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.
