David Cunliffe will be giving his state of the nation speech in Kelston on January 27 which is Auckland’s Anniversary Day. The details are here.
The intent obviously is to set the scene for this year and to use this as a launch pad for what should be a very long, tiring, dramatic and most of all important election campaign. I am not sure if the country can survive three more years of the current administration without irreparable damage being caused and Labour and the Greens have to succeed.
So there is a great deal depending on this speech. It has to both inspire activists and start the process of persuading voters that this election they have to turn left and they have to vote.
So what should David talk about in his speech. What are the matters that will inspire and persuade?
This will hopefully be a free flowing discussion. But please be civil to each other and trolling will not be tolerated …
