But he would spend more

Phil Goff is talking about debt:

Debt is out of control … we’ve been downgraded for the first time in 13 years. Labour has a serious plan to deal with that debt. We’ve got to get that debt down.”

Mr Goff said the party’s policies were fully costed and affordable.

 Labour has promised to spend $16 billion more than National so far in this election, that is going to have to be funded from debt. It isn;t really credible for Phil Goff to talk about paying down debt when his own spending plans massively increase it.

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.
