Hipkins admits Labour’s 2017 manifesto was a lie

The Herald reports:

Labour leader Chris Hipkins admits his party’s Auckland light rail and KiwiBuild policies were “undeliverable” when proposed ahead of the 2017 election.

These were their two most well known promises. They achieved 2% of one and 0% of the other. And Hipkins is admitting that basically they knew they were undeliverable.

“Auckland light rail and KiwiBuild were massive commitments, and the reality is they were too ambitious to do from Opposition. We shouldn’t have gone into the campaign promising those two things.”

But you did. And why should we think your 2026 promises will be any different?
