Ministries of Do Nothing

Editor

This must be the National party’s new election policy that they are rolling out early.

“We are not going to do anything about taxing phones”.

“We are not going to do anything about taxing car parks”.

Perhaps they should add to that “We are not going to do anything about the loss of jobs in the manufacturing industry, or anything about creating new jobs to bring unemployment out of current high levels, or to help reduce child poverty, or stimulate job growth in the economy, or future proof New Zealand against an upcoming energy crisis and climate change (in fact we tried to sell off our energy co’s but we can’t manage that either). We are not going to do anything about protecting the Marlborough Sounds or any other part of the environment. In fact, we are not going to do anything about anything at all. We are, in fact, the Ministries of Do Nothing.”

And What a shame, their RoNS are so expensive they will never be built.
