This article goes some way towards explaining why our "spray and walk
away" past prime minister should go back to his gated community and
stay there. . .
It goes a long way to laying the blame on successive governments for failing us in our health system Rich!
Indentifying the source of a problem and its causes goes more than half way towards solving it.
So what fundamental, endemic problems lie at the core - the epicentre - of our Health Services failures, and how should they now be corrected and resolved?
We need a government that acknowledges we have specific Health-related
issues - inadequate resources and the increased staffing levels should
additional resources be provided (think ICU beds and hospital
resources, doctors and nurses etc). We need a Government that uses
our history only as a research resource to generate credible
corrective actions rather than as a political point-scoring resource.
With respect, the immediately foregoing states a need, and then some. But none of it identifies the fundamental, endemic problem that lies behind that need. Until those failures are confronted by sure-fire policies that will eliminate them or at least considerably mitigate them, there can be no secure, long-term remedy for the health service or any other critical public-service outfit for that matter.

We need a Government that has a credible delivery track record.
Labour and National don't meet these criteria, but National shades
Labour in delivery (but NOT on Health issues).
There is not a zero-productivity rentier, speculator, monetiser, casino owner or any other wealth-extract you can name who will gainsay you, this being punitively evident to those not only with eyes to see and ears to hear, but having no roof over their head to call a home of their own - for life. And no, it's not all down to the RMA, either - that fig-leaf fallback of those earlier-times, sitting pretty, boomer and beamer freeholders who have (relatively speaking) never had it so good.
Which brings us back to the subject of the thread - meddlesome John Key with his smug once-over-lightly, uninformed rhetoric:
