If you are bitching about welfare fraud in relation to Metiria’s courageous confession you don’t understand the words ‘welfare’ or ‘fraud’. Stealing to feed your family, clothe and house them isn’t theft – it’s a spectacular failure of draconian social policy.
If National would like to attack Metiria over her courageous admission and call it ‘welfare fraud’, we can just ask Paula Bennett.
Because there are all sorts of interesting allegations that look far less noble than need when it comes to Paula isn’t there?
Fascinating that Paula won’t call for Metiria’s resignation, why do you think that is?
Oh and where’s Todd Barclay? If you want to rage against corruption, surely those attacking Metiria will be in even fuller throated denouncement of that fiasco.
The Greens policy for welfare changes everything, those beneficiaries who have been shat upon and treated like scum for being vulnerable have every reason on the planet to vote Green.
The policy is as honest and courageous as Metiria’s admissions and she’s even offered to pay it all back.
As a political force, the Greens are back.
