Well this is a good suggestion

Accept help or lose dole – Stuff.co.nz

The Government has welcomed the Rotorua mayor’s suggestion that beneficiary parents must contact welfare agencies to collect their money.

Now I think this has merit, but I can’t help wondering what the government’s response would have been had National suggested it. You can imagine the press releases pouring forth and Jordan’s whining about it being sad to see National attempting to bash beneficiaries again and it being a “political statement, a dog whistle to the middle class about “beneficiaries who are gobbling your tax dollars” while they bash their kids.

Oh wait he already did that about National’s work for the dole policy…..to use Jordan’s own words, this will be dressed up with “snuggly nice rhetoric about helping people out of poverty, etc, but the reality is simply demonstrated by the” fact that Maori are over represented in the “bashing your kids” statistics.

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.
