    If you can possibly make it to this event, please do. Labour in Dunedin North helped organise a child poverty forum this week, and the stories and statistics which were revealed to an audience of around 50 people were frankly shocking. The people of NZ need to wake up to the pressing current day issues, and the fact that if they are not addressed urgently, we will be seeing the negative outcomes in health, education, crime and economy for years to come as many of these at risk children grow up, try and fail to find a footing in society.

    And by the way. NZ is not sliding towards a low wage high cost economy, for a million people we are already there.
