Now the hard times come!


More proof that Cullenomics is unravelling, as despondency in the economy deepens as food and fuel prices rise, along with mortgages.
What have we got to show for nine years hard Liarbour?
very little.
Remeber, until a few months back, New Zealand was basking in the best global economic weather for many a year.
Yyet, incomes barely rose and where they did rise, Cullen grabbed much of the extra in tax.
David Farrar over at kiwiblog recently revealed how little wages had risen under Liarbour compared with former National governments.
Anyway, times are tough, the 'economic slide' continues.
I was listening to Kerre Woodham on Newztalk ZB last night and while Kerre admitted to 'knowing nothing about economics' seemed quite gloomy, along with her listeners, many of whom were planning to go to Australia.
I had just driven through the Waikato countryside, leaving Hamilton for Tauranga, which was a beautiful sight to behold as evening and night approached.
What a rural Arcadia we live in. Pity that Helengrad is wrecking it!

Agreed. Prior to the last election, Cullen admitted that in spite of 6 of the best years in any ones living memory, the average NZ'er was no better off. While wages have gone up, the govt has introduced 41 additional taxes that have whittled the money away.

Six years of the best conditions ever and the best this govt can do is put us right back to where we started.

It was a VERY expensive mistake on the part of NZ'ers to put this incompetent government in charge.

Fairfacts, have you ever known of a talkback host who knows anything at all about economics, or much else besides? Anyone who did would not get the job.

And they are all gloomy, as are their listeners. Talkback hosts are a bunch of whining, moaning joy killers. They always have been. No matter who is the government, no matter how good the economy (or how bad, for that matter), they are all doom, gloom and despair.

I don't know how they can face getting out of bed in the mornings.
