Red Katie isn’t happy either

You’d have to say that Andrew Little’s much touted pre-budget speech has gone down like a cup of cold sick amongst the journalists.

I watched Katie Bradford wiggle her way through her summary and was left with the distinct impression she was unimpressed.

She was quite disparaging.

Joyce was right, Little’s speech was a collection of slogans unsupported by any facts.  

Short of any specifics One News took to the streets and even quoted one person as saying they were devastated that there was no increased mental health funding. I can’t believe their editor let that one through…the budget hasn’t even been delivered and yet this woman is devastated by a lack of funding?

Bradford slammed Little by stating that he struggled to answer the question on whether he thinks one of the solutions for Auckland’s housing crisis was to bring housing prices down. Andrew Little can’t answer that question, because in order to do so they are going to tell Aucklanders that they need their house values to drop and that they are going to do it to them. Any politician who thinks that is a vote winner is deluded.

When interviewed after her pre-recorded piece she used words like “no big new ideas”, “mixed messages”, “unclear”, and “vague”.

So if a big pinko like Katie Bradford can’t cover for Andrew Little and neither can Claire Trevett then you know that he missed the mark…massively.
