ACT leader Rodney Hide today
dismissed Prime Minister Helen Clark's suggestion that
people were afraid of Sir Roger Douglas.
"The only reason
she's come out swinging is because her Party's internal
polling reveals a swing to ACT that will ensure the next
National Government is in a position to fix the chaos
wreaked on our economy by her Labour Government," Mr Hide
"My question to Helen Clark is: what is it about Sir
Roger Douglas policies didn't she like?
"Why did she vote
for every single one when she sat in Cabinet with Sir Roger?
"Why, in the past nine years, has she not undone a single
one of them?
"It is hypocritical in the extreme for Helen
Clark to question a man and his policies she so heartily
endorsed when they were Cabinet Ministers together," Mr Hide

“The Human Rights Commission’s appointment of a second Chief Executive is just the latest example of a taxpayer-funded bureaucracy serving itself at the expense of delivery for New Zealanders,” says ACT MP Todd Stephenson. More
New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal.
