        Doesn’t seem to be happening at all. Lower unemployment than when National was busily making schools and hospitals fall to pieces, and underfunding infrastructure and letting the housing situation turn into a crisis. All the economic indicators are very good.

            For conning Air Allblacks into paying for his useless US disappointment of a Pres golfing buddy to come here, and then having them put up excess baggage charges to pay for it?

          Don’t believe the hype the reality is that the economy is slowing down. The economic Indicators only report what has happened not what is happening right now and it is not good.

            😮 How can this be? What exactly is happening now and is not good? 😕

            The Reserve Bank Governor has even relaxed bank deposit limits on mortgages. Aren’t you looking forward to seeing the Wellbeing Index?

              The problem for the Coalition govt of course is the economy was in such good shape when they inherited it it’s going to be extremely hard to keep improving and/or keeping it at that standard.

              It seems to be proving relatively easy to keep it improving or at least keeping it at that standard? It seems this coalition is quite happy to ring fence some money for potentially wasteful spending but keep a tight rein on the things that matter – like the last one. Which is annoying the heck out of the Opposition because their leader has been statements that can be – and are – cherry picked by the current Finance Minister to show that he actually supports their management of the economy.

              The Reserve Bank is saying that a number if industry need more capital to strengthen their balance sheets. Where is this capital coming from? The Resreve bank is easing lending restrictions to stimulate property purchases that says this segment has slowed down. Small business is saying business is quiet that is a worry.

              “It seems to be proving relatively easy to keep it improving or at least keeping it at that standard?”

              Early days yet. Says more about the resilience of the economy and how little the new govt have implemented as part of a ‘change’ govt. Money being thrown away can’t be kept up forever.

              National, contrary to what some people think, spent a vast amount on schools and hospitals.

              Well, seeing the pathetic state of some of these institutions, one has to wonder if they were actually really tight-arsed vastards.

              I can’t work out if you’re baiting people or if you’ve fallen for the spin.

              I’ve always picked you as having intelligence so I’m going with the former option. In which case – well played sir, you’ve had a good catch today!

              I’m doing a bit of fishing, but as I’m not an economist, nor am I politically or economically tribal, I’m mainly reflecting back what I see being put out by the various political and politicised economic camps and pushed out via the various forms of media.

              I see the potential for huge taxpayer money wastage for no sustained or sustainable economic growth but I also see various attempts to address fundamental issues like skill shortages and skills training deficiencies & the use of immigration (various future societal & public services and of economic impacts of large multicutural inflows worry me).

              I think another term is on the cards for this coalition because the quality of political analysis, news and reporting is so dire, and trying to understand the competing screeches from poliiticans, political echo chambers blogs, industry, business (some may boom) and rampant narcissistic rot and endless Trump Circus shows infecting the news and social media has just squashed many people’s brains, so they just ignore it all and vaguely hope for the best and are waiting to see what happens.

              Women will vote for Ardern in droves for no other reason than that she is a young woman and a mum and can turn on the celebrity act, the schoolgirl act, the professional politician, the authoritarian and the angel and the diplomatic act as required.

              The National Party is incoherent.

    Are these two old white men about to make the ultimate sacrifice for the far-left…the Wayne Bobbitt?

    I don’t get relevance but a starter for imaginations.

    Cutting through the regulations?
    Not finished the job, so looking half cut?
    Scissors at the ready and right there two ties? Tūtae?
    Cost cutters, lost nutters?
    Cut and Thrust?

    Goff should know better than to pose for silly photographs, which will ultimately become memes and used against him. This photo highlights his “rat” look, just needs whiskers
