Was talking to an old school mate. He said his parents were coming to stay here for 3-6 months or something. I asked why? He said they had to do it to continue claiming the pension and some other Centrelink benefits. His parents have millions in property overseas (one of them is a huge freaking shopping centre), don't even live in this country (apparently they can't stand it here) and never sold them when they immigrated over years ago and he joked at how broken the system was. I didn't see any humour in it. What type of ridiculous system is this - isn't the government able to check this stuff? My tax dollars is going to this rubbish.
