The Methamphetamine Fiasco The 25 years of glorious journey of
The latest findings about methamphetamine effect in Housing New Zealand
houses have come at a time when National Party hawks were constantly targeting
the Labour led government accusing them of financial mismanagement and
failure on all fronts since their taking over the reins.
Bharatiya Mandir
A multitude of problems caused by the last National Government are becoming
more and more apparent. This is probably the biggest embarrassment for National
Party in recent times since they have always been critical of the Labour led alliance
after failing to form a government last year.

Apparently, seems like there was no control of the previous National government
over decisions that led to a hundred million dollars spend. They were incompetent,
rather than malevolent.

National leader Simon Bridges says the National government was basically
ignorant of the problems. Simon Bridges welcomed the new report out yesterday
on methamphetamine, saying new findings meant more people could occupy
more houses but rejected speculation the previous Government was captured by
the industry. “If the standard was too high, in a sense, it’s good news if it comes
down. It means we can have more people housed in more houses,” he said. But he
rejected any suggestion the previous Government was not as critical of the meth
investigation and contamination industry as it could have been. “Ultimately it was
the same deal with us as it will be with this current Government,” he says.
