I’m not surprised . Winz are a disgraceful organisation. After all, they give away much of the money I earn to drop-outs and dead-beats.
At school, they said those who stuff around, intimidate other students, and smoke drugs and steal would end up badly in life. Seems not, Winz looks after them quite nicely while they supplant their winz incomes with proceeds from crime.
Of course, some people genuinely need support and that’s ok. But, why should a family of dropkicks be able to have 10 children and whine poverty? The whole social welfare system has been perverted.
How can someone in need of a WINZ grant be driving a large 2007 Chrysler sedan? These go for $38000 to $50,000?
If you are so on the bones of your bum that you need state support, wouldn’t you sell that and replace it if necessary, with a vehicle in the $5000 range?
But, WINZ will not give travel assistance to fathers trying to access their children? Oh that’s right gummint departments are allowed to discriminate against middle aged white males. See you at the dole office bro.
The WINZ case manager who authorised this payment should have their arse well and truly booted.
Not really, this payment was not a grant – it was a loan, given under WINZ policies.WINZ is not required to check if the person needed the car due to illness, disability or employment. It doesn’t even check to see if the person owned the car or had a licence. It doesn’t check to see wither the car was registered or warranted – or even if the driver was drunk. Don’t blame the case manager for following legislation and policy – blame management for lying about their own procedures without rectifying anything.
“But, WINZ will not give travel assistance to fathers trying to access their children?”
And nor should they!, it is MY fucking money these pricks are giving out and fathers have no right to my money just so they can see their kids, they could always try getting a fucking job and paying for it themselves.
“Oh that’s right gummint departments are allowed to discriminate against middle aged white males. See you at the dole office bro.”
I also find this comment infuriating, just where do you get the idea that you are entitled to MY money D4J?
You claim to be a right winger yet it seems to me that you are no better than the parasites who sit on their arse all day (Phool) vote Labour and march along to the WINZ office every week for more of my money.
I want the pricks at WINZ to discriminate, I want there to be a rigorous in depth interview before ANY of my money is given out, I have NO problem with the few genuine cases where people have fallen on bad times through no fault of their own but it must be reserved for the truly needy and it must be a temporary measure.
I was talking about trying to support fathers back into the community once released from prison so they can contribute to a meaningful, responsible and rewarding relationship with their often alienated children. Return to the work force not back to a life of crime. This would save the country millions and cut down the shameful recidivism rates but I wouldn’t expect a demented drop kick like yourself big bruv to ever understand such a common sense concept. Your money is best in your wallet or maybe or fat gob!
big blouse, where is your blog you snake? Sort this out for once and all eh mate!
Dad4J I am all for fathers playing a role in their kids lives but there does come a point where some kids are better off without their fathers in their lives because of the negative influence on them. Don’t you think?
Yes vulnerable children should be protected from dangerous men. I visit prisoners every week who regret their actions , however , when released without support mechanisms in place they fall to connect with their family much to the detriment of the kids. WINZ squanders money and so the cycle is never broken and little Johnny jumps on welfare as soon as he is eligible.
There must be a better way?
big bruv the so be it attitude will see us overtake the US with incarceration statistics. Build them prisons, now that’s smart,name one Helengrad and build it on a volcano. Give them underground heating and KFC, now that’s fucking socialism.
You simply cannot grasp it can you, the reason people are in prison is because they have broken the law yet you seem to think that locking up crims is a bad thing.
We all get one chance in life and those who fuck it up should not expect the rest of us to pay any more than we already do for their mistake.
You really are beginning to sound like a socialist, the “system” is not to blame for people being incarcerated, if the bastards did not break the law then they would not be locked up in the first place.
