Apologies for the lack of recent posts, but I’ve been busy making posters like this for Sir Roger Douglas.
This one highlights the government’s distinct lack of ambition for New Zealand relative to the country it said it was committed to catching.
Even an Australia under a Labor government is a fast-moving target for NZ under a National one, so granny steps in the right direction won’t cut it.
As the 2025 Taskforce’s second report said, “We can catch Australia, but we have to start.”
That, I think, is Brash-speak for, “My former colleagues are as lily-livered as ever.”
And because we’ve yet to start, we now have to grow at 2% a year faster than Australia grows (up from 1.6% faster) — hardly likely under a PM who takes his policy direction from Lucy Lawless.
Will post more posters and have a general catch up soonish.
