National KNEW their bennie bash breached Bill of Rights
Welfare reforms discriminatory, Attorney-General finds
National's flagship welfare reforms have been found to unfairly discriminate against 43,000 solo mums and dads. In a report just tabled in Parliament, Attorney-General Chris Finlayson says the reforms breach the Bill of Rights Act on three grounds by discriminating on the basis of sex and family and marital status. He finds the breaches cannot be justified under the Act.
In a windowless room beneath Parliament, the National Party creche once a month has a Bennie Bash Pinata strung up for the kids to play with. Each National Party child is given a 'Paula' batten and they bash the bennie pinata until they crack its head open to feast on all the creamy taxpayer benefits.
THEY KNEW IT WAS DISCRIMINATORY BUT DID IT ANYWAY! It just get's worse and worse doesn't it? After claiming the 'dream was over' this sanctimonious and pompous Minister then said in Parliament about her discrimination that National tried to hide by releasing the report late yesterday,
"I think that is a discrimination that most New Zealanders will see as being fair and reasonable".
WTF? Paula not only admits it is discrimination but she says most NZers would agree with it?
Well I don't agree with it Paula! I think it is disgusting and you are simply creating the next generation decimated by the effects of poverty! Your experience as a solo mother has given you no empathy just a smug self righteousness that justifies you passing discriminatory law that actually makes the lives of solo mother children WORSE! It is sadistic, it is cruel and it is out right discrimination, and they bloody well knew it!
Forcing the sick back to work, discrimination against solo mothers, damaging the welfare of those children, making beneficiaries leap through more work testing hoops in a 7.3% unemployment environment with the threat to cut the benefit altogether is a disgusting social policy aimed at being divisive to pit NZers against NZer and which will only cause more damage.
Can I also just salute the courage of the Attorney-General Chris Finlayson who has stood against the Government over the 3 strikes law by pointing out they were also against the Bill of Rights. Finlayson is a true patriot and despite the demands of his Party is prepared to stand up for the human rights of ALL NZers, not just those who voted for his party.
