I just watched the National Party’s opening address played on TV last night. Well. Actually I didn’t watch it all. I got bored.
I would say that. I’m a Labour MP. But I’ve also got an eye for what makes good communication. So if it had gripped me I would have watched it all even if I didn’t agree with it.
I couldn’t watch it live as I was participating in an election forum in Dunedin. I’ve done a few now. From what I hear, National’s plan is this:
We’re going to sell stuff and cut stuff. And then we’ll get the nation to a surplus. And then we’ll have a brighter future.
I dunno about you but while I know they’ll certainly sell stuff and cut stuff, I don’t believe they know how to get our economy moving and they are definitely dodging the big issues facing NZ. It certainly won’t be a brighter future for all Kiwis.
It’s clear there’s a real choice for NZ’s to make on 26 November.
Labour does know how to get our economy moving and we are tackling the big issues: Inequality. A fair tax system. Unemployed young people. Savings. Our plan is based on values. Values that come from a party that’s got a rich history of taking the decisions that provide a better life for all of us. Not just some of us. I’m proud of our party and what it stands for. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch our opening address.
We aren’t scared. And we are more interested in making stuff and saving stuff, than stuffing things up.
