Te Radar takes on Don Brash's beneficiary bashing this morning, and once again shows that sometimes humour is the best response. But it's not just funny, it's also pointy - for example, this bit:
To be fair, the scheme greatly reduced the numbers of unemployed up until the early 1980s. The only difference was it wasn't called "work for the dole", it was called the Post Office, or the Railways.
I do find it rather curious that those advocating work-for-the-dole are the same people who opposed these government "makework" schemes. If it was a bad idea then, why is it suddenly a good idea now?
