Bulletin 26/7/2017


The MPs are back in parliament.  The Household Incomes Report paints a mixed picture of rising incomes, but mostly for the rich, with higher rates of poverty at the bottom.  Labour and the Greens take every opportunity to talk about homelessness, education funding, welfare, and not cutting taxes.  National’s plan for the Emissions Trading Scheme is apparently to not do very much, to criticism from the Greens.  National’s strategy for this election is the status quo coalition with the Maori Party, ACT, and United Future.
