The bottom of the barrel

The day after a another terrible poll the Nats are scraping the bottom of the barrel with headlines along the lines of Nats attack $1.6m cost of PM's travel

Is Tony Ryall seriously contending that the Prime Minister should not be a face of New Zealand to the world? Should not represent New Zealand at overseas trade forums? Should not allow our business people to coat-tail into meetings? Should not try to present our foreign policy to the world?

Or is Mr Ryall simply trying to stir up a few thousand angry talkback listeners?

This is desperate and pathetic. I cannot agree that the Prime Minister should not travel.

  • Its hardly a new thing though is it? Havnt the Nats been trying to get traction on this "issue" for a while?

    It is probably true that the PM has endulged in a lot more overseas travel this year than in times gone by, but I dont see that cost as being overly excessive, $1.6m is a drop in the bucket really.
