The Herald reports:
Mr Parker said Mr Key’s position, including his pledge to resign rather than increase the age of eligibility was “just populism” intended as a vote catcher.
“We know that it’s wrong to be spending more on super than education, that it comes at the cost of caring for children, and yet he has got his head in the sand.
Vote Education is $12.4 billion.
Vote Superannuation is $10.9 billion.
I would have though a Finance Spokesperson would know this.
I of course do support increasing the age of eligibility for superannuation, and delinking it from the average wage.Tags: David Parker, Education, superannuation
