John Banks on child poverty

Keeping Stock has posted  John Bank's parliamentary speech about child poverty. I hesitated, wasn't going to bother and then thought better of it. I recommend you give it a few minutes of your time. Banks seems to be the only politician left standing who is saying you cannot solve child poverty by taking from the rich to give to the poor. We've tried it and it's failed. Miserably. It's an impassioned speech in parts addressed to Hone Harawira who constantly tries to shout him down. Good for you Banks. And thanks Keeping Stock for drawing my attention to it. This ACT on message. May they stay there.
