i’m just listening to camilla on bfm talking to don brash.
she asked him about the u.n. report, citing us as 4th worst in the developed countries at looking after our children. and asked him what he would do about that if he were our leader.
brash dismissed the report on the grounds that a poor income in one country could be a good one in another.
now, brash is just talking weasal words here. he’s read enough economic reports in his life, and knows enough about the subject, to know that income must be related back to the living costs in the country cited.
oh, that’s right, his solution was the tired old act/rogernome benificiary bashing routine.
so that’s what national wouldn’t do about our children living in poverty; keep that in mind when you vote.
