ZenTiger You can't live in a ham sandwich

Farrar reminded me of another Cullenism today, with the arrogant finance Minister announcing "You can't eat a house".

Yes Michael, you can't eat a house. But you can't live in a ham sandwich either.

People do think beyond their house when thinking of retirement. It's just the government has been pathetic at helping them save - more concerned with taking too much tax, increasing government spending by 33%, and holding onto surpluses rather than hand some money back.

Don't take away shelter just to provide food.

If Cullen was in a bar and talked to any one person the way he talks to 4 million he'd get a smack in the face.

None of the guys would take his lip either.
