Its the economy stupid...

If you thought that the opposition parties in NZ had been sounding more than a little shrill lately this may well be the reason. In the last year the economy grew at 4.4% which was the highest economic growth rate in the western world...although the war, oil prices, the rising dollar and the drought in some parts of the country are going to put a damper on this I think the Government deserves a pat on the back...if not for their management than at least for being in the right place at the right time :-)
