That Shearer guy is on fire but sadly just doing the same and expecting a different outcome is not a go.
Welfare has trapped too many families and their innocent vulnerable Children in an economic world that socialist shrills call poverty but I call insufficiency of resources already provided being directed to those vulnerable in the home.
We all know how The Clark Government wanted to expand the numbers of voters who depended for all their incomes or a substantial topup so a call, "dont vote for those Nats or their allies" as they will attack your entitlements, secured a locked in voter base at election time.
Welfare should be targetted, reduced in availability and replaced as a goal not expanded.
But what does Shearer propose, further delivery of welfare to children turning up at school hungry in the form of Breakfast.
That will be a big success, not. However it will free up a few dollars for drugs, the pokies, booze, Sky TV, Videos and the other absorbent things that sitting on your arse all day can access.
Any family who allow a child to arrive at school hungry needs intervention and soon, as it is about pride, budgeting, education and self-respect, all things that socialism and its love affair with expanding welfare ignores in its quest for a voter base.
