Time for some good old-fashioned beneficiary bashing. Just so you know who's bludging off you, here's a wee pictorial essay showing some of the country's highest paid beneficiaries:

Several hundred thousand middle-income bludgers -- one-third of the country sucking off the state tit: NZ's most numerous beneficiaries.

The Two Jims' own cash machine: NZ's most unrewarding beneficiary. $138,000,000 so you and I can help "the little guy."

The Clark Government: beneficiaries of the Big Lie that unemployment has been drastically reduced.

Radio New Zealand: proud supporters of the culture of sucking off the state tit.

Town Planners: NZ's most destructive beneficiaries.

Consultants and mega-law firms: NZ's least self-aware beneficiaries.

Political parties with their hands in your pocket: NZ's most unashamed beneficiaries.

The country's mayors: NZ's most lack-lustre beneficiaries.

The Prime Minister: NZ's highest paid beneficiary.

Team New Zealand: arguably the country's most undeserving and under-performing beneficiaries.

New Zealand's beneficiary culture is alive and well. Sucking off the state tit is a lifestyle choice: a choice being made every day by hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders who put their hands deep into your pocket.


  1. I think that the CEs of various departments earn substantially more than Clark, even taking into account her very expensive travel.
