This government is falling over themselves being so dumb. How can Robertson say he beat the set target and saved the country as he spent less than predicted, what. When did labour predict anything ?
Fact is labour has borrowed and printed far more than any government in NZs history and most has not been spent on what it was intended for. The media needs to be completely starved oc public money. This will prove the corruption of the media. And by taking public money off the media it will do two things, firstly it will encourage the media to gain funding from commercial businesses, that’s every it should be funded from. And secondly, the media must be never held to one political side or the other. If there is ever s bias it will be at the cost of the success of that media and is not subsidized by a political party.
Any political party who pays off the media must be held in contempt of the parliamentary election services. Laws need to be in place to cap policy influences in the media.
