I don’t have much time for a lengthy post, but I just want to express and ree-confirm my committment to the values of the left.
The last 24 hours have renewed my motivation to contribute my energies for a change of government, and a better NZ – one that serves all Kiwis, especially those most marginalised, and those struggling to make liveable lives and communities on increasingly meagre crumbs.

We can see the ruthless, divisive, dirty tricks and bag of smears that the supporters of the status quo of inequality, and oligarchical power, are going to throw at those who support left wing values.
We can be and do much better than that. There are too many people that want and need a better politics, and a better NZ.
