THE INTELLECTUAL POVERTY OF UNICEF NZ

is on display in spades when you consider this statement made by them just three months before the election ... 

"New Zealand has performed poorly in a global report card on children’s well-being, and Kiwi kids will continue to miss out unless there is a massive upheaval in how children’s best interests are served" says child rights organisation UNICEF NZ".

Contrast that to this statement made just 3 days ago ...

 "Babies born in New Zealand have access to high levels of care, education and medical assistance, which is reflected in their long life-spans." ... this from Vivien Maidaborn, Executive Director of UNICEF NZ

What an incredible turnaround in just six months.   Alternatively one might be forgiven for wondering if Ms Maidaborn can lie straight in bed.

But clearly there is still child poverty in NZL evidenced in this photograph of granddaughter Hannah taken two days ago at Rainbow Springs.   Both Veteran and Mrs Veteran have remonstrated with Dad to fork out on a decent pair of jeans for her.

Hat tip ... Lindsay Mitchell
