"As for Cullen, he left the NZ government’s books in the best state they have been in for a generation. Only at the last minute was he ambushed by the idiotic baying for “tax cuts” we were never going to be able to afford.
Cullen resisted tax cut pressure for several years - saying *explicitly* a “rainy day” was bound to come. He referred to debt problems overseas and possible trouble arrising form that. This was 3 years before the eventual crash.
National? Oblivious to it all…..Couldn’t see it coming.
…and you lot bag Cullen?
Those of us who know how this world really works dont’ deserve to suffer the stupidity that National and it’s supporters will insist on inflicting on us. But the most galling part is the arrogant IGNORANCE of the braying fools as they do it."
