Prisons of silence: the dark side of the Australian disability support system : Comments

By Patricia Eisele, published 21/4/2016

It already contains the seeds of failure an existing, ingrained culture of family disability fraud and embezzlement that has been operating openly and arrogantly in Australia for years.

Not sure what this article is about..is it just a rant vaguely about the NDIS or something else?

Clearly the author has left out a lot of detail as the you do not win court cases without some grounds.

Thanks Patricia for exposing yet another flaw in the NDIS. Just shows how hollow Gillard tears were in announcing the unfunded scheme. I notice now that Ngo's are spending mega bucks on TV ads offering better deals for their clients. The ads are obviously money that should be spent on people with genuine disabilities. My wives down syndrome brother has actually lost funding under this new scheme despite promises to the opposite. The leeches are out in force.

The NDIS is an unecessary indulgence for bludgers and crooks that we cannot afford. The claimed annual cost is just the beginning. The cost will blow out year after year, thanks to incompetent politicians, public servants and fraudsters, all on the public purse. The Turnbull government is going to plunder taxes as irrationally as any Labor government.

I'm on the DSP for legitimate reasons. I have never claimed on this thing. I don't know anyone who has claimed on this thing. Either I mix with honest people, or stupid people, but I do live on an extremely tight budget. If people are abusing this thing, then really, it should be taken away. Then they might release some of the pressure that we feel from those who keep telling us that we should just rot on the street with nothing at all...

Perhaps if the support offered to these disabled was a reasonable figure, this would not happen.

We need a new law that no one can receive more than the minimum wage in welfare payments, so these rorts are brought under control.

The idea that any country can afford to spend $168,000, plus a heap of other stuff on the side, on each "disabled" is ridiculous. No wonder the number of so called disabled is exploding.

Many would happily give some bent doctor $25,000 a year, to get them on this merry go round, rather than the age pension or the dole. I wonder how many are rorting this system, & how many in the medical profession are growing very rich on the spoils.

Australia is a rich country and can easily afford to give disabled people a fair go. It's pathetic how those who think otherwise treat a serious but isolated isolated case of fraud in the existing system as a reason to oppose the NDIS.
