HMAS "Aspiration" founders on Privatised Health Care

DH's faith in Aspirationalism has been rocked to the core by revelations emanating from the region of her wallet.

With take-home pay of $720 a week, rent of $313 a week to kick in in a months time, and the shock discovery that her monthly prescription meds, including one non-PBS item that must be imported, will cost $240, medical gap fees averaging at about $100 a month, and health insurance of $106 a month, not to mention weekly transport costs, phones and mobiles and ISPs, DH has been forced to face up to the grim reality: There will be no gambolling at Cap d'Antibes again this year.

No matter. You can't keep a good Aspirationalist down for long.

It is still possible to aspire to seeing Public Tenant No 1 evicted from his Kirribilli sinecure.
