Too late, Mike. Your precious National have already borrowed $50 billion-plus.
And now they're flogging off our state assets to pay for their incompetance. This has to be the worst government since the Year Dot.
The Nats have no clue how to grow the economy nor reduce unemployment, and can only take punitive action against the state sector and welfare recipients.
God help this country; every time National get elected, they stuff everything up. And we pay for the mess they leave.
Roll on the next election.

Oh Mike, you are such a whiney little girl.
You keep stating that labour would take us to the same place that Greece is... yet that is exactly what John Key and National have done.
Greece is being forced by the bankers to cut welfare expenditure, to sell off state assets and to cut back public services.
How is it in your tiny mind that you cant see that John Key is voluntarily doing what Greece is being forced to do to get aid?.
And by the way... now under National we have a large number of sick people being forced off ACC onto a Winz benefit.

I think this is more unimaginative policy by this government. The seem to just repeat old policies, based on ideology rather than anything that might make a change in this society. We need to think seriously about where this country is heading, we are a small country, with a small population and have the opportunity for innovation and positive change but instead the Nats keep rehashing old policies to satisfy their voters views. We pay these people a lot of money to improve our country and yet the gap between rich and poor grows wider by the day. This country is being seriously mismanaged by the government and polls are showing the growing mistrust in the Nats.
