Kate Hawkesby: I feel for our young people, no wonder they want to leave NZ


“Politicians have sucked the life out of young New Zealanders” this according to a very good opinion piece in the Herald yesterday by University Macro Economics professor Robert McCulloch. McCulloch argues the Government took away their dreams by sucking the air out of them, they’re lonely – he cites a NZ study showing:“Loneliness is highest among people aged 15-24. “People aged under 25 are least likely to report life is worthwhile and less likely to vote than young people in other OECD countries". So much time spent pandering to the fringes and the margins that the middle is forgotten and entirely over looked. They’re despondent, disillusioned and wanting to bail, how's that good for NZ?
