    The reserve bank today asked for a review of immigration policy.

    Quite apart from the reserve bank doing the government’s job for them, I wondered what CV thought of this.

    Tony Blair’s new job:

    If anyone needs to get on with it, it is John Key.

    – Liam Dann


    • Andre 4.1

      Yep, that was a pretty clear “We’re already doing our job, how about you fucking do yours Johnny.” from the Reserve Bank.

      • Mrs Brillo 4.1.1

        Key has had several goes at passing the missing housing parcel.

        First he tried the Sallies, and they told him Mate, you’re dreaming. Sod off.
        Then he tried to make it the total concern of local government.
        Now he’s trying to make it the job of the Reserve Bank.

        Anyone else reminded of the scene in AbFab where dozy Bubble just wants to laze and lark around, and not do her job, and Edina has to shout at her:
        “No, YOU do it! YOU do it!!!!!!”

        All together now – hey John…… YOU do it!!!

      I am taking a rather perverse delight in watching Key’s ideological straight jacket getting tightened, one strap at a time.

    This clip is from a few years back, but we’ve had so much fun with these guys:

    Live they’re magic.

    Surprise surprise….

    In one of the declassified documents, a U.K. diplomat says the British government should “start preliminary work to ensure U.K. companies are well-placed to pick up contracts in the aftermath” of the war. The memo, dated February 2003, calls for a meeting with BP, Shell and other British companies.

    “We would need to handle this carefully and ensure it was confidential to avoid charges of oil motivations,” the declassified memo states.

    Although I too am loving National/key getting nailed around housing, but am also deeply concerned at the same time…
    …where are the deep structural changes to the problem being proposed by Labour? I have seen nothing from them that would change the current ideology of houses as commodities, and until that nefarious genie is placed firmly back in it’s dark little bottle nothing will change, that much is for sure.
    Maybe those deep structural and ideological changes need to happen in Labour first?

    Even government pollster Farrar now acknowledges immigration is a problem.

    The focus groups must be in because it’s well known he doesn’t have an original thought of his own, only bought ones.

    My question is around the study visas. The net should be zero plus growth. If these students go home at the same rate as they arrive (plus growth in the sector) then there shouldn’t be a significant effect…

    …unless they are not going home.
