Dear John Key - stop using Greece as a justification for austerity
Goldman Sachs showed the Greeks how to hide their debt to get into the Euro club while unbelievably betting against them on the derivatives market.
What Greece is certainly an example of is austerity induced depression. On top of the hundreds of jobs axed at MFAT and TPK, Key is to announce on Thursday 3000 more public service jobs are to be cut with department services to be merged and up to 3 prisons closed. When John Key said he was going to cap the public service, he meant knee-cap.
By following the same Greek austerity while using Greece as the justification is the utter definition of Machiavellian smoke screens. This Government have an ideological default setting of government with a microscopic g. After the free market dogma has proven it doesn't work outside a Keynesian managed capitalism model, this Government wants to implement more of it.
Selling our assets off to those wealthy enough to have been granted tax cuts by John Key is the insult on the injury.
Meanwhile, bennie bashing policy is passed that won't do a damned thing other than exacerbate poverty.
So, John Key starts austerity policies while using Greece as a justification even though their downfall is because they have implemented austerity policies?
Seeing as NZers think of themselves as consumers and not citizens, I wonder when they will start feeling buyers remorse for John Key's second term?
