Labour’s approach to costing its election policies bemuses me.
It’s a bit like building a house without knowing how much the labour and materials will cost.
How difficult is it to cost each policy as it’s being developed and keep a running total?
Opposition parties don’t have the same access to the books the government does, but since the books were opened in the PREFU Labour has had all the information it’s needed.
National even gave them a helping hand by costing their policies for them.
A party that appears to find it so difficult to work out what its policies cost and how to pay them is in need of budget advice and obviously doesn’t have the skills needed to handle the nation’s Budget.
