I like to post a Quote of the Day on my Twitter account (twitter.com/kiwiwit) and have decided I will post the best or worst here.
Today's QOTD is in the "so dumb it should be illegal" category and comes from Canterbury University political scientist Bronwyn Hayward on Minister of Finance Bill English's budget due out today:
"I think what is most disappointing about this tenure is the emphasis English gives to economic growth as 'the only way we can lift incomes, create permanent jobs'."
So, how else are we going to lift incomes and create permanent jobs? Wave a Socialist wand?
