    Mr Trotter says the Labour Party likely overpromised because it never expected to be in Government.

    Yep, pretty much sums it up. They tried to put pressure on National, not expecting to end up having to govern, and keep their election promises. Now the goalposts are moving and the promises are getting broken, as they come to understand the realities of just how hard it is to keep everybody happy and the books in balance.

    So after all the campaigning, the stats apparently now reveal that in fact absolute poverty is down, and relative poverty has largely been static. What that translates to in normal English is that the number of kids without the basics got less in number, and the gap between rich and poor stayed relative.

    Seems the last government wasn't so right wing after all...........

    I have to admit I was pretty unfair linking that to Gagher.

    I suspect Ardern's enthusiasm for significant change might lead to another three term National government, but time will tell.
