One of the ministers nailing his new job, in my humble opinion, is Commerce Minister Kris Faafoi.
He got onto the Takata airbag recall, he’s talking butt kicking for wheel clampers, and now we hear the news he’s on to Visa and Mastercard over their fees. …
What I like about Kris Faafoi is that he manages to fire these broadsides at businesses without personal attacks or bully boy tactics. He’s grabbed his portfolio and is running with it, making a lot of noise, by being a voice for the little guys: the consumers, the small business operators.
He’s doing it without the loose lines and the throwaway insults that Shane Jones employs.
So although he may not always make the front page, he is quietly reassuring us mere mortal consumers, that he has our back. And that’s a good thing.
I agree. Faafoi is doing a good job.
