A research team led by the PM's husband Peter Davies has found that families are no better off financially than 20 years ago. The team includes a sociologist who says;
"What's scary in New Zealand is that it hasn't got better under Labour".
I suppose if National had been government he would have said, no wonder. Hardly an objective academic.
Professor Davis told a Sociological Association conference in Hamilton this week that each Census cost $25 million, but until now the Government had not got that value of data from it.
They cost a damn sight more than that. That little bit of 'research' wasn't quite up to the mark.
