  1. Lindsay Riddick says:

    After nine years taking negligible action and generally denying there was a problem I struggle to believe there is a real commitment from National. Watching this emerge live it was more a rash election promise, not thought through, made under pressure when cornered in a debate.

    • Jack Retter says:

      Least we forget, attending to the Global Financial Crisis and the rebuild of New Zealand’s second largest city has shown real commitment from National.

      With the GFC behind us, priorities can be diverted elsewhere.

      In a previous debate, I was struck by English’s answer to what he’d do with the extra $1000 tax cut he’ll receive if National is elected.

      He said he’d use it to continue supporting members of his extended family.

      I was also struck, as reported in CathNews, with English’s support of Challenge 2000, a Wellington social agency.

      I think these go to the mark of the man and his commitment to things that matter.
