Fine for who?

So, Bill English says the economy is "fine". But fine for who? With 6.5% unemployment, rampant inflation, and stagnant wages, ordinary kiwis are looking at a future of insecurity and falling living standards, with more on the way thanks to National's threatened employment relations "reforms". No sane person would describe that as "fine".

So who was English talking about then? The obvious answer is his mates, the rich. They've been making out like bandits off our misery, with their wealth increasing by 20% in a single year. For them, things are very fine indeed.

Its just another example of how ordinary kiwis are invisible to this government, of how our situation, our pain doesn't count. They're not interested in making us better off. All they care about is their mates at the top.
