Quick! Everybody change partners! Switch it up! – Sarah Palin comes out in support of North Korea and David Cunliffe comes out in supports of not-quite-but-kind-of-privatisation-but-not-really. It’s like that movie, you know?

Back in August Paula Rebstock, a former commerce commission head and therefore the most appropriate person to make these sorts of life-and-death decisions, released her welfare working group’s issue paper which set us off like a firecracker in episode 50 (highlight here). Rebstock is back this week, with her group’s recommendations.
