The fiction that National is doing a competent job of managing the economy is entirely due, now that the boom from Dairy and Christchurch rebuilding is ending, to immigration and rising house prices.
They are now riding a bolting horse that they cannot dismount, caused by their own inaction.
Restrictions on immigration, and/or house prices will expose their house of cards for what it is. As well as losing all those who are voting National, so they can continue to speculate on tax free housing gains.
Also many more National voters are exposed to the housing market in Auckland, than any other party, but the Greens. The National swing voters who vote for their back pocket will leave en-mass if National does anything to reduce house prices. Green voters will stay with the Greens on principle.
All they can do is kick it down the road, so they can get in next year, (to continue the asset thefts and privatisation of infrastructure their overseas corporate backers pay them for). Hoping that Labour will get blamed for it all, at the inevitable end of Nationals turn in Dictatorship, in 2020.
