Goff: Pay dole even if partner still working

Phil GoffGoff: Pay dole even if partner still workingPressure on the Government to offer more help to the families of the recently unemployed is intensifying, with the Labour Party rewriting policy to give more generous assistance to wage and salary earners made redundant as a result… [NZ Herald Politics]

Phil Goff’s mad ramblings are becoming increasingly like a Mad Magazine….oh wait!

His latest incredibly stupid idea is to give the dole to people even if their partner is still working. The big lie in all of this is how precisely does Labour expect to pay for this when they left this country with a legacy of a decade of deficits.

It is sheer insanity to continue borrowing and hoping like Labour suggests.

One thing is clear though. Phil Goff is obviously the Alfred E. neuman of New Zealand politics.
