I think this is the benefit the LNP designed - to the ruling class. There is no point petitioning them on anything public. They and the entire system they act as the executives for must be done with.

The system is "working as expected". They are not incompetent, they are vicious and cruel/ People are there to service the ruling class, and they will be punished until they fall into line.

Absolutely, it is a return to the Deserving and Non-Deserving poor. The Australia social security system, through Centrelink and non-governmental bodies such as the job network, has been redesigned to punish those needing supports, not to provide an adequate safety net.

Well, Maybe everyone should just sit down and discuss the needs of the poor over brunch.

Participants, who can have a child as young as six months, are required to report their attendance at a compulsory activity, often story time or playgroup, as well as report their fortnightly income, even if they are not in work. Failure to do results in a suspension of their parenting payment.

There is no reason why they don't bring back those horrendous prison hulks of England for the poor, in case the poor houses fill up. That will teach those disgusting poor people for not having a go.
