Matt McCarten Channels the Whale

One of the really effective campaigners on the left agrees with this blog and what Labour should be doing. A half decent operator would have the National Party’s collective goolies in the mangle and winding up the pressure. New Zealand’s economy is rooted, and the men in charge, Bill English and John Key have not been put under any pressure.

If Labour was doing an effective job, Key and his ministers would be under pressure to explain why we borrow billions to cover up the fact there is no economic plan. They would rather put the boot into the 350,000 Kiwis on benefits who are expected to compete for the 20,000 mostly minimal-waged jobs on offer.

Any fool can see it’s not the people on benefits who are to blame but this useless Government, which hasn’t got a single decent idea on creating employment.

It really beggars belief that Phil Goff and his staff have been so inept they haven’t managed to hang the lack of job creation on National. National are like a house of cards, kept up in the polls due to the popularity of the leader, not the competence of the administration.

If Labour want to win back power they need a new leader, a president who is full time and fills the coffers for the campaign, and someone like Matt or Conor Roberts running the campaign.

    So zero cred if Goof-E stays, zero cred if they drop him this close to an election, meanwhile the Johnny and Bill show are doing zero new spending and the ambo’s at the bottom of the cliff are beckoning?

    Have to say, through the lense of the rest of the world’s economies (excepting maybe Australia), NZ is doing pretty well. The job climate in NZ just doesn’t compare at all to that here in the UK, which is simply awful.
