    Says the person ranting about spending, even though we are in one of the best shape in the OECD.

    There is a world outside little old NZ.

    National also started the co-governance trend.

    Yeah - National didn't fund core services as they should have been and we went backward in Health and Education (and more) investment.
    Really set us up to fail with all the immigration we had at the time.

    Pathetic how 4.5 years in power and Labour & Ardern still attempt at every turn to blame previous governments for Ardern’s inability to deliver on anything!

    The only thing she knows to do is SPEND, SPEND and TAX TAX TAX.

    $1.9 billion for mental health for it to go backwards.

    Billions of dollars and thousands of additional staff for Kainga Ora into housing and she turned a self-described crisis into an unmitigated disaster. Where’s the 100,000 new houses?

    Waiting list for housing up 200% and emergency housing costing more than $1.2m a day!

    Then, there’s the failure of the $3 billion Provincial Growth Fund to deliver any projects of benefit.

    What about the 1,800 extra police personnel?

    The 1 billion trees?

    The list goes on and on and on.

    All spin and no delivery - this budget is no different.
