National's New Zealand

A stagnant economy. 154,000 unemployed. Record high inflation. And now, record food-bank use, driven by WINZ erecting bureaucratic barriers to people accessing assistance.

This is National's New Zealand: where the poor are denied assistance because it might cost the rich money. But it is the government's job to help those in need - and National is simply failing to do this.
