Miserly, I'll give you miserly

Darien “Smackhead” Fenton is having a whine on Red Alert about how miserly the government is over an ACC provision.

Well how miserly is the government actually:

  • As miserly as not giving tax cuts despite record surpluses?
  • As miserly as not freeing up full herceptin funding, despite staggering rises in the health budget?
  • As miserly as nixing the Plunket helpline?
  • As miserly as lying about the finances in the PREFU leaving the cupboard bare.

Its a shame the National government has to be “miserly” when the past Labour Government wrecked the finances of the nation.

About the only good thing coming out of Red Alert is free hits on folk that are horribly out of touch with the realities of life in the real world.
