If you want to see who’s really controlling things, follow the money, profits from big oil, multinationals and just about every business has made good profits coming out of covid lockdowns. The people really hurting are the working class with higher mortgages and crashing super funds and no pay increases because well, that would be inflationary…….see the irony?

Not even close. Biden has managed to ruin everything he has touched within 2 years. Obama was right when he said "never underestimate Joe's ability to screw things up".
How much has Joe actually been allowed to achieve?
Zero beyond what those Republican Senators will allow to pass, so far it’s one infrastructure bill that they supported, the other +$4 Trillion of desired programs died because they would never be supported by the Republicans.

Unlike our Westminster system, a vote in the US senate has to pass by at least 10 votes……..The Dems and Biden never stood a chance with a 50 Dem & 50 Rep house split. Nothing they do under Biden’s presidency will matter because from here to eternity nothing will never pass the senate without huge Republican support and that’s never going to happen, ever.

Thats really odd about the Hawthorn area, in fact it looks like its all of the inner east. But everywhere else is pretty much still $2.2x for 98.

Lock in the price now if you have the Sleven app.

Going to create some interesting workplace dramas between managers and staff about working from home given the price of fuel effecting how much it costs to commute to the office.

There's a big anti WFH mentality in Melbourne, I was in the office all the way through the lockdowns and we weren't complying with any of the restrictions, not that I particularly cared but good luck trying to work from home in that environment.

Also the push from the high rise landlords and inner city cafes wanting everyone back in the CBD offices.

Curious to see what starts happening on those fronts come September.

Anyone with a company car and fuel card probably couldn't give a rat's ***.
