If John Key wasn't so arrogant he'd be worried about losing his job.

Yeah I have to agree with 'Just Me'. That brighter future is looking like a dim light at the end of a long tunnel. The Hillside workers are put out of their jobs just before Xmas and the unemployment rate is the highest in 13 years...I hope we don't still have those on the right wanting to blame all this on the Labour Party, the Unions, the teachers or whoever else looks like a scapegoat. All that approach confirms is the fact this administration has achieved nothing positive to speak of. 1 in 4 kiwis fearful of losing their jobs is another sad testament to the continuing failures of this National govt. The underlying problem is the brighter future they mentioned,in last year's election campaign, appears to be referring to the wealthy only. There's hasn't been one single substantial policy emerge to help the average working class NZer. Instead it's been a series of badly disguised attempts to hammer the middle class and lower income workers into submission. Creating an environment where people in NZ are fearful of losing their jobs is governance at it's worst. More kiwis migrating to Aussie and less taxpayers to contribute to the tax base?? What is it this misguided govt is trying to achieve. A fiscal surplus at the expense of most kiwis standard of living..whooaaa that's how you get yourselves voted out of a job National. I hope they can get their act together next year or it's the everyday NZer who will suffer and we've all seen how little that affects the attitude of this admin....it just keeps getting worse and the CHCH rebuild is their one strategy to bring down the unemployment figures. Hope they're not waiting for another natural disaster to get them out of their own man-made disasters or we're all in for a bumpy ride in the new year...
