This from paula bennett, around the discrimination identified by findlayson, in the beneficiary bashing measures introduced this week.
"I think that is a discrimination that most New Zealanders will see as being fair and reasonable."What's the bet if she was discriminated against she would be the first to jump up and down. bennett is an ex solo mum, of maori descent, who dragged herself up through the system, on a benefit, and when she reaches a place where she can help other with her experiences what does she do? She puts the boot in. She says it was good enough for me but not for you - the saddest aspect of this is that bennett is just being used anyway and she can't even see it. The worse sort of hypocrite is someone like bennett who takes off the system and denies others the same opportunity.
