The speed with which Jacinda has flagrantly ignored the call of every single NGO poverty organisation in NZ to lift benefits by Christmas has been so swift and so total that beneficiaries have more chance of getting a benefit increase from Santa than the Prime Minister of New Zealand???
Let me get this straight
The first step of this second term Labour Government was to protect a racist drug law and their second step is to leave the poor hungry at Christmas?
Sure, that’s ‘transformative’ but not what we were expecting.
The total lack of political courage beyond symbolic gestures like an increase in sick days and Matariki as a public holiday so as to not spook Labour’s new National Party mates is already becoming tedious.
The Greens have warbled something about blah blah blah in relation to this issue but seeing as they sold themselves out for a bunch of cheap baubles, they can shut the fuck up.
Why vote Labour if they rule for National?
Good to see that beneficiaries will get more help this Christmas from Santa Claus than Labour.
