According to Basher Bennett “the dream is over” for solo parents on a benefit.
What dream is that Paula?
The “dream” of struggling to pay your rent and feed your kids?
The “dream” of being a target for every bigot on talkback?
The “dream” of having your personal details leaked to the press by a bullying minister?
Or is it the dream you had Paula? You know, the one where you wake up one day and you’ve become a minister on $245,000 of taxpayers’ cash a year and all you have to do to keep it is kick other solo mums in the face.
National. The government that does nothing to save your job and then blames you.
