Talking about waste and abuse inherent in state welfare systems (referred to in a following essay) this article from today's DomPost, about the huge increase in the number of car-related payments made to beneficiaries, reminded me of something I was told last year.
This company is contracted by the state to tow away vehicles. When the owner turns up to collect said car they have to pay three or four hundred dollars. In the case of a beneficiary a quick call is made to WINZ and a payment is arranged.
How crazy is that? The state contracts to confiscate the car and then pays to return it.
One reason I won’t support a republic
