Mr Goff says the person who should be most grateful for the legacy left by Michael Cullen is the current Finance Minister Bill English.
Oh yes, Bill gets up every morning I am sure and says to Mary “Boy am I glad Michael Cullen left me a structural $10 billion a year deficit”.
He gets in to work and tells his staff “Think how boring our job would be if Dr Cullen had not increased spending by $4.5 billion a year in his last budget”.
At Cabinet every week Bill reminds his colleagues of how good a legacy Dr Cullen left them, as he screws them departmental budgets down.
Goff should do stand up comedy if he really said that with a straight face.Tags: Bill English, Michael Cullen, Phil Goff
