Why Labour isn’t connecting

Labour is a glass is half empty type of party.

They can never, to partial quote Monty Python, never “look on the bright side of life”.

The aren’t aspirational, mainly because most of then look at life through the rear view mirror, always looking wistfully at the past and where we have been but never at the future and where we are going.

Take a look at this graphic from Labour that their adherents and forelock tuggers are chucking around social media.


As the Facebook users notes Labour is focussing on the glass is half empty…or in this example less than half empty.

More than half of all Kiwis did actually get a pay rise. But the interesting thing about the statement is they said ALL Kiwis.

Well children won’t get a payrise, neither will anyone not employed or on a benefit since there is no pay, only benefits. That means pensioners and everyone on the various welfare benefits…and so when you cut all of them out of the equation it would probably be close to 75% of ALL Kiwis got a pay rise last year…the rest are either children or bludgers.

This is just one reason why Labour is out of touch with the general population.
