All over for Len

The legacy of punitive policies is homelessness.
CLAUDETTE HAUITI: Minister Bennett wouldn’t have visited with Te Puea kainga-kore whanau themselves, the media mob hovering around her meant privacy issues would’ve kicked in. But if she had, Minister Bennett would’ve come face to face with her punitive reforms.
