Last night in the Stuff leaders’ debate Bill English defended Steven Joyce’s lie about a “hole” in Labour’s budget. He kept trying to move the goal posts of course, but he specifically and emphatically agreed with the disproved figure of $11.7 billion.
I honestly thought English was better than that.
Jacinda Ardern took him apart with one simple question (starts about 1:50, watch through to about 1:54)
Bill English has been sucked down into Joyce’s truth hole. He has nothing left now.
Hey National – this lie is costing you the election.
