Over the decades Labour has had the guts to take some hard decisions with benefits off in the future.
ACC, ETS, WFF, Cullen Fund, anti-smacking, gay rights, social welfare, public health.
Even not so hard decisions like the Rugby World Cup show Labour’s focus isn’t just on today but results in the future.
Something National has never managed. They’re always about the short-term. Doing it cheap and nasty.
Taking Aussie to the WTO over the fireblight ban is an example of Labour’s forethought. They knew the results were years away. Had the guts to stand up against our best mates when they had it wrong.
Looks like we won the case. Aussie’s going to have to let our apples in. Worth a fortune to our exporters
Labour’s brave move will be bearing fruit for decades to come.
