Awatere Huata: Beneficiary and thief

Q: Has Donna Awatere Huata ever done an honest day's work in her life? Has she ever actually earned a dollar, or has she sucked off the state tit all her life?

A: She did once have a 'business' selling Maori stick games to government departments, but that's hardly work, is it? And hardly what you'd call 'earning' money. She's spent her whole life as a beneficiary of state largesse, and she thought she had an entitlement to it.

There's a metaphor there for something, isn't there?
