For three years this country endured 9 long years of 3D politics.
DENY DELAY DENIGRATE
We have enjoyed three years of C3 politics
CONFESS CO-OPERATE COMPLIMENT
Apparently, if the polls are to be believed, the electorate still enjoys the latter.
Reading through the reactions to the welfare adjustments announced in Wellington, it looks as though the Socialists may well be bleeding to death.
Most of what Key and Bennett announced at the Nat Party Conference should have been done years ago and IMO it should be extended to all benefits, as I see welfare as a hand up, not a hand out.
Too often the media, when giving coverage to societal problems, portray the standout facet common to most, as a degree of dysfunction facilitated by a welfare outcome that is poorly utilised, abused or misdirected. The changes outlined at the weekend are steps to address that and the electorate is being given enough advance notice to enable an informed vote.
Clearly, the mob at the 'substandard' are craving a return to the 3 D politics.
