In reply to David Garrett, or an essay on why Garrett should not approach his computer when pissed.
There are a number of reasons why Garrett’s seperate nation wet dream will never happen which I am going to print below. But before I do I am going to share with you the miracle cure to fix Northland and the rest of the country.
Despite the screeching and forced lamentation of the (largely employed by you and I) left wing in this country there are plenty of jobs for almost every able bodied man and woman currently not working.
In the main they will be jobs that they do not want, low paid, mundane, sometimes hard physically but paid employment all the same.
The number one excuse used by the indolent class is that these jobs are predominantly seasonal or temporary and the government has for many years imposed a stand down period which means that whilst you might be offered a three month contract that gets you off the bene, but once the temp contract is over you have to wait three months to get back on the bene.
So. The miracle cure.
Remove the stand down period, allow these citizens to do temp or seasonal work and then get back on the rock n roll straight away.
What about the cost I hear the smarter readers say. And yes, it will cost us more. But, if you can get a full time all year round scrounger into 3 or 4 or 6 months work through the year then that is a period where we might otherwise be paying them to not work.\
The other excuse used is that it is not enough to live on.
Working for families should have made that argument redundant and for those that have not yet knocked up or squeezed out a brat the benefit is pretty skinny anyway so any kind of work will be more than the dole.
Building a work habit is the single most important challenge facing all of us in Little England. Everything else is just bollocks.
Now then brothers, Northland.
A dirtly little secret in NZ is the number of men of Kiwi Dalmatian descent that spent time “helping” in the Balkans a few years ago during the unpleasantness.
Huge swathes of the Far North were settled by and are still inhabited by people with names ending in ICH. Agreed many of them blended with locals but they are still Dalmatian by temperament and armed to the teeth. They are not blighted by laziness either. Add that to the legions of ex-British special forces nutters in the Bay of Islands and I suspect any attempts to breakaway (bearing in mind I am replying to a nutter and do not for a minute believe the possibility is ever likely to happen) from the rest of the country would end in anything less than a three day bloodbath.
Mr Garrett, I humbly suggest you stick to inciting flame wars on that travel blog you frequent and leave the North alone.
Right now I have put the wee nutter in his place, fixed the unemployment problem and let slip the fact that many kiwis were slaughtering Muslims in the 90’s why don’t we have a go at fixing the degree trained barista problem.
Or not. Maybe tomorrow I will share with you the Skinner Normanton plan to fix the student debt problem.
