It is appropriate to have a thread to highlight just how hypocritical & incompetent this current government really is.

As the pandemic fades into the background and the misdeeds of this government come to the fore, NZers can see for themselves just how bad this government is.

This government has plenty of money for gangs and criminals but not for parents & infants.

So much for its election promises of taking care of children, families and to eradicate child poverty.

Plunket will cut its parenting programmes because it cannot afford to keep running them.

Facilitators have been running 600 courses each year attended by about 4000 parents and caregivers. Since Covid-19 the classes have been run online.

https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/465016/plunket-to-cut-parenting-programmes-due-to-lack-of-funding

$400,000 extra funding a year would see Plunket, an organisation trusted and cherished by all NZers, retain all of its services.

This government handed over $2.75m to ‘help’ gangs sell drugs better and $150,000 to re-tattoo NZ out & put Aotearoa in place (for gang members) BUT does not have $400k extra a year for Plunket.

So do the crime and get rewarded by Adern & Poto Williams.

Do good and this government kicks you in the guts - in this case, mothers and infants.

Go figure.

at the macro level the worst thing is the lack of transparency in their policy

stated goals were never achieved

unstated unannounced policies ( often highly controversial ) were put in place.

this is why we need to move away from having politicians and members of parliament who are our so called representatives. they are not. in this world where every street has a camera , where databases are terrabytes and everyone is online , we dont need representatives, we can represent ourselves. govt in the 21st C should only be bureaucrats who seek policy approval via online individual representation. voting online not every 3 years but on all issues of policy. true democracy. /end thread hijack

Another day, another example of how this government’s housing & policing policies favour gangs and criminals :

And it’s only because of publicity (bad for polls, see) that Kainga Ora finally acted after the elderly woman had endured the gangsterism for a long year.

Watched Adern ducking and diving on TV3 while being questioned over how incompetent & badly Poto Williams has been handling her police portfolio, she obviously cannot handle the pressure anymore these days and is losing her spinning top!

Adern slipped and proudly proclaimed that police numbers have increased by 1,400 in the last 4.5 years.

Has she forgotten that she promised 1,800 within her first term?

So she’s 400 behind on her initial promise but actually the number is worse as there should be 2,700 more police by now - so close to 50% behind.

Only after crime has run rampant in Auckland CBD, is the police going to mount a response!

Whatever happened to ‘a stitch in time saves nine?’

Whatever happened to prevention of crime?

This is what happens when the country has an incompetent police minister, appointed just because she is token female & non white.

If you want to have more impetus behind your argument then adding another r to her name may help.

Some of the later arrivals on the planet may not know who you are referring to in years to come.:)

The cost of living issue would bring down even the most competent govt.

Thankfully it is now solved as of apr 1, so the polls will return to their baseline.

Impossible to miss articles about the hypocrisy, misdeeds and incompetence of Ardern’s government - like shooting fish in a barrel.

Enjoy, westerly because I am - even though I know you are seething with despair at just how unbelievably bad this government of nincompoops is performing.

Poto Williams in trouble again - this time for fudging numbers with a special police operation to seize illegal firearms.

Clueless and incompetent - a perfect combination for a police minister in a pro-criminal government.

The number of illegal guns attributed to a nationwide crackdown on gangs over the past 12 months includes firearms discovered during routine police callouts and other investigations into organised crime, the Herald can reveal.

The number of firearms taken out of criminal hands is often referred to by Police Minister Poto Williams as a result of Labour's tough stance on gangs, in response to the National Party's criticism of the Government.

However, data provided to the Herald shows fewer firearms were found during Operation Tauwhiro than the three previous calendar years: 1862 (2020), 1790 (2019), and 1626 (2018).

The current state of affairs with high levels of gun crime in NZ shows what an absolute waste of time the gun buyback policy was. Yet another do good-ers idea that was seriously flawed, failed in it's implementation and achieved absolutely nothing. Sound familiar ?

Remember this : “During the campaign Labour committed to lifting 100,000 New Zealand children out of poverty by 2020, with the end goal of eradicating child poverty in the country for good.”

Child poverty not getting any better - 4.5 years after her huge promise to eradicate child poverty, despite her government throwing ever more money into the hole. Even to the extent of her taking on the portfolio herself!

“Green Party's Jan Logie said the statistics of the report was "predicable and disappointing".

The arrogance of this government is totally beyond the pale.

From their self proclaimed pulpit of truth, they shower mistruths, misinformation and spin like confetti on NZers - as if we are all like their brain dead devotees.

Well, they are getting caught out these days with nowhere to hide.
