This is shocking data. Are we surprised though? Really? Key has been minimizing the impact of his neo-liberal economics package upon the lower echelons of this increasingly lop sided state of affairs we have for some time now. See the myth that trickle down economics is and see the stark reality of what it causes, right here in these statistics. Children of the ‘great’ nations of US and Great Britain the latter once
heralding“civilization, peace and good government and knowledge of ‘the true God'” (British Parliamentary Papers, 1837) and then little old NZ, now ranking third highest in child poverty! Here we are in a return to the Dickensian era. And Key has scarpered off to Hawaii to escape the heat. Hanging out no doubt in the $6 mill mansion purchased under his watch while back here we have 40K+ homeless sleeping in cars and garages.
