Well, WordPress just ate a post, so fuckit. I am tired.
Long story short: Paula Bennett, Minister for Social Development and Employment, gets pissy that two solo mothers are making noise about training allowance cuts.
Paula Bennett responds by releasing confidential information about these women’s incomes.
Ooh, sick burn, Paula. You sure triumphed over the forces of raising-children-on-your-own-while-studying.
Too bad the Cabinet Manual doesn’t seem to concur, and citing the Privacy Commission’s website as a backup? Not the best idea you ever had because if there’s one thing bloggers love, it’s being able to just check things online.
End result? You want to have a petty little flamewar, Paula, get a fucking blog and don’t use your position as a fucking Minister of the Crown to bully people into silence.
