Goes to show the difference between information and experience.

The lady must have a lot on her mind.

"I can tell you from my neighbourhood ... a sale across the road only further reinforced for me why we needed to act. "

It's reminiscent of Trump's "this guy I know, he told me a thing, it was incredible, nobody knows this thing, but this thing, someone should do something about it, incredible, I had no idea" word salad template.

This government does seem to treat the two terms as semantically equivalent. Which is, you know, terrible.

Collins criticizing like she's got a leg to stand on when National has slashed more than Labour on mental health spending, let alone simply "not spending" funding.

Not saying Labour are looking rosy here - they're not - but this rank hypocricy of "we would have been sacked [if we'd been the ones to do this]" irks.

I have no issue with any of this. A "first draft" is never right, but they are doing good work here.

Yeah, Collins is being a real dick.

Mental health practice is hugely complicated, in large part because it's a political football. We loved when National were telling us the wonderful news of saving money, cooking up investment strategies, don't worry about people crying over their hobby horses.

Spending money doesn't solve this, it can cause problems of its own. There are many people suffering chronic deprivation in New Zealand, many will know how to align themselves with whatever it is that offers some kind of resourcing. Which skews where need really lies.

What's needed is stability, not constant flux.

The fuck? What they’re doing is dogshit. The first draft is abhorrent.
