WIIFM – what’s in it for me – is the lens through which a lot of people look at politics.
That’s understandable for several reasons, not least of which is that previous governments accustomed us to short-term lolly scramble, vote buying policies rather than those which made a positive difference to the country for the longer term.
National has changed direction making a virtue out of the necessity to cut back the burden of government and return to surplus.
That has meant there have been no lolly scrambles but there has been a change in economic direction which is good for us all.
Policies which are good for the country are good for individuals, families and businesses.
