That’s the electorate candidate clearly claiming jobs created in the electorate. Lies lies lies.
Northland jobs figures always regional – Joyce
…Mr Joyce said not all the new jobs to which he had referred were in the Northland electorate. “We’re unable to a breakdown sub-regionally and obviously some will be in Whangarei but then there’s also people who live in the Northland electorate that work in Whangarei and vice-versa. So we’re talking about the region economically as a whole.”
New Zealand First leader and candidate, Winston Peters, said National had been misleading about job creation in the electorate and it was clear many of the jobs would have been in Whangarei.
Joyce’s evasions are just more keyesque semantic games – the fact is that the claim has now vanished from the current version of their buy election page.
So, Ghost jobs once again. And that real reduction of 100 unemployed? Overtaken by events on Wednesday. Here’s Duncan Garner:
NATIONAL’S CYNICAL AND DESPERATE BID FOR NORTHLAND
National is fighting for its political life in Northland. They are desperate and they’ve pulled out the chequebook. … And so the bribes are coming thick and fast. That’s how desperate National is.
The 10 one lane bridge upgrades is simply cynical politics that only highlights how desperate National is. That promise has backfired. Even National MPs privately admit that.
And now, today more bad news.
150 forest contractors in the region have lost their jobs at Harvest Pro. This is devastating news. This will hurt.
If National told fewer lies and worked harder on regional development they wouldn’t be in this mess.
