National are now so convinced of their invulnerability that they have taken to actively insulting us – Kiwi workers ‘hopeless’ – English
“Pretty damned hopeless.”
That’s the Finance Minister’s description of some Kiwi workers he made to a Federated Farmers meeting — and he’s standing by it.
Under questioning from Labour’s Iain Lees-Galloway in the House today, Bill English admitted telling the meeting there’s “a cohort of Kiwis who now can’t get a licence because they can’t read and write properly and don’t look to be employable — y’know, basically young males”.
Mr English said he stood by his comments, calling it a “realistic description” of the problem facing the country’s workforce.
Fuck you young males! You couldn’t make this stuff up.
