Directors loosing investors money gets drag through the court, so there is no reason why beneficiaries who clearly bludged on the system can't be exposed. Bennett should be given a medal for taking the heat. The leopard coat is her trademark. She will not change her spots. Good on her!

Remember... Bill English and Paula Bennett have issued all beneficiaries with the following threat.
If National are doing anything illegal or wrong or morally reprehensible and you talk about it, then we will crucify you in the public arena... is basically the whole sordid story here.
English and Bennett are trying to silence beneficiaries with the promise of public crucifications.
That in itself is interfering with these peoples rights to freedom of speech... without fear of reprisal.
What she did was ruled a breech of privacy... so we already know what she did was wrong... she avoided a hearing by writing a letter.
She wasnt found not guilty.. she wasnt found to be righteous... Paula Bennett was found to be wrong.

@Brent what a load of twaddle.
How does you knowing all of this improve or fix the situation? do you think you have a right to know just because of your own self importance?.
Lets not forget that Ms Bennett instituted a witch hunt that yeilded absolutely no results.
I believe of all the dozens of people she investigated they all turned out to be receiving the correct entitlements.
Ms Bennett is a bully.... thats what this is about.
