When a politician reaches for some information to score a point against political opponents, it pays to check for consistency with other policy positions.
A recent example from the Labour Party was revealing.
Labour members have been busy attempting to look furious that the government has not reduced ACC levy rates as much as possible. They think the government is playing politics on this issue.
Well what do they expect?
ACC is a government agency – of course it’s a political football. That’s what happens with government agencies.
