Out of touch

A survey out today tells us what we already knew: kiwis value conservation. We love our national parks, think they are a good use of government money, and would like the government to spend more on them.

Meanwhile, National is gutting DoC, subjecting it to the second restructuring in two years and firing frontline staff in order to free up a paltry $9 million.

Its a perfect example of how out of touch National are, and how out of step they are with kiwi values. But then, that's what happens if you spend your life on Planet Key.
