Former Finance Minister Steven Joyce says his claims of a fiscal hole in Labour's books have been proven right.
His claims of an $11.7 billion fiscal hole were widely rejected last year, however, independent economist Cameron Bagrie believes Mr Joyce will eventually be vindicated.
Steven Joyce told Mike Hosking Labour simply didn't get its costings right.
" The amount of money which they have set aside for things like coalitions and public service pay increases was ridiculously small."
