Has National lost the plot? #2
This statement by Bill English, Minister of
Guesswork Finance, would suggest that National has well and truly lost the plot. Englsih quoted in NZ Herald on likely proceeds of SOE sell down achieveing between NZ$5 bn and NZ$ 7 bn and treasury picking NZ$6 bn.
“I just want to emphasise that it is not our best guess; it’s just a guess. It’s just to put some numbers in that look like they might be roughly right for forecasting purposes.
Just what are they paying the professional advisers for then? English might as well visit a fairground soothsayer.
Yet again National fail to make a case for the proposed course of action.
Yet again National are found wanting.
Yet again National are not fashioning the debate, instead they are creating easy targets for their opponents.
