In a move that might at least cheer up cheer up refugees a bit, Tony has decided to turn his attention to beating up on welfare recipients for a bit of variety.
This pretty much involves getting unemployed people into the fruit-picking game, which can indeed be lucrative and fun. Hey, I’m Tasmanian and picked my share of apples in the days before I became a cartooning millionaire. Lots of fresh air and all the fruit you can eat.
It’s not like Tony doesn’t have a point either, welfare should be for people who really need it, but to stretch the fruit analogy possibly a bit too far, while the low hanging fruit is easier to get at, there’s some juicier stuff higher up the income tree that could use a bit of tough love as well if he was inclined to get off his arse and find a ladder.
