Knock, Knock - who's there? Paula Bennett and the random search bennie bash Police,
So the answer to our welfare issue is random spot checks of all solo parents?
I don't like to point it out, but isn't forcing all solo parents to have random checks , actually criminalizing being a solo parent? How was water saving shower heads and power saving light bulbs political correctness gone mad, yet random searches of solo parents homes some how the new high point of enlightened social policy?
Does it seem to anyone else that we have reached the book burning part of Welfare reform, all the while allowing National to play their favorite game of suggesting 100% crazy while implementing 80% crazy so no one notices how crazy it all is.
Why not go the whole hog and have solo parents in stocks so that we can throw rotten vegetables at them in public squares. That way the well to do can feel smug AND the rotten vegetables can be scooped up by the dirty bennies so they'll have something other than booze and meth to feed their children with at night.
The bennie bashing hatred of the poor is reaching a new crescendo, who knew all it took was a smile and wave from a vacant grinning multi millionaire.
Sleepy Hobbits reap what they sow.
