Speech in the House: Bill English shows lack of leadership

Posted 22nd Mar 2017

Today in the house I spoke about the lack of leadership from Bill English on housing, health and jobs.

Being Prime Minister means more than making observations such as the loss of Cadbury jobs being "a huge thing for workers, who may prove to be more resilient than expected". More than a "whatever" approach to people who are frightened about being kicked out of their state house and not being able to afford a market rental.

It means understanding that our health system is fundamentally cracked when an 89 year old has been prepped four days in a row for an operation with no food until late at night.

Being a leader isn't easy. But Bill English isn't filling the shoes.
