It seems National has a problem with numbers.
First they fudge the numbers for ACC so they can claim a “blow out” and now they can’t even get the numbers to pass their legislation.
You heard correctly. After all of that hoopla about how ACC is in crisis and how they need to strip entitlements and raise levies they’ve put the house into urgency only to find out they don’t have the numbers to pass the legislation. It’s like they were too busy spinning the fake numbers to remember to run the real ones.
That’s right. Apparently Act won’t vote for it because they want more privatisation and the Maori Party won’t vote for it because… well, who would know with the Maori Party.
So this week we’ve had the shambles that was the RWC bid and now this.
It’s just fiasco after fiasco for these clowns.
