A very well-produced youtube vid on National’s distortions over ACC
The clever thing National has done is set up ACC as the agent of its own demise. With Business Roundtable member John Judge in charge ACC has become a propaganda wing for National’s anti-ACC rubbish.
Judge and Nick Smith have created a false air of crisis. They have lied about the numbers. Judge’s newspaper ads seem to have been calculated to enrage the public against ACC.
This is the only way National can ultimately succeed in its agenda to privatise ACC. Right now, ACC is simply far too popular to mess with (62% of people trust ACC and have confidence in it, 82% of clients are satisfied). National’s aim is to change that, and Judge is their primary weapon. If he can walk away in a couple of year’s time with ACC’s reputation in ruins and private insurers profiting he will consider his job well done.
