THIS SHOULD GET FLAKE GOING

Wanna bet 'she' cringes now whenever someone mentions 'Year of Delivery'.    Hat-tip to DPF.

PTPMCOLSLG!!!!! FAIRY DUST ST JACINDA GLOSS WEARING OFF!!! ADS still manifesting I see, old fellas.

These sort of posts are pointless unless alternatives are offered.

Child poverty is caused by adult poverty and if the National party hacks are to be believed this mainly caused by the feckless underclass blowing their wages/welfare on booze and the gee gees.

It's going to cost money 'cos NZ is running a first world life style on a third world income......I suggest a fairer tax like CGT...oh wait, the righties don't like that either.

Neither do the lefties. Their PTPM has ruled it out. Permanently.

So nothing to offer Flake except mindless drivel. These are YOUR targets Sonny. Not someone else's, yours. Embarrassed .... you should be. Remember the old adage .... Oppositions don't win elections, Goverments lose them ... so full marks to you and yours for trying so hard to make it happen.

Let's then look at the week in review. Jones continues thumbing his nose at the PM and her limp response ... I'll talk to him (again). St Jacinta attempts to change the goalposts on police numbers ... police recruits are now to be counted as front line staff ... really? 22,000 more people on the dole since Labour took office ... and these are real people, not the result of a Stats Department algorithm. Four months into the measles epidemic and the Health Department only now is managing to source major quantities of the vaccine and to cap it all the NZF Whip cuts up rough only to have his leader assert that the video recording of the incident which he hadn't seen and has now apparently been wiped shows it twas all innocent fun.

Approximately 164,000 jobs were created in July 2019, and the national unemployment rate remained at 3.7%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
...
National Unemployment Rate at 3.7% Through July 2019.


Unemployment falls to 11-year low | Stats NZ
https://www.stats.govt.nz › news › unemployment-falls-to-11-year-low
Aug 5, 2019 - The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 3.9 percent in the ... of Māori who were not in the labour force (NILF) increased (up 14,600).


Ok...some of them are Mcjobs but overal we are doing better than our competitors.....what you cannot factor in is automation which is happenning far faster than anyone thought.

You can blame the Govt. for not passing legislation banning automation if you like.

Now if you look at the unemployment rate at the end of 2016 (National).....The unemployment rate rose to 5.2 percent in the December 2016 quarter (up from 4.9 percent in the previous quarter) while employment and the labour force continued to grow, Statistics New Zealand said today.Feb 1, 2017

I think I prefer stats nz figures to yours.

Lord Egbut Nobacon said...

Lies, more lies and statistics is the old saying......in 2019 there was an usnusal upsurge in returning New Zealanders (15,250) because of dire economic forecasts over seas. They are counted as migrants.

Bloody Kiwis, send 650 of them back to balance the books....

But all is not lost......."Provisional estimates of migrant departures were also up 5,800 to 93,300. The larger increase for departures meant net migration for the year ended January 2019 was down 1,800 when compared with the year ended January 2018."

There, fixed it for you Veteran. Sorry can't help you with the trees though.

Emission free vehicles....always a high bar...Under National, the government committed to making a third of its fleet electric or hybrid by 2021. While there are slightly more hybrid vehicles in the fleet - 514 in the most recent quarter - this short deadline would have been equally difficult to achieve.

If the fleet were to remain the same size, the Government would have had to replace 326 fossil fuel vehicles with hybrids or electrics every single month between November 2019 and December 2020....basically it's been dropped as unachievable without a big pile dosh.....damn that CGT.

Lord Egbut Nobacon said...

Housing waiting list.......well it's not surprising since National sold off the public housing stock.

The same houses have been sold and tarted up and put on the rental market at unafordable rents. If you want sort out the waiting list you need a rental cap and strict regulations which means that only professionals can enter the market, not Bob the builder with a couple of houses around the corner.

Egbut ... nice try but explaining is losing but thank you anyway. Far better that than the drivel from Flake but, to be fair, his teenage spots are troubling him while working out whether he is a he or she or an it is clearly also playing o his mind.

Defending the indefensible. The Year of Delivery and all these targets was Labour's. First rule of politics is under promise and over deliver. No amount of weak excuses alters the perception of a government that has aspirations but no idea of how to do it.

Max Ritchie said...

I might add weak excuses repeated ad nuaseum!

Hit me with a wet bus ticket if I'm wrong but weren't these the very indictors that the COL flogged the then governing National Party, day in day out, week after week, month after boring month ?

Wasn't that the same long 9 years of opposition mismanagement where they were supposed to be developing policies to turn these indicators around?

Oh and I suppose the extra 22,000 people on the dole in the last 2 years is just more lies and statistics..according to our resident leftards?
