    As this graph shows MR Key is very ambitious the Sky’s the limit when it comes to unemployment under National.

    • Draco T Bastard 1.1

      Helps to lower wages. The more competition for a job and the more desperate people are the more willing they are to work for less. So, this recession, which NACT have done their utmost to extend, is doing exactly what Jonkey said he wanted.

  2. Sadly the recession & earthquakes(s) are hiding the fact that (surprise surprise) top bracket tax cuts failed to stimulate our economy.

    • Zorr 2.1

      Though the reclassification of all Cantabrians now out of work due to the earthquake or previously on the Unemployment Benefit has meant that “overall beneficiary numbers” have dropped. Sadly whenever anyone seems to mention this in the media they forget that very important fact.

    I’m starting to see Conor English way too much on TV and in the media. Are we going to be subjected to two English’s in the house one day soon?

    Looks like National’s war on beneficiaries is really paying off eh!
