted clowns.

It is supposed to be a parliament focused on the needs of the people, not a circus.

Get on with governing the state and making relevant and responsible decisions.

LOOKING FOR NORMAN RADICAN

Norman Radican is a pivotal person in my life. I was an exchange student in his care.

I have been trying to find him for years. I was 16, I am now 56.

Any information about him would be appreciated.
