Strong Leadership From Key

Now is not the time for partisan politics on the response to the international financial crisis. Yes the Government fucked up big time last week. But did Key try and make political capital from Cullen incompetence??? No, he has offered today a bipartisan approach.

We are pleased that Key is recognising the importance of the crisis coming at us through the failure by the Government to guarantee international wholesale market transactions.

Cullen today seemed to confirm that banks only have enough money to get through to Christmas. We are glad he admitted this. Unlike Cullen we do not see this as any excuse for complacency.

Well done Fran O'Sullivan for forcing this response.
