Fran says business confidence won’t improve while coalition argues

Fran O’Sullivan writes:

Jacinda Ardern and Winston Peters… (please) get into a room and sort out your policy differences away from the daily news cycle.

The reason business has lost confidence is frankly due to the uncertainty coming out of the Beehive.

We now have a situation where every policy announced by a Minister is downgraded to a personal preference. This means that no one actually knows what the Government’s policies are. And business need certainty to invest.

Also the failure of the senior members of the Government to listen to feedback on crucial policies that affect business — including the Employment Relations Amendment bill — upsets those that hold the belief that a Government should act in the interests of all New Zealanders. Not just Labour’s paymaster and apparent ultimate controller — the union movement.

Are they a Government for all New Zealanders or just for their paymasters?
