I was on The Huddle last night.
There wasÂ a slight change this week after Josie Pagani showed her right wing credentials they have decided to get a real left winger on the show and so David Farrar made an appearance
Our topics were:
- Labour â where did it all go so wrong and will their inquiry get to the bottom of the problem. Looking at their terms of reference in relation to this itâs like they are basically looking at EVERYTHING to do with the party in relation to the situation. But I would say that the partyâs only as good as the people running it â and they might be in for a Â shock when the results of the review come back. They clearly need a good clean out to rejuvenate party in the publicâs eye â but they also need behind the scenes people who can come up with effective and strong policy to move them towards the middle ground and become a real opposition party again. They do actually risk becoming irrelevant and leaving the door open for either the Greens or NZ First to be the âoppositionâ.
- Then weâve got the two friends for National in parliament. They feel like faux deals as there doesnât appear to be much in it for either Peter Dunne or David Seymour â I guess it gives National more of a buffer in the house, but what on earth is an under -secretary? Interesting though that both Dunne and Seymour are happy to roll with their votes going to National for very little relevance in the wider scheme of things.
