And sinks his barbs through honesty

New Zealand's Finance Minister explains the outcome of his two-and-a-half years at the helm of the economy:
Mr English says the financial situation is much worse than that which confronted National when it first formed the Government
Overseas readers might be surprised by English's willingness to make this kind of admission, and his freedom to argue that it requires moar of the current policies (austerity and tax cuts!). They do not know the state of the Labour Opposition.

But what if the horses have stopped to drink? It is, after all, what we led them to the water for.

Another Kiwi said...

Sir! Riding while drunk is bad form! Sir!

Little known fact:

SMUT is a recursive acronym.

Smut's Muscat Undermines Truth.

Alternatively rendered as:

Smut's Muscat Undermines Time.

But very few people are willing to acknowledge the presence of those time people...
