Labour at sixes and sevens over Child Care Policy

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

As David Farrar pointed out there is a press release from Bill English outlining the spin and down right lies of the Labour Party over National’s recently released policy on Early Childhood Care.

“Judith Tizard visited a centre in Auckland last week and issued a press release saying this was just the sort of centre where children would benefit from Labour’s 20-hours-free childcare policy,” says Mr English.

“Unfortunately, the centre is privately owned. It is just the sort of centre Labour wants out of business. The children in it won’t qualify for Labour’s toddler lottery, where only one in 10 parents can win.

“If Trevor Mallard can’t explain this stupid policy to his own Cabinet how will Labour ever explain it to the 90% of families with children under five who won’t be qualifying for it?

“Mr Mallard should also tell his colleagues that only 22,000 children will benefit from Labour’s tinkering – that’s less than 10% of under-fives.”

These guys are inveterate liars who dress the fibs up as “spin”.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
