It’s not your house, Ctd

In the Herald today there is a story of crass entitle-itis:

Because she’s approaching 55, Connon has been told to expect to be assigned a one-bedroom unit. But as an epileptic prone to seizures, she worries about ending up in an upstairs unit. And she can’t see how she will fit a lifetime’s collection of knick-knacks and memories into a smaller property.

“It would be like putting a size 10 girdle on a size 26. I don’t see why I should have to move into a smaller place. It’s not my fault I can’t work.”

Nor is she happy about the constraints of an apartment block. “You’re not allowed kids, or pets or plants. I said ‘you can get ****ed’. I need a three-bedroom home with a section.”

For a start it isn’t your home, dear…it’s ours.

Secondly after 30 years of living it paying at most $50 a week in rent you should have clawed your way out of state dependence.

Once again we have the Herald focussing on people who think the welfare system is a trampoline rather than a safety net. They are pimping the poor again.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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