Tips and rumours

Bib Brother watches over News? ... whispers of more job cuts in the Murdoch empire ... new laws obstruct DIY super (and who wants life insurance anyway?) ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Is Big Brother watching News? … Is it true that cameras have been installed in some News Limited offices, ostensibly to collect footage for a) the company’s Christmas party or b) for display at News’ HQ in Sydney (staff reckon they’ve been given both reasons)? Tips is intrigued. If you know more, get in touch. And Crikey does love a good Christmas party invite or anecdote (not to mention a good hamper), so if the season has brought something tip-worthy your way, please let us know.

    The fees involved in running a self-funded super are huge. First the Financial planner takes his yearly share of $$ thousands, and of course the accountants want a double whammy by way tax assessment and mandatory audit. That involves $$thousands yet again. And of course the fund managers want their cut as well. That’s the reason why SFSF are/have become extremely complex and costly for the general public, middle men need to be fed, and the government always seem to be willing to bend over backwards to help the finance industries as witnessed by the GFC.
