Foreign Minister Julie Bishop

So the Foreign Minister doesn't know the full intricacies of the government's superannuation policies.

So what?

It was indeed, as Julie Bishop said, a "gotcha" moment yesterday when Melbourne radio entertainer Neil Mitchell demanded she explain the government's transition to retirement policy -- under which people nearing retirement can move money from their super account into a pension account without the earnings being taxed -- and how it would be affected by the budget superannuation tax concession changes.
