Taxpayer funded training for prostitutes

July 18, 2007

Over the last 7 years Labour have found many causes to waste tax payers money on, including their own re-election with its pledge card. A good list of things Labour wastes my tax dollars on is available at Wastewatch. But the latest is difficult to beat- taxpayer funding of training courses for prostitutes (note: this is a theoritical possibility, not something that exists now, but could exist in the future). The governments new education funding criteria allows this, according to research done by NZ First MP Brian Donnelley. This situation comes about because of the prostitution law reform Act, by which prostitution is treated as a valid career choice for young women (not many mothers or girls would think that). I wonder what new lows in moral values Labour can sink our country to?
