Roger Douglas couldn’t resist making a contribution to the Holidays Amendment Bill in the House last night. I’m not judging the quality of his speech – you can do that for yourselves – but I did find it remarkable how his comments echo those of the righties who plough in and defend “choice” on this blog.
Let’s get this clear : the only reason there is any discussion about a fourth weeks leave – tradeable or not – is because the Labour Government introduced it. Otherwise would Roger Douglas and his acolytes be arguing for trading the third weeks leave?
Oh that’s right. They did. And the first week and the second. In fact, why bother having holidays at all?
