First it was the Japs, now it is the Poms, clamping down on welfare for migrants

Kiwis moan about their “entitlements” being eroded by Labour in Australia when Helen Clark sold them down the river.

But migrant welfare bludgers are causing problems all around the world and just a few weeks ago the Japanese moved to limit entitlement to welfare.

Now the Poms are doing it too…a signal perhaps for Paula Bennett to look at toughening up our welfare eligibility rules too.

Migrants will be banned from receiving any benefits until they have contributed to Britain, under government plans to limit access to handouts.

David Cameron today announced the period for which European migrants can claim benefits is to be halved and recruitment agencies are to be banned from advertising jobs exclusively overseas.

But Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith revealed plans to go even further to secure EU agreement to stop benefits being paid to people who have not contributed to to the state, raising the prospect of handouts being linked to tax payments.

The Conservatives are forcing through further measures to deter so-called ‘benefit tourists’.

In January, the Government introduced rules that meant European migrants had to wait three months before they could claim out-of-work benefits – and then could only claim for a maximum of six months.    Read more »

Anti-semitism rising

While Campbell Live meticulously catalogues every Palestinian death as he openly weeps he and the mainstream media are whipping the masses into a frenzy of out and out anti semitism, Jews around the world are afraid to leave their homes.

Just yesterday we saw hundreds of protesters again infesting the streets of Auckland, and again the US Embassy issued a warning to US citizens to avoid the area. This is New Zealand…such is the style of protest now being promulgated by Islamists and their enablers like John Minto and the Mana party.

We can at least be thankful that so far we haven’t had the type of anti-semitic rage that is enveloping Europe.

This is the problem when you allow immigration from intolerant nations and people.

EU leaders are stunned but are starting to speak out.

The foreign ministers of Germany, France and Italy have spoken out against a disturbing wave of violent anti-Semitic attacks across Europe in the wake of the Gaza crisis.

In Berlin, police had to step in to protect an Israeli tourist couple at the weekend after protestors turned on them when they spotted the man’s yarmulke. Demonstrators reportedly charged towards the couple shouting “Jew! We’ll get you!”

In Paris, hundreds of protestors have attacked synagogues, smashed the windows of Jewish shops and cafes, and set several alight, including a kosher grocery store which reportedly burned to the ground.

In the Netherlands, the home of the chief rabbi has been attacked with stones twice in one week.   Read more »

Now, if you add the score, that would be a lot braver.

Mine:  Germany, 1 – 0, no extra time needed.

So, did the World Cup catch you in the end?   Have games like the Dutch and German high scoring games converted you from the view the game is too boring?  Has this been the best WC in modern times?

Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is a face from the past.

The face of a woman who survived the Holocaust and is still alive today. Her story is so bizarre that it is hard to believe that it is fact not fiction as the irony of what happened is just incredible.

An 80-year-old Jewish woman has revealed the astonishing story of how she came to front a Nazi party propaganda campaign in the 1930s after her baby picture was selected by the party as the “ideal Aryan” child.

- http://www.itv.com/news

Aryan:  In colloquial English, the word has been adopted in accordance with Nazi racial theory’s appropriation of the term to describe persons corresponding to the “Nordic” physical ideal of Nazi Germany (the “master race” ideology).[n 1]
