Bulletin 8/2/2017


The MPs are back in parliament after Waitangi Day and making speeches.  National congratulates itself on improving NCEA achievement.  The Salvation Army State of the Nation report provides ammunition for Labour and Greens to attack National on homelessness, poverty, and inequality.   New Zealand First takes the opportunity to blame immigrants for the housing shortage.  ACT thinks it’s a great time for a tax cut.
