Who can forget John Key, Judith Collins, Tony Ryall inter alia blaming Helen Clark for murder rates when Labour was in government.
It was of course nonsense, and I’m not going to suggest Key is personally responsible for each murder in New Zealand, and I’m not going to blame the Police as they did either.
But for the record there were 65 murders in the last financial year, didn’t break the record of 68 in 1996 (when National was in government) but well above average, and the highest figure since that 1996 peak.
Any apology John. Or are you going to take responsibility as you suggested Helen should?
