    Yes, everyone is strapped for cash. Personally I blame the hardly necessary layers of beaurocracy who seem to exist only to line their pockets and create costly rules to justify their own existance. Think how much the hospitals would have saved if they hadn't spent all those billions on consultants in the last four years
    I agree we have layers of waste, but supporting more waste is hardly the answer.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    How is a community garden, and trying to get people off the **** and into doing stuff wasteful?
    Disclaimer, I know alot of people here in Otaki where it's more beneficial for them to stay at home instead of working. Adding in housing support, single mum support or whatever, community card benefits etc, alot of them are getting as much as me doing a 37.5 hour week. Regardless, most of it goes in landlords pockets who up the rent because they know WINZ will pay it

    So over 8 weeks we are going to make “Pillars of Society” out of 10 Mongrel Mob Members for the princely sum of $2.75M?

    I wonder what will happen when you wake up?

    Do you have any ideas about government spending? Or just choose the things that catch your eye.

    And that's over 4 years, so presumably multiple 8 week courses.

    Just think how many houses could be built if we stopped paying for emergency housing

    I have a very good idea about “Government Spending” and “Government Waste”.

    And one lot of waste, doesn’t justify another lot of waste, any more than two wrongs, justify a right.

    But somehow you saying me thinking this starting a programme to hopefully help a few people is wrong. And somehow I don't want hospitals working according to you.

    What is your agenda here B.M? Promote stuff and Noone can discuss the merits and cons?
