An interesting night on the #QandA panel was seen tonight when the ABC did a classic move of stacking a solid portion of their desk with anti-Government supporters seeking controversy. And they were not to be disappointed. Far and away, the most entertaining part was the questions, which is what we all watch it for. And tonight two of the big questions made us roll our eyes in wonder, and they are what everyone on Twitter and Facebook are talking about…
1. Do you believe it is fair that people of the younger generation are struggling to afford a home, while wealthy retirees living in multi-million dollar homes are claiming pensions? I’m not saying they should have to leave their homes, but why should I be effectively subsidising somebody else’s inheritance when instead of claiming a pension, these retirees could take out a reverse mortgage?
2. Elaine Wziontek asked: Miriam Margolyes, last time, when you were on Q&A in 2012 you said you liked Julia Gillard who was “fascinating”, while Bob Hawke was “ravishing”. Any similar thoughts on our current Prime Minister?
