And then the bad debt spread

Just to give you an idea of how far the medical dependent rot spread is this -

WINZ will pay the electricity bills of beneficiaries when the Power is in danger (or has been) disconnected.  WINZ has an 'allowance' for each beneficiary to cover expenses such as these, broken down cars, medical bills etc.

However the customers who tend to have used all of their allowance also seem to not pay their Power Bills.

WINZ case officers were then telling these customers to advise the Power Company that they had a nebulizer
at the property so that the Power would remain on.  The customers says this and then didn't pay their Power Bill.

It took an age of the Power Companies complaining to get an investigation started, and this lead to further training for a number of WINZ staff.

Just to let you know.
