I see Matt McCarten’s been making shit up about the guy who broke the WINZ windows in Kaikohe because they wouldn’t give him a fourth food grant due to his refusing to see a budget advisor.
Sam is a 58-year-old invalid beneficiary. He was run over 20 years ago in a car accident. He lost an eye, an arm and a leg. Since then he’s spent his life in a wheelchair.
So….according to Matt the guy lost an arm, a leg and an eye 20 years ago when he got run over. However based on a photo in The Northern Advocate he clearly has two arms. Though the Northern Advocate seems to be a whole lot more accurate about Sam Kuha’s injuries, though I would not that he could swing a hammer pretty well with his ok arm.
Matt also said he took his budget to WINZ which is more bullshit – all he took were his bank statements and complained that they wouldn’t even look at them – quite right as a bank statement is not a budget, and the lazy prick couldn’t be arsed to do a proper one.
This guy has such a sense of entitlement it sickens me. He has a car that he doesn’t drive because it’s not warranted or registered – why doesn’t he sell the bloody thing then?
He owns his own home and the reason he has no money for food is that it goes on his mortgage and insurances! What gives him the right to suck off the taxpayer’s tit and get his house paid for, just because he was unlucky enough to be run over by a car 20 years ago?
If he was working at the time he’d get ACC of 80% of his gross wage, index-linked to inflation for life.
