Debt Projections

Keith Ng blogged last night that debt under National would increase by $12.8 billion. Many on the left have copied and linked to the post.

However Keith was wrong, and has done the very decent thing by correcting the record, which is a small increase of only $3.2 billion. Nice thing about blogs.

The lesson for future may be that just because staff are not on hand at 730 pm at night to talk to you, it is worth waiting to talk to them the next morning – especially when not on a daily deadline like a newspaper. Especially after you have been told that John Key has said you are wrong.
