Labour is crowing about the drop in unemployment and on the surface it looks fantastic, but the reality is somewhat more concerning.
Since 2000, yes thats right every year since has been a Labour government, sickness and invalid benefits have risen 47 and 38 percent respectively. They may find those stas hard to pin on National.
So what is happening?
Is New Zealand becoming sicker?
Do we have more Invalids?
What about the billions extra spent in Vote Health?
Shouldn't these numbers be going down as well?
All valid questions. You can only hide the truth for so long and people only believe your spin for so long as well.
The pigeons are coming home to roost.
