140 billion dollar typographical error dismissed as unimportant by Grant
But a 4 billion dollar equally silly error was apparently the end of the world
when Ntaional made it.
Politicians are amazingly childish when they are looking for votes.
Critics can be amazingly childish looking to find fault when only an
idiot could have ever been misled . . .
Corrected within an hour - whereas Goldsmith still denies one of his
errors, still uses the wrong numbers for average wage, and Collins has
not apologised for saying Samoa closed borders a month earlier than NZ
- in fact it was two days after NZ.
National liars, see everyone else through that lens . . .
Goldsmith admitted the first two almost immediately. The final one has yet to
be proven to be an error.
Since you choose to compare competencies, an axis on a **representative**
graph had mistakenly been labelled dollars not percentages. Unlike
Goldsmithâs glaring schoolboy **policy** howlers, Robertson's policy
calculations themselves - the bit wot matters - were perfectly in order. No
And as if that were not uplifting enough during such stressful times,
Stuffâs level-headed Coughlan specifically highlights that "Labour would have
about $56b of debt in 2025-26, a remarkable effort, considering that on the eve
of the Covid-19 crisis in 2019, the Government had just $56b worth of debtâ.
Even so, âthe best laid plans of mice and men...â)
For you off-topic, yes, but word is that Peters and his party have been
exonerated from dubious charges of election funding fraud, which is all to the
good since it eliminates all doubt and uncertainty as to that gentlemanâs
towering probity and exquisitely balanced judgement. Whether this translates
into improved polling for his party remains to be seen.
So, taken overall, whatâs not to like, eh, particularly since business
confidence under Labour is now also well and truly on the up? In fact, many of
our infinitely wealthier partner OECD economies would give their right arms not
only to swap for our current economic circumstances but also for Ardernâs
handling of the Covid-19 crisis.
To end on your lamentably trite kindergarten whinge, Iâm sure even you would
agree that the fragrant Ardern is nothing if not all-inclusive, even going so
far as to shelter yapping misogynists like the Little Trentham Troll under her
wing, dutiful, bounteous mother hen that she is.
Mustn't grumble, aye!
Your blind obedience to the left is noted by all.
The facts are clear. Both made mistakes and they are both politicians and there
you really do have it. Equal in failure and artifice.
