When he took over as Leader of National, Don Brash said:
"I believed then and I believe even more strongly now that the Labour-Anderton-Green Government is slowly but surely destroying New Zealand.
It is destroying the New Zealand in which we grew up. It is destroying the New Zealand which we all love today and, most importantly, it is destroying the New Zealand that with leadership we could be."
Is this still his opinion today? They are not words Don has uttered much since.
I would be interested to hear how record economic growth, record high employment and low unemployment, a flourishing of the arts and popular culture, the beginnings of a debate on the nation's future and so on, all add up to "destroying New Zealand."
Can anyone help me understand?
