Despite this massive increase in spending, many government services are actually getting worse.
Under Labour, taxpayer money has been wasted by bungling bureaucrats, including on:
- Half a billion dollars’ worth of wasted rapid antigen tests
- $50 million investigating a bike bridge to nowhere
- Over $380 million per year on first year fees free
- $1.5 billion per year on corporate welfare
- A 30% increase in the size of the public service
