What the actual fuck are you doing, @NDIS and @stuartrobertmp? Now we not only have to have goals for every part of our lives and send them to government but we also have to be MEASURED against them. Smart goals??? You could not make this shit up, #auspol.

2/ And now we enter a world where not only does govt know our every move but they are going to hold us to account if we ‘fail’ to meet their impossible non disabled standards. Oh, I know you’ll say WE set the goals. You’ve never BEEN to a planning meeting, right?
3/ This is against the principles of the NDIS and we are tired of you introducing ‘trials’, declaring them ‘successful’ then implementing them by stealth. For a start, we will be contacting everyone in your trial site to tell them to put in goals around sex and masturbation.

OK - coming out of Parliament House: the Government is slating an omnibus of welfare bills designed to force those on the DSP back to Centrelink, with the premise of making the NDIS the new DSP. Much tougher reviews guidelines, fewer approvals. 1/3
Greens talking about the CDC:

*423 Cashless debit card (Senator Siewert): To move—That the Senate—

notes that the Government is in discussions with the big four banks, major retailers and EFTPOS around a possible national rollout of the cashless debit card (CDC); 2/3
Suggesting that CDC may be rolled out widely. 'Robodebt' scheme to be renamed in attempt to limit damage to govt. Talk about smoking-related illnesses being limited on medicare; changes to chronic heart disease and diabetes status. #auspol #robodebt #NDIS #medicare #health #DSP

[Thread] If you haven’t heard about the #indue #cashlessdebitcard used for some #centrelink payments. Ohh boy. Strap yourself in, you’re in for a ride. The Liberal government have been “trailing” the card at 6 sites across Australia since 2016. #auspol #AuspolSoCorrupt
The sites are Ceduna, Kununurra, Wyndham, Goldfields, Bundaberg and Hervey Bay regions.
The idea is to ‘quarantine’ 80% of a persons payment onto the indue card. This is meant to stop a person from using their payment to buy alcohol, illicit drugs, make cash withdrawals or gamble. This is to “tackle” the scourges affecting communities.

Imagine the social segregation of not being able to attend your best friend's 40th Birthday party because it's held in a restaurant that doesn't accept #indue #CashlessDebitCard
Imagine not being able to take your mum out on Mother's Day or dad on Farther's Day for lunch or dinner because local businesses aren't pre-registered for #CashlessDebitCard #indue
