Will New Zealand Labour ever do this?

While Labour here is busy hating on Sir Peter Leitch the Labour party in the UK is becoming refreshingly honest.

Mr Balls will also say that Labour’s fiscal rules would be independently monitored by the Office for Budget Responsibility, the government spending watchdog. His intervention comes after senior Labour MPs admitted that the party wasted money during its 13 years in power.

Will it ever happen here though?

    Very unlikely to happen here, I’d say. Unfortunately.

    We don’t need to *monitor* government spending.  

    We need to stop it. All of it.
