    So what do you make of this comment - https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/988...n-labours-plan

    I don't think you can blithely lay it all at National's door. Lets see what a bloody mess Adern and Weasel Winston make, bound to be as bad if not worse than when Cullen held the purse strings!

    Living beyond your means is the same for Governments as it is for individuals.

    Itís self regulating and you get to the stage where you canít borrow any more because no one will lend to you owing to your debt level.

    Muldoon found this out the hard way, so got on the Turps, called a snap election, lost, and left Lange and Douglas holding the baby.

    They really only had one option, and that was to start selling the silverware.

    So thanks to Muldoon we lost the P&T, Banks, NZED and so on, but Labour got the blame.

    Unfortunately, most of our silverware has already been sold, so if some of our present Politicians and Treasury donít smarten their act up weíre in deep poo.

    The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
