Entertaining listening,

Jocko online right now.

ACC - tight fisted approach - worth listening to.

Radio Pacific


Breaking news: 410PM ACC forum news


ACC GreyMouth - Tainui Street.
Security from the ACC office came out and gave the
locals a hard time for asking for help to repair or rplace a wheelchair.

Your ACC levies have paid for those security people to help deny help to a disabled person.

Security heavies hired by the ACC mafia, tackled small group of protestors and gave them a hard time. This is typical treatment from ACC.

ARMOURGUARD Employees contracted to the ACC mafia try to bully protestors

OK here's the Deal,

Mark Bennett Has announced A nice feed will be supplied
by a top Westcoast Bakery for ALL Supporters.

So contact all you know onthe WestCoast and give your support -

Be there with your banner/ placard 330Pm Thursday Greymouth ACC Tainui Street.

Support Ben - He needs his clapped out wheel chair replaced.

If you cant get to the West Coast, then call te ACC Westcoast and demand they get this guys wheelchair replaced.

Tomcat is online at Radio Pacific.

ACC say "Kiwi's Helping Kiwi's" but fob off callers to ACC - they wont put calls through to the ACC Greymouth Office.

ACC Mafia and bought security = subtle intimidation. Your ACC Levies are paying for this instead of fixing a claimants wheel chair.

0800 309 3099 Radio Pacific


Many New Zealanders are Heartily pissed off at how acc treats them.

Maybe its getting time for more direct action and BIG placards for ACC's offices.

ACC levies - Are ACC Double Dipping? We pay ACC Levies from what we earn, we also then have to pay a large ACC levy in vehicle registrations, then ACC deny to help when asked.

ACC have been sending "safety Trainers" to industry like the dairying/industry groups, telling people how to be safe, yet ACC deny cover for genuine accidents.

ACC refusing cover after ACC friendly "pet " doctors give an alternative opinion to that of specialists.

There are Billions of Dollars Pouring into ACC from our Levies but only a trickle coming out, and even less if you need a wheelchair fixed.

PRAISE THE BELIEVERS Who are helping outside the Greymouth ACC.

This time, its a tyre on a wheelchair, but the ' selective rehabilatation' continues,
and the average ' NZ.' has now got no real chance of true rehabilation back to the work force, as the 'present minister' claims in the parliament.

Whoa!!!! Mark was the one taking the mickey out of them with the security Gaurd. The bloke from Armourgaurd was friendly and if anything sympathised with us.
The intent and purpose of sending him was made clear by Mark but the guy himself was cool. We told him " WE are here to protect YOU in case you end up like Ben mate" He was very diplomatic and not in the least unfriendly. So it was Mark using a bit of the old being "Economic with the truth" or poetic license or whatever you call it. We know ACC was demonstrating its financial might by hiring them but Armourgaurd and their officer are not at fault here.
Ben is an injured fisherman and is at present doing a course in computer management. The wheel chair has one of the small wheels off completely and the other is flat. One of the footrests is broken it is knackered, that is the only way to describe it. He has an assessment from an approved serious injury assessor stating this and that he needs a new one. Kaye Costely. Already infamous for her lies has managed his claim. This is again a flagrant breach of the law and a blatant attempt to embezzle this mans entitlements. The case clearly demonstrates that ACC is not rehabilitating. Here we have a man who is intent on rehabilitating himself to obtain vocational independence and ACC is preventing him from achieving his aspirations. The billions being spent on rehehehehahahabilitation by David Rankin and Gary Wilson is lining the pockets of Wilsons wifes mob, the CPANZ, while claimants are being prevented from rehabilitaing themselves and the maimed are denied aids to daily living. The second last manager got sacked for sending his wife shopping on an ACC credit card while overseas. the last one got sacked for lining up an aeroplane deal with his brother and ACC. This one spends that much on his misses he has blown his budget and is desperately cutting costs to cover it. This man has stated publicly that he enjoys the cruelty he is inflicting on Ben and thousands like him. He must go

At 7.20 the complaints about A.C.C are still pouring in,on radio pacific.Even Sir Patrick Hogan has had enough of the excessive levies charged by A.C.C.

Mark is not going to let up on this one -Thank you Mark -he plans to continue
on this for at least the rest of the week.

MY ADVICE TO WILSON,MACGREEDY ,WANKIN ,DYSIN AND ALL AT A.C.C,THE WRITINGS ON THE WALL.CASH ALL THOSE FUN GRABBING SHARES YOU`VE HAD FUN DOODLING ROUND WITH FOR YEARS.I THINK YOU`RE GOING TO NEED THAT MONEY SOONER RATHER THAN LATER TO PAY OUT CLAIMANTS .

If you want advice on how to survive on an unemployment benefit ,many of us here can help you out on that one

Just in from acclaim Otago monthly meeting. We are all behind you guys on the coast... shame we couldn't be there in person HOWEVER there has been a suggestion that all ACC offices be hit at 3pm tomorrow (or Friday cos that gives us more time to advertise the fact on radio) to highlight Ben's plight. What do ya reckon??

Being the skipper of a boat and in close proximity to a variety of men over they years you get to read them fairly good. You have to or you burn them out and accidents happen. Bens tired, at times he didn't want to talk to Mark anymore. This has been a long vigil for a man in his condition and he's feeling it
Most of us have thought of doing what he is doing but if you are like me you inwardly cringe at the thought of it. This bloke has tremendous courage. To me he is like his forbear with the bloody flagpole. We all flounder around amidst the legalities and the corruption and the bullshit. Then up bowls this warrior that says "To hell with you, if you don't give me the entitlement you are embezzling I will camp on your doorstep until you do."
I am pleased to say that the only communication to Ben and the group for the day was through the security officer who said that ACC was frightened.
That raised a laugh. Ben needs our support. He has a wicked sense of humour and really likeable nature. He has carried this on his own and he is missing his computer course to carry his fight to them. This is concerning him. He jokes and makes fun of it and ACC but we know this is an act of pure desperation.
I'm as sore as and I want to take a codeine but they make me irritable and it was a very peaceful affair, Bens humour is infectious, so I want to stay that way.
Anyway its not my affair, its Bens and he has made a bloody good job of it so far! But I hope the *&##** ACC have the brains to stay inside when they deliver the pies! Ammunition! I hope I was not taking too much liberty saying I represented ACClaim NZ. I didn't know what to say, the buggar passed me the phone! A really heartfelt thank you for all your support folks. I asked Ben too hold the accforum sign and told him we are all behind him. He is excited when he talks of his course and is hanging out to get on the internet. The most ironic thing is the assessor recommended a flash chair and he opted for a quickie out of the box, all he wanted was a wheel chair. Honestly the one he has is a thing, you wouldn't let your kids play on it! It never ceases to amaze me how we adapt and persevere as a species. I better go to bed and laugh and hum myself to sleep. Hell if you have to be taught to laugh when you are on ACC it only serves to PROVE they are driving you insane! Thanks again folks. We realize this is just the coasts turn to be in the spotlight (again!) and this is only another round in the battle, but make the most of it and go hard with any means you choose. Bens one of us no mistake and he is doing this with all claimants in mind, cheers jocko

:lol: Hi ! Good on you all doing it in good old West Coast style!!
Hang in there Ben, you are doing it for all of us!!

Did anyone hear Mark's last caller? He was a former ACC Case Manager. He would not say too much as he "feared the Mafia would come banging on his door".
He was a CM for 9 years and left as he was fed up of being told to"ACTIVELY REMOVE ALL LONG TERM CLAIMANTS"

He also said "WE WERE TAUGHT TO ACTIVELY CHALLENGE EVERY GP DECISION".
We know that is going on, but there you go straight from the "Horse's mouth! He then hung up. But he said enough.

ANY MORE EX CASE MANAGERS OUT THERE WILLING TO TELL US THE TRUTH??

Enjoy your feed folks!!!!!

Radio Pacific - comments from the program compiled here:
Mark Bennett online live right now

tight fisted miserly acc approach to helping claimants yet spend plenty on useless Natiowide paper advertising

stunned = radio pacific, with the response they have had in the last 24 hours

ACC are not going to get away with dodging the issue of supporting a person they are meant to.

miserly contempt

plenty of people arond new zealand who are on the wrong end of ACC Decisions

tight fisted arrogance of ACC.

Govt surplus - 7 billion profit - and they are happy out of it,

acchave stashed away more than 5 bilion dollars in investments

121 million dollars - income for the half year from you and I in levies.

another giant way for the govt to grab more taxes

ACC Greymouth manager " JOHN" said to ben,

give me your wheel chair and he will send it away for a couple of days for a professional to look at, Ben has said give me the tyres and parts and tools and i'll fix it in a couple of hours in front of your offices.

345PM Public Servants from ACC Greymouth sneaking out the back door leaving work, trying to hide from the ACC protestors
WILL THEIR PAY BE DEDUCTED FOR LEAVING EARLY?


Friday 330pm - Mark Bennett and Radio Pacific will put on another feed for all supporters of BEN.
