I know that with me typing this that some ppl will not like it but I don't know..... Lol I always dreamed that instead of a centerline payment or a single parenting payment, the type where a child was born without a relationship, there would be a big community like community housing but those ppl would have to work for their money by working in a communal kitchen, where they would be supplied with all meals, grounds keeping, childcare, etc at the same time these ppl will get a certificate for what they are doing as a job so that they have experience and accreditation for the future. I know heaps of people who are on centerline for the wrong reasons and heaps of people whos partners earn $120 000 a year and still claim a single parenting payment because hubby works away and home temporarily. What a joke as if you need any more money:s anyway lol of the track I do know some people who are on centerlink but I just never understood why half these ppl won't even work part time or casually and its because they were afraid of getting their money cut down. Its such an easy source of money. Just lucky you live here in Australia where things are easy. It's always going to be a hard topic of conversation I guess we should just be grateful for what we have.

Blissedout- your idea about cutting money but every child receiving two nutritious meals at school ( across the board) is interesting. Is that what they do in the state schools in the UK? What would you do about those areas where school attendance is really low? In some areas of WA it can be around 60% which means 40%, roughly speaking, on any one day wouldn't get those meals and the family would still have less money.

Why don't we just bring back work houses for us poor people? Then the greater community would feel like they are getting their money's worth.
