It was a wonderful family afternoon today. A walk to the park in the crisp afternoon sun followed by a well-deserved cuppa at the local cafe. One shoulder ride home later and a young son and his parents were tucked up inside safely protected from the cooling afternoon.
I went to the letterbox to check the mail. As I progressed up the path my mind wandered to how dull the day was becoming. The winter sun had blanketed itself in some high cloud. What I really needed was a touch of brightness. When I opened the letterbox, there it was.
Addressed to, “The Householder” an envelope direct from the office of the Prime Minister. Excitedly I opened the envelope fully aware the PM wouldn’t be just writing to anybody. He wanted me. The Householder.
Inside was a marvelous piece of work. A brightly coloured brochure, many shades of blue, telling me how the National Party had helped many, many New Zealand families over recent years.
There’s nothing better than standing outside your rented house in Geraldine, the town you moved to because you couldn’t afford the $500,000 2-bedroom motel units on offer in Auckland, and having a fantastic series of well thought out infographics staring back at you.
Infographics like this:
What Mr Key is saying is absolutely true. My after-tax wages are increasing faster than I can keep up. Yes my student loan repayments have increased, and yes GST has increased, and yes food prices, power prices and petrol have all increased in that time, but my wages are definitely higher than they were under the previous Labour junta.
It’s wonderful to see the National Party in schools teaching our children. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing a politician with no previous experience mucking in and getting his or her hands dirty educating our children – especially those in the poorer suburbs. What’s even more exciting is how they’ve not let statistical analysis or margins of error get in the way of their pronouncements. Really super stuff.
This was the brightest moment in all of the brochure.
Fantastic! $5.6 million saved. This is indeed very bright news. $5.6 million is enough to build a 19.2 metre length of nationally significant roadway.
Put on your shades my friends because the dazzlingly bright future is already upon us.
