Labour's new small business policy: Ignore the buggers

Labour's Minister of Small Business Rick Barker has demonstrated to Tauranga businessmen the contempt and lack of understanding that the Labour Government has for small businessmen. As small businessmen explain how they are strangled in bureaucrats and red tape, Rick Barker does his own impression of a disinterested bureaucrat by sitting back ignoring them and spending the meeting texting like a teenager.

To paraphrase Voltaire, it will be a great day when the last politician is strangled by the guts of the last bureaucrat.
