Labour could learn from Labor

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Over in Australia Julia Gillard, who would one day like to lead the ALP, has outlined a new Labor vision that includes tax cuts, moving away from “welfarism” and encouraging a civil society.

Launching a book on the Labor Party, Ms Gillard urged her party to put the national interest ahead of sectional interests to become relevant to all Australians.

Well, well, well, three holes in the ground, A Labor politican who sees some sense.

For “those who aspire to move beyond welfare to work, a cut in tax is not just as good a way of increasing a breadwinner’s take-home pay as a rise in wages, it is a better way”, she said.

Good words that Labour in New Zealand would do well to heed.
