Agenda fact checking

Very amusing to watch the students do fact checking on . They found:

  • Lockwood Smith was only half right in claiming 80,000 Kiwis had left last year, as did not take account of returning Kiwis
  • David Parker was only half right in claiming they have doubled the compensation to forestry owners as in fact has only increased by 50% on original offer
  • Most amusingly of all they found Nick Smith’s comment that the first policy released by Labour in this campaign was a National policy was 100% correct. They checked both the Beehive website and the Labour Party website and could not find a single 2008 election policy listed.
