The New Zealand Herald

National’s legacy


Tax cuts? What a mess they left behind. It seems every day there is another report of underfundi­ng of yet another government service. Yes, Bill English did a good job of balancing the books, but at what cost? Many ordinary New Zealanders are suffering because of this constant underfundi­ng. What will be the next item of news on this issue? Strange how none of this underfundi­ng was reported to the media in the months before the election. Roger Haines QC, chairman of the Human Rights Review Tribunal, obviously was not vocal enough to receive front page news when Bill English was Prime Minister.
