Stones and glasshouses
When will the current Government learn that they are there to govern this country not blame the Opposition.
An example very recently, when the Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter, on national television, after a horrific weekend road toll stated that ‘‘the cause of this high death rate is the old National government’’.
Figures show that during the nine years from 1999-2008 of Clark’s Labour government the country sustained 3946 road deaths.
For the nine-year period 2008-2017 under the Key/English administrations the country sustained 2910.
Maybe the current Government is so used to being an ineffectual Opposition that it has got into the habit of blame. As they say, ‘‘old habits die hard’’. The same mystical they say that, ‘‘those who live in glass houses should not throw stones’’.
