Forget the ghost chips, you know people on welfare can't do your ghost jobs Mr Key
The latest bennie bash by National is pure evil Machiavellian genius. The working poor HATE beneficiaries with the sort of visceral hatred racists have towards people of a different race. Rather than blame the low wage economy caused by the right wing dismantling of Unions, the working poor are focused on those earning slightly less than them without having to in their minds eye work as hard as they do just to make ends meet. What is brilliant about bennie bashing by National is that it feeds on that visceral hatred so much so, that the working poor end up supporting the National Party. The irony of course is that the National Party represent the bankers, the farmers and the elites of NZ, their policy of enriching the rich at the cost of everyone else is 1000% contrary to the interests of the working poor, but by playing to their lesser angels, the working poor become blinded to the ultimate consequences to them of National Party policy.
Divide and rule has always been the weapon of choice for the undemocratic.
