Prime Minister John Key has credited his government’s economic policies for the price of fruit and vegetables falling by 6.5%.
Some ‘experts’ have argued that if prices have fallen it’s probably because the strong dollar relative to our trading partners has seen the world price internationally traded foods fall when dominated in New Zealand dollars.
But those guys are dicks. It’s clearly because of all those fruit and vegetable price reduction policies the government has introduced.
Others have pointed out that the fruit price index is really only down 3.9% since November 2008 and vegetables are actually up 14.4%.
But who are you going to believe? The facts or that Nice Man Mr Key?
The Prime Minister could not be contacted for further comment because he was holding a press conference unveiling further details for the government-sponsored piss-up at ‘Party Central’ and new laws criminalising parents who let teens have a sip of wine with dinner.
