Former National Party leader and head of the 2025 Taskforce Don Brash says the Government has a mediocre policy programme which will not achieve its goals.One thing I'll give Brash - when it comes to mediocrity he knows his stuff.
The taskforce's report last year recommended a series of policy changes to lift productivity in an attempt to lift New Zealand's living standards to those of Australia's by 2025.Umm... I think they were also criticised because they ACTUALLY WON'T WORK. (sorry, started to shout there. I often find myself shouting when the name "Don Brash" appears in the press).
They were widely criticised as radical and politically impossible to implement because they would have meant reversing National's election promises.
Brash's deluded opinion piece can be read here. Suggest you have something nearby you can punch and are happy to damage.
