Chaos in NZ

Recommended Posts

I can’t ever remember so much chaos.

Nurses striking, IRD and MBIE down tools today, Teachers rumbling and The Police are said to be next to walk off the job.

So much chaos.....all the disenchanted are empowered by a weak leftist government.

There'll be a price for the country to pay for this, business confidence must collapse, inflation, prices and cost of living must increase ..... the dark clouds are gathering on the horizon .....time to roll out Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford Politicised Hatchling again to distract us from the chaos...

After 9 years of mismanagement and a borrow and  hope Govt, that believed in kick the can down the road ,hardly surprising that people left behind in the remuneration stakes are flexing their muscles.M.B.I.E are a joke.Spent over $1million a week on consultants on Joyces watch,70k sculpture,140k big screen T.V,hair straightener FFS...couldn't run a bath.

Nurses deserve every cent.

As for chaos ,unless you are very young there have been plenty of worse clusterfucks with inept politicians at the helm.

Facts FU2......Grant Robertson’s budget excesses ( $18,000,000,000 of it to be exact ) were funded from National’s debt repayment funds, and from what’d been set aside for tax cuts.

As is the way with Labour they’ll tax and spend their way into oblivion, try to tell us all how to live our lives, privatise assets, erode traditional family values, and drag the economy down.That’s why Labour governments have historically been short term affairs.

The current industrial unrest is if course because this government is crippled, they’re seen as weak, vulnerable, and because in the coalition deal Labour sold out to NZF to buy power given that they were a minority party. Now Winston’s motley crew have billions for the RDF, Ron Mark can run around buying old planes from the Americans, Winston can throw dough at all manner of things like Racing, and of course the nurses, police, and many others are saying “ if there’s money to buy power by bribing NZF why isn’t there money for all of us?”

This’ll spread like cancer FU2, it always does, but in another couple of years it’ll be over, thank God.

facts for you P4P...National do not have debt repayment funds.National borrowed more in 9 years than the total borrowed since NZ became a sovereign nation.The Clarke administration ran straightline budget surplus,National straightline deficits.

The economy responds to international events and is hardly affected by domestic governance.

Defence like most things ,was negelected under the 9 years of  Govt that had the usual objective...'for the few at the expense of the ...many'.

Nationals legacy after 9 years ...=destroyed the Kiwi dream of home ownership for  new generations, and accelerated the sale of NZ to foreigners.

Their first 'initiative' was to bring back knighthoods and funnily enough the 2 main actors received one as they departed .(Along with a few wealthy donors ..of course)

Comrade Flockyou has a slightly rose tinted view of things. Refutes the massive surplus left by National and conveniently forgets the huge challenges that were faced along the way, including the Financial meltdown and some major disasters that needed sorting.

Pray we don't have another....can you imagine the Ardern/Whisky motley crew coping as well....?? :rolleyes:

Supposedly you are talking about the GFC ,caused by those cut from the same cloth as former P.M Key.In the world of forex gambling he was very successful and known as 'the smiling assassin'.

The Christchurch earthquakes were dealt with as any major catastrophe is by the incumbent Govt.

How well did Gerry handle it?Debateable, as deficiencies come to light and unresolved claims are still being negotiated.

History shows National Govts maintain the status quo,and very rarely embark on significant programmes of change that affect the rank and file.

The Key administration did plumb new depths in black ops with Jason Ede and dirty politics with the compliance of unprincipled  provocateurs  Slater,Lusk,and co.

They can thank Lynton Crosby for astute P.R and a compliant msm to faithfully regurgitate meaningless propaganda like...'sound economic managers,a safe pair of hands',a brighter future' and 'on the cusp of something special'.

FU2 is actually correct, NZ's debt to GDP rocketed under National, however he is being a bit disingenuous, because there was a little thing called the global financial crisis.

The chart below shows what happened to NZ (solid white line), Japan (grey), Australia (Red), and the US (blue) debt to GDP following the GFC - NZ were quite the outperformer, especially when you throw in the Christchurch earthquake.
