Always hard with these viral things to know who to acknowledge, but the brilliant Legend drink driving ad has crossed over to the campaign. The National Party welfare announcement as the Herald editorial acknowledges this morning ” needs the jobs first”. It’s not a comprehensive reform. It is shuffling around of names of benefits, work testing the mothers of one year olds- and all without a plan to actually create the jobs that will get people off benefits.
Since 2010 National have been promising there are 170,000 jobs going to be created, but they never come, instead we have an additional 60,000 people on benefits since they took office. Its seems the only jobs out there are John’s ghost jobs.
