Looks like Working for [Other Peoples] Families is in trouble

From the Herald this morning we find that Working for [Other Peoples] Families has hit a spot of bother.

No, not from the right but from the left.

The Government has been forced into a court battle to stop beneficiary families making claim to $3000 a year under the Working for Families package.

In a landmark case, the Child Poverty Action Group has won the right to take legal action over Government policies it says discriminate against the 250,000 New Zealand children who have at least one parent on a benefit. 

Typical fucking socialists, not satisfied with a burgeoning welfare state they now want to extend the new state benefits of the middle class working to those already on benefits.In effect giving them a benefit for not working.

Bizzarely the Human Rights Review Tribunal ruled the group can legally challenge the exclusion of beneficiaries from a new payment which gives families an extra $60 a week from April.  The Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the grounds of being a beneficiary.

Looks like Liar-bour has told another porky, this time about the cost of Working for [Other People] Families.

The new name for this policy make well have to be "NOT Working for Families".

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
