National's gang policy will win votes - commentator

From Morning Report, 8:13 am on 31 October 2019

The National Party released its social services discussion document, floating a series of "hard-line" policies on welfare, on Wednesday.

Ideas include blocking gang members and their associates from the dole if they can't prove legal income or assets, and "no jab, no pay" for sole parents on a benefit.

Political commentator Ben Thomas told Corin Dann the policy would play with people living in areas where there were gangs.
