    Hear bloody hear, Kenneth.

    We should not be holding them to centrelink standards, because no one should be. Their fair treatment should be used as an argument for fair treatment for all. The suggestion that they live to the same stringent rules as everyone else should only be made sarcastically. To say it sincerely is to accept all the bullshit that is done to us all as just.
