word 'deception' is defined in the dictionary to mean to "hoodwink"
or "mislead". There would be no
government agency more adept at employing deception than Work and
successful employment of deception is almost impossible to detect -
to actually pin point. Work and Income NZ use deception all the time.
Experienced staff will make misleading statements to delude a person
into believing that he or she is receiving all the assistance to
which they are entitled. More often than not the one making an
application for assistance is entitled to that assistance. But by the
time he leaves the office the case manager knows that the application
will be declined. And the destitute, disabled, or unemployed person
will go quietly home to wait expectantly for a letter from his ever
so helpful case manager saying that his application has been
accepted. In fact there is only about a 7% chance of his application
most beneficiary's upon receiving notification declining their
request for help are so disillusioned, so depressed and unhappy in
their poverty that they are unable to question Work and Income's
decision. They are too weak spiritually to
apply for a review. And those that do will more than likely be
all the hassle, that is, after being mentally and emotionally beaten
by this government organisation into submission, they will sometimes
sink into a deeper depression. Many will drink or gamble to relieve
that depression. Many couples whose
relationship was held together by love and respect is eroded. He will
feel that he has failed to support his family. Yet in his heart he
knows that Work and Income NZ could have, and should have assisted
his wife and family. He will be forever resentful toward the
government because he cannot, or does not know how to fight against
this type of spiritual wickedness.
fact there is really no way to fight and win against the present evil
determination of those in power to deny the majority of New
Zealanders a good, healthy and comfortable lifestyle. He does not
understand that he is up against a worldly system which is designed
to keep the ordinary bloke and his family in a perpetual
state of need.
jails are filled to overflowing. Many of these men and women took on
Work and Income NZ and lost the battle to obtain a fair deal. To say
that there is no money is a fallacy. New Zealand is awash with money.
All one has to do is look around and believe what the eye sees and
not what someone on a $200,000 a year plus salary wants you to
this government was put into power by the majority expecting that all

have spoken to many people from all walks of life in respect of Work
and Income NZ's tactics. All, without exception, have 'thrown
up their hands in horror' at the blatant disregard these
people have for the health and well-being of New Zealanders.
the Service Centre Manager responsible for cancelling Sheryl's
medically approved disability transport allowances had been working
for a private firm and applied similar deception, she
would have been sacked. Not so with a Work and Income
accountability has no place in Work and Income NZ's policies. And, as
my interview with Darren Hughes MP disclosed, the Labour Government
is content to turn a blind eye at WINZ endeavours to deny sick and
disabled people their entitlement's.
Sheryl's allowances should have been reinstated the day I approached
Darren Hughes, the Labour Member of Parliament for assistance, not
three months later. Mr Hughes played no part in reinstating Sheryl's
transport disability allowances.
