Surplus: The biggest broken promise ever
Bill English has failed to deliver on his double-election campaign promise of a surplus by this year, instead delivering seven deficits out of seven budgets, says Labour’s Finance Spokesperson Grant Robertson.
“The Government spent seven years and two election campaigns promising a surplus to New Zealanders this year. During last year’s election campaign John Key repeatedly told Kiwis the books were already in surplus. He was wrong and completely misled the public.
