Good on TV3. Finally someone in the media has asked Labour Leader David Shearer for a little bit of detail about his un-costed Lotto housing policy. Of course the media have been somewhat distracted but now Shearer’s leadership is secure until February they can start focusing on their dreadful policies.
It’s not a minor detail either. How many sections will the taxpayer need to buy? Shearer couldn’t um, er, ah answer.
Too often Labour’s been allowed to get away with headline grabbing slogans and they’re never pressured for any detail or costing. Their capital gains tax is a case in point. Not even they know how it will work, and Labour are never challenged on the detail.
