This is the first time I have seen such a concise and biting take down of the self opiniated and destructive Clark regime. Some stand out quotes:-
"Historians will look back in a couple of decades at the decline and fall of the Labour Government and lay much of the blame on Michael Cullen and his dead hand as Minister of Finance."
Then this little beauty.
"With many voters, the suspicion remains that most politicians in the Labour Cabinet would be hard-pressed to read a balance sheet."
But there's more,
"the high rate of employment is because more than a million Kiwis have fled to greener pastures overseas."
And the killer punch, Cullen's flagship 'good deed' is becoming an albatross for Labour as voters approach the election and struggle to understand the term 'negative returns.'
"They would have been hoping for a steadily growing pot of loot. Instead their balances will show their money has contracted nastily. Not a lot of gratitude to be earned there by Labour."
It's enough to make a grumpy old Gnat break out in smiles.
