New Zealand: Suppressive Third World

Posted by te2ataria on February 14, 2009

Less than 1 percent of the population in poxy ‘New Zealand’ own the lion’s share of everything!

Unsurprisingly, most of the super rich live outside poxy New Zealand. They wouldn’t chance the heavy metal poisoning, or other biochemical risk of living in the country.

More food parcels being distributed

The number of people unable to make ends meet is rising.

Figures released by the Salvation Army show that in the last three months of 2008, almost 7,000 families received food parcels.

Spokesman Major Campbell Roberts says in comparison with 2007, there has been a 38 percent jump in the number of families in need. He says the numbers suggest low income families are having trouble budgeting from week to week.

At the moment the Salvation Army can support people in need and is still receiving plenty of community contributions. However, Mr Roberts is expecting a growth in demand as the country heads deeper into recession.

“In some senses, the recession hasn’t really impacted on employment too much in New Zealand yet and if the numbers that are predicted occur, this situation which we have now, which is already deteriorating, will become much worse.”

Mr Roberts says contributions are still coming in and for now the Salvation Army can cope. Copyright author or respective news agency.

Notes:
1. ‘Poverty Measurement Project (1995), conducted by reputable academics and researchers, found that 32.6 percent of children [and by extension their families] in New Zealand live below a poverty threshold of 60 percent of the median disposable income.’

2. ‘The incidence of poverty is more than two and a half times greater among Maori,’ however, ‘than it is among Pakeha [European] families.’
