Stop promising, Jacinda

Given child poverty reduction isn't playing well for Jacinda, she might reflect on this piece of realism and honesty from Don Brash as National opposition leader in 2005:
When asked to guarantee his policies would not lead to an increase in child poverty, Don Brash told Morning Report "look there's a cycle of these things, they go up and down. I can't promise anything in that area."
It's bat shit crazy to vow to reduce child poverty given  the many measures with relativity as the mainstay anyway.

Kids will do better when the adults and the country they live in does better.
