the old ID discussion again. This will be interesting for those without drivers licenses.

Guards now stopping people without photo ID from entering MSD sites

From Morning Report7:50 am on 15 February 2017 

Security guards must now stop anyone trying to enter a Work and Income office if they don't have ID.

The changes are part of a new government policy being rolled out after two staff members were shot and killed at the Ashburton office in 2014.

But the guards' union says it's causing long queues and frustrations at the door.

Mike Treen of Unite Union said many of the people arriving for their appointments did not know about the policy.

He said guards were working outside, on their own, with an appointment list and dealing with a queue of people.

"The guards aren't actually able to do their job of guarding the door because they're busy looking up and down checking the names.

"So they're not keeping their eye on the customers, not keeping an eye on what's happening outside. They're not able to do their job."

He said customers were being made to stand aside while contact was made with somebody inside the office - but the guards could only do that by tapping on the door.

Mr Treen said the system was confusing, frustrating and dangerous. "In effect you've got WINZ making the guards carry out reception duties."

In a statement, Ministry of Social Development associate national commissioner Te Rehia Papesch said it was an important part of security that they knew who was coming into their sites.

"Our security guards are having a conversation with people before they come into our offices to quickly discuss why a person is there, and helps to make sure we don't admit anyone who might represent a risk to the safety of other clients or our staff.

"People will be asked for ID - any form of ID. But we know not everyone carries this at all times so I can reassure people that not having ID won't mean people can't come into a Work and Income office."

Beneficiaries' advocate Kay Brereton said the ministry had told her 21 people had so far been turned away for not having ID, but she suspected the true number was far higher.

And I stole LJF's pic too!

Already been stopped at WINZ on waiheke island here (and i live here, there's hardly any  people on this island compared to the mainland using WINZ...), all happened within a week

Back in the 90s I think it was, the Government tried to introduce Smart Card id. It wasn't a popular idea. So they sneakily took a different approach.

Everyone had paper driver's licenses. Mine was valid until 2035. They announced that everyone would have to get a plastic driver license complete with barcode, and the cheeky beggars made us pay for them even though we'd already coughed up for our theoretically still current paper licenses. Hardly anyone complained, in fact some of my friends were most enthusiastic, to my utter exasperation. These were the same people who voiced dissent at the Smart Card idea.

Sometimes the people are their own worst adversary.

A comment made by Clyde on the Churchill Alien thread that I felt worth adding to this topic:

"I see Phil Goff (former labour MP and now Auckland Mayor)disclosing on the news 2 nights ago that there was no point introducing regional petrol taxes now with GPS car registration only 5-6 years away, Big Brother is getting all too real when the state can issue speeding tickets for EVERY instance you exceed the limit and can charge you differential rates according to which route you use, to say nothing of recording your location and your every movement for all time...the NWO umbrella is growing by the day!"

Thank you Clyde, I also published this heads up remark in the comments at Uncensored.

see where this is all headed...mandatory carrying of ID at all times
