Here’s part of his latest piece of political puffery, frothing about the forthcoming National Conference:
Throw in Bill English’s diversification of how the state does its business, which gives National more of a look than Labour as the party generating modern policy in a changing world. Delegates can celebrate the smaller state they yearn for and moralise about, and also feel the cabinet has innovative energy.
Oh yes. A “small” state, and constantly getting constantly “smaller”…
…one whose debt has just ticked over the NZ$100 billion mark:
Colin James has history talking up Bill English: he was chief cheerleader for English as National leader (talking again about his “insightful” “modern” policy-generation) the election year that English became Mr 22%.
Colin James is a moron. But not an un-partisan one.[Hat tip Lindsay Mitchell. Debt figures from http://www.nationaldebtclocks.org/ and NZ Treasury.]
