Farrar sums up Green welfare policy succinctly

Arts, lifestyle and travel blogger, David Farrar, sums up The Greens welfare policy rather succinctly:

  • You should be able to be on the unemployment benefit for 15+ years and never ever be required to turn up to a job interview or even look for a job
  • If like Metiria you have lied in order to get more money from the taxpayer, you should not be required to pay the money back or face any sanctions for lying in order to get more money   
  • The in-work tax credit for working parents should be given to parents not working
  • Welfare fraud is noble and should not be condemned or even discouraged by MPs but all other sorts of fraud are bad.
  • Fathers should be able to not be named on birth certificates without sanction, and escape paying even a cent to their children’s upbringing, leaving the entire bill to taxpayers
  • You should get a benefit even if your partner is a millionaire so long as you have been living together for less than three years
  • If you are diagnosed with a sickness you can claim a sickness benefit for life without ever needing to get a follow up medical certificate to prove you are still sick

Vote Labour, get this.

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.
