Talk is cheap

The government has changed their stance on immigration in regards to construction, with an estimated 30 thousand foreign workers to be brought in to fill a skills shortage so the government can build houses.

It just goes to show how much policy can change between opposition and government.

In opposition, they wanted to slash immigration by as much as 30 thousand.

Now they are bringing in 30 thousand workers.

Populism gets you into government, but once you are in, all of a sudden that populism can’t translate into real policy.

I expect we will see this in every change of government ever, to be honest.

But that’s democracy.
