Matt Burgess, of Burgess and Crampton fame, gave a short interview on Wellington's Newstalk ZB over the weekend on the BERL report; audio file is here.
One thing I would say is that Matt is too nice with regard to Palmer. Palmer was making statements based on the BERL report in April but it appears only asked for advice, from Treasury, on the report in May. Why use the report if you are not sure of its findings? And why ask for advice if you are sure of the findings?
