Quotation for Today – 23/07/2017

Giles Coren at The Times defines, tongue in cheek, but tellingly

University education — Something that could feasibly be kept “free to all” as long as access was restricted to young people intellectually equipped to benefit from it, but which has to be paid for with whopping fees and crippling debt now that any damn fool can go, and usually does.

Q&A – Mutch interviews welfare cheat

July 23, 2017

On TVNZ’s Q&A the welfare fraudster is being given a platform by TVNZ to make her excuses. Jessica Mutch is currently interviewing self-confessed liar and welfare cheat Turei. The ‘interview’ if you can call the fawning by Mutch an interview is nothing more than Turei telling her own version of events and spinning her fairy-tale. The woman is totally unrepentent and blames the system. She seems to be overlooking other facts that have emerged this week.

Follow up comments on the programme were just as awful. Claire Robinson then set about traducing male MPs and claiming the reaction as been sexist.

More on this later.
