Comment of the Day

Comment of the DayComment of the Day comes from No Minister and a comment by Lindsay Mitchell.

This is crux of the whole matter that many, especially those from the left, are missing.

The problem with New Zealand is clear. Our Welfare System has come by almost all parties to be seen as an “entitlement”. This is a false premise and one which may take decaeds to erase if at all so ingrained into the thinking of the vast majority.

Our welfare system that was once a safety net, became a hammock for for some and now for other has become a trampoline.

The sad thing is that this government and I expect others may well start adding a trapeze and additional safety nets as well as cushioned side mats to the system.

Instead we should be removing all that crap and having hard solid concrete around the safety net.
