Cows and rent books — 2 Comments

  1. Crazy isn’t it. I expect that happens here as well. Although the only time I claimed social welfare, you needed a degree to fill in all the forms. In aboriginal communities in the NT, they’ve replaced cash payments with food vouchers to stop the men (and the women actually) blowing the lot on booze and petrol. Perhaps food stamps would be a better alternative to providing monthly betting cash.

  2. There’s constitutional stuff here about the “family”. Abstract concepts sometimes come before the reality of a woman getting a thumping if she dares raise a voice of objection. The lady concerned arrived here once heavily bruised, she cannot even get the tenancy of the house because his name is on the rent book
