Medicare Taskforce in Bega, Merimbula
$135 out of pocket yesterday, after seeing a visiting specialist. I wonder how really low income-but-not-qualifying-for-a pension-card-etc people cope!
They generally avoid going to doctors and probably die earlier than they would have if they had better health care.
Saves on paying pensions later then, hey… or am I being too cynical? The situation calls for it.
‘Ban imported raw prawns’
Biosecurity is not a joke, foreign prawns should be banned.
Of course they should be banned, especially from Asia, we live on an island, there are prawns all around us.
Despite the question behind toxicity, freshness and contamination we should certainly be mindful of who's suffering and being exploited through the production and trade of "cheap, tasteless" imports. Australian owned and grown is how it should be - for everything. Not just prawns.
Absolutely. Ban them plus that cheap imported basa. Awful stuff.
I only ever buy Australian fish and prawns. Will buy other fish from NZ but no-where else. Would rather go without!
I wouldn't buy NZ fish or vegetables. They import from China, process, then call them produce of NZ.
Yep don’t eat them have you seen the conditions they’re farmed in wouldn’t eat the basa either.
Absolutely! We’ve all been singing Girt by Sea for so long - there has got to be some benefit! Put some real fisherman in the DPI and we could even get some workable fishing quotas!
Stop people buying their bait from supermarkets.
