    Right. I see that parties are posturing already. Promising things that they shouldn't.

    Apparently, National is borrowing NZ$250m a week, is this correct?

    If so, will Labour do the same, I wonder.

    Are we about to be gulled yet again?

    I am sorry to say that I have no faith in politicions of any party. PJ
    Deafness.
    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    You do understand the developed world is still coming out if a MAJOR recession?. NZ has done relatively well compared to most other OECD nations in the last 3 years.

    Neither party could have avoided it, but I prefer to have the more business orientated party in under the circumstances.

    No doubt this next election the small parties will make huge demands worth billions NZ cant afford under MMP, holding the larger parties that won far more support to ransom.

    The sooner NZ gets rid of worthless MMP, the sooner we will start to move ahead.
