One of New Zealand's most destructive politicians in our history has his final day in Parliament today.
Michael Cullen presided over an economic boom which had its genesis in the 1980s and had not been seen for generations. He then taxed and spent the economy into such a hemorrhaging economic state it will take another generation to get back to real economic growth.
His legacy is a massive crumbling State service, bloated with civil servants with nothing constructive to do and as a result middle income families with high debt taxed to the hilt to pay for the whole thing!
A venal, nasty, arrogant incompetent evil socialist prick who never had a real job in his whole life - is there any other kind of socialist?
The post office is the perfect place for him to go.
I should have tripped him when I had the chance.
