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.

This stuff should have stayed in the 90s-“dob in a dirty filthy bennie” ads on TV, ‘guests’ only allowed to stay a certain number of overnites per week at DPB recipients homes or a relationship in the nature of a marriage might be established and benefit cut.

Dark sadistic kiwis will reap what they sow one way or another with this bennie bashing. “Burn Shipley Burn” type demos will be back with extras. As will our old friends increased property crime, violence and living in cardboard boxes.

Why don’t middle class bennies on WFF get inspected? Oh thats right, the middle classes are “deserving” of income assistance.

No don't go giving them any ideas!
Since the apparent mega-popularity of National makes absolutely zero sense from a policy standpoint, it must then logically be due to the complete unpopularity of the Labour party. Helen Clark has left a seriously bitter taste in the mouths of NZers.
That, or my invasion of the body-snatchers theory.

Perhaps it would make sense if all recipients of state income were put under constant monitoring?

* ALL welfare clients

* Superannuitants

* ACC clients

* WFF (definitely - those Middle Class Baby Boomers are the worst bludgers of all!)

* Doctors, nurses, teachers, police, civil servants

Hmmmm... who else?

Oh yeah,

* Politicians.

Nah, just chuck anyone with an income under $40k ($70k for families) over a cliff. Is pretty much Brashkey policy, anyway.

A few months ago Paula Bennett was a guest columnist for the Sunday Star-Times, writing a column that amounted to 'I don't have a clue how to curb appalling child abuse statistics, please tell me'. It looks like she's adopted her party's line by declaring war on the parenting skills of the unworking poor, that while no kind of solution, it pleases uninformed bigots in election year.
