Not Bob nor James the pedo but the Shadow finance spokesman for the government in waiting, one of the many Davids who see themselves as the answer. Sadly it must have been a bloody stupid question.
Idjit Parker has joined the economically deficient chorus seeking a return to the past with a call for "the government to lower the value of the $NZ".
There are only three basic choices:
Indulge in a managed economy ala North Korea, sort of advanced Muldoonism.
Print money and destroy the savings of everyone with inflation.
Accept the challenges that a stronger dollar delivers and adapt.
Redundancy, retrenchment, refocussing yes, have halfwits looking for an answer that has appeal to the ignorant NOOO.
Dairy prices are making a small recovery and there are very apparent advantages in the current situation, petrol down 2 c today.
Oh and a word of explanation to the media jerks who expect us to be in thrall of their every word, the $NZ is really fairly stable, the fact is with the US Political leadership playing for another 4 years and printing money quaintly called Quantative Easing mark 4 it is the greenback tanking that is the major factor influencing the value of our dollar.
The dwindling intellect that is Peters can indulge his fantasies but for one who would be the man in charge it is just plain scary.
