Rogernomics Again – No Way


Date 20 March 2008

Press Release

For Immediate Release.        

Rogernomics Again – No Way!

Labour is the cause, but Act is not the answer says Republicans Deputy Leader Bevan Berg.

“Some of us haven’t forgotten the disaster Douglas left us in the late eighties, and the fact that his government hid the truth, which was only discovered after their election loss”

Yes we have a problem. We can no longer have confidence in the management and direction of Clark and Cullen;

“Clark would have the average New Zealander live on dreams, and Cullen would have us live on three zeros in a bank account.  They are a team of hollow promises,” says Berg.

However, pretending that Douglas in his retirement might have morphed into a financial fix it man, and that he is the stuff dreams are made of,  and that he will put dollars into ever bank account. Yeah Right!  That’s what you told us last time. 

I saw first hand the effects of his slash and burn policies on the NZ Police, and later the ongoing effects on NZ businesses.  God forbid we ever see this man near the cabinet room again.

The problem we need to address is that Clark and Cullen are buried in ideology and not practicality, and that is the source of their managed failure.  It is time for a change of Government, but for those members of the media that didn’t experience this period of New Zealand History; I suggest you consult wider sources than the Act Wikipedia.
