On July 21 2009 David Cunliffe opposed the raising of the retirement age:
“Labour is committed to retaining the age of eligibility at 65 and entitlement at 66% of the average wage,” David Cunliffe said.
“Labour’s policy remains that it is committed to reinstating payments into the Fund to ensure the security of pensions for New Zealanders for the future.
Does David stand by his statement of 2009, or has he too performed a flip-flop like Phil Goff?
Labour has spent years and years bashing National on superannuation and the retirement age and yet it is them that is now bringing in the very things they accused National of attempting to do.
