My previous post highlighted how limited the Labour Party is in their vision, being more interested in putting forward insignificant policies that pander to their minority factions, rather than a broader vision for New Zealand.
If Labour were running a proper conference the themes would be jobs, growth and education. They would be concentrating on telling the public what a disaster John Key has been as New Zealand has fallen further behind Australia, more of our kids are heading overseas and that to get growth we need a Labour government because National hasn’t worked. Then hammer home that National is only interested in standards, not results, and would rather give millions to their cronies in big business than fund schools properly.
The problem for Labour is when a party is taken over by minority factions the big picture never gets a look in. So instead of pinning John Key with some of his quotes as leader of National saying all the things he was going to do as PM, they are going to squabbling over irrelevant bullshit….like which David should lead the party.
