There’s been a bit of debate on The Standard about what National actually stands for. Up until now there have been those who have bought the Nats’ “moderate” rebranding. Yesterday though, Key and Ryall let the cat out of the bag. They haven’t changed at all. They’re the same old National Party.
In what marks a clear return to the failed health policies of the 90’s Key said “the market” and competition will set doctors’ fees – if people don’t like the price, they can “go down the road”.
Watch the look on Key’s face as the Nats real health agenda is accidently revealed. It’s the same stunned mullet look he produced in the house when his contradictory remarks on Iraq (link to YouTube video) were revealed. Move over blue steel.
