The Children's Commissioner estimates there are 270,000 Kiwi children living in poverty
Bollocks. Nothing but thieving dole bludgers mismanaging taxpayer money.
Something I can not get my head around is why such a scheme is required at all in NZ. We spray $zillions of taxpayer wedge into the bludgers on the dole, DPB, Working for Welfare, with top ups like accommodation allowances and grants for wheels, smartphones and flat screen tellys. They have every social engineering agency at the ready to provide assistance on my dime.
No doubt the booze, tobacco and gambling barons are well fed from my taxpaying wallet, but still the left has manufactured a vote winning crisis around child poverty and the like.
