If you have a few spare minutes I recommend you listen to Laila Harre and Matthew Hooton on Nine to Noon discussing the Super Fund.

    was it my imagination, or was the mediator more left than the left-wing guest? *coughtypicalcough*

    No I noticed that also. Kathryn was very isolated on this one.

    Thanks for the link DPF. It was quite interesting, and nice to see people able to have a reasoned discussion rather than just shouting at each other.

    It’s Radio NZ, that’s not particularly surprising Jcw.

    Laila Harre and her grouping in the Alliance were never in favour of the Super Fund. At the 2002 election the Alliance saw the Cullen Fund as deferred social spending in essential areas such as public health and education, and that increased tax from a higher educated populace, after receiving fully funded public education, would pay for future pensions.

    Thanks for that, David. Really good radio! I did not take from it that Kathryn was so much left wing, as she was ignorant of economic and financial realities. Laila Harre and Matthew Hooton are generally well informed, albeit from clear and distinct political positions. What became clear is that Kathryn simply is not in the same league as those two, and was struggling to keep up.
