Centrelink has Aha! moment

Finally someone at Centrelink has figured out the mystery.
People applying for Disability Pension can go on Newstart.
People applying for Carer's Pension can not!
Families on Carer's Pension dont have to eat????
This is novel!!!
The poor guy in the Customer Service infantry explains that the rationale for this masterpiece of cost saving is that people on Carers Pension are allowed to work for up to 20 hours. So they can go out and get a job.
Shdnt it be the people who are looking for work who get Newstart?
It's all a puzzlement to poor DH.
