This Government can barely deliver a letter.
Certainly all its cornerstone, showpiece, flagship promises – call them what you like – have failed, the latest being the so-called transformational billion dollar light rail project from the Auckland CBD to the Airport.
Phil Twyford the builder – could he build it – No, he couldn’t.
What can this lot do? Why are Aucklanders paying the extra 10 cents a litre petrol tax – remind me of the transport projects we’re paying for again?
What a massive fail. And add it to the list of shame.
Kiwibuild – fail.
Capital Gains Tax – fail.
Reducing Child Poverty – fail – the Children’s Commissioner says benefit levels need to rise for that to happen.
Climate Change? Fail – sure the zero-carbon law is here, but farmers and truckies have an out – years of consultation is hardly transformational.
But at least they have suceeded at one thing:
They have had one success though – on Wednesday night – a law passed allowing prisoners who have served less than three years to vote at this election.
Passing this law under urgency!
