off benefits and into what....

David Benson Pope has announced that during 2005, the unemployment register fell by more than 14,000, and the total number of beneficaries fell by a further 17,000. Furthermore he says those formerly on the unemployment benefit have jobs, implying all of them. Every single one. And in New Zealand, too.

Sure, most of them probably have got jobs, both in NZ and Australia, but where did all the Wananga and other tertiary students come from - Australia? And how come welfare spending has gone up?
