Lifestyle welfare

Here is the Boxing Day Dominion Post editorial. I was pleased to see the writer using the term 'lifestyle' not only because it is factual, but because it labels the group needing attention as distinct from all beneficiaries.

My response was published this morning (apologies for the unintentional sizing inconsistency).

Indeed we do - and we need to accept the only lasting solution to the problem is the also the most obvious and simplest to implement:

zero all benefits and the minimum wage

What's best is that zero-ing benefits can be done in two or three days by an order-in-council. It really is that simple.
