There is a lovely example in today’s Herald showing exactly why Phil Goff the worldwide expert on Goofynomics and Visanomics hasn’t got a clue and should not be trusted with the accounts of even the local bowling club.

Firstly he couldn’t even get his parachute soldier of fortune candidate to campaign in the Mt Albert electorate but he offered this enterprising solution to the current economic crisis;

Mr Shearer and leader Phil Goff campaigned at the Avondale shops yesterday, commiserating with retailers whose takings have taken a knock in the recession.

The fact that it happened to be in David Cunliffe’s New Lynn electorate did not deter them. Most of the shoppers came from the Mt Albert electorate, said Mr Shearer.

In and out of the emporiums, the cut-price shoe store, the tinned fish and beef shop, the dairies and the dress shops, Mr Goff said he was keeping his fingers crossed for them that things would come right soon.

Wow!, now there’s a solution for the crisis, wee all keep our fingers crossed. The man is an idiot.
