Is it really too hard for people to bother to feed their kids?

Last night in the debate David Cunliffe delivered a sermon about starving children and how was the messiah who could deliver them from starvation.

He ignored the fact that Labour was in government for 9 years before National’s 6 years and that it is doubtful that so-called child poverty is entirely the fault of National.

There is a letter to the editor in the Herald this morning that looks into these so-called starving children that their parents can’t afford to feed.



The problem we have developed with the ever expanding welfare state is that people now expect the state to do almost everything for them, including it seems feeding their kids.

Basically though we need to instil in people that if you can’t feed ’em then you shouldn’t breed ’em.

The whole child poverty argument can never be solved because the lobbyists who push it have decided on a measure that will always define people in poverty no matter how much they earn.

This argument like many others that are the favourites of the left is essentially a fraud.

If the opposition ever gained the treasury benches they will quietly drop any reference to child poverty.
