Bribe-o-meter update

The latest costing of parties spending pledges:

  1. NZ First $23 billion or $13,324/household
  2. Labour $19.4 billion or $11,242/household
  3. Maori Party $12.1 billion or $7,060/household
  4. TOP $10.7 billion or $6,199/household
  5. Greens $8.5 billion or $4,939/household
  6. National $6.8 billion or $3,920/household
  7. ACT -$5.4 billion or -$3,103/household

So if you had a Labour/NZ First Government where says Labour gets 90% of their spending and NZ First gets 50%, the cost per househould would be almost $17,000 over the next three years.

They have also given each party a transparency rating for providing enough detail to allow the policiesto be costed. The ratings are:

  • 5 stars – Greens, National
  • 4 stars – Labour, TOP
  • 3 stars – ACT
  • 1 star – Maori Party
  • 0 stars – NZ First
