Sums up Labour perfectly

National has pledged to fund 20 new elective surgery theatres and train 800 additional surgeons, anaesthetists and nurses to staff them.

And what is ’s response:

Minister of David Cunliffe said the plan was an “unworkable imitation of current Labour Party policy” and questioned where National would find the additional medical staff given the shortages.

The only way to build 20 theatres would be through privatisation, he said.

This sums up everything wrong with Labour. They would rather have 20 less operating theatres, than have the private sector involved. Their concern is not the health needs of New Zealanders, but their anti private sector ideology.

And I won’t even try and comprehend how you privatise an operating theatre that currently doesn’t even exist!
