What the hell’s going on? This press release from Bill English today under the heading “Emissions Regime Proposal Looks Sound”:
It goes on to say; “National Party Deputy Leader Bill English says the climate change framework announced by the Government today is in line with National’s proposals in this area”.
Please, please, does anyone imagine that the Labour government is doing so well that the National opposition no longer finds anything to oppose? Could it be that the National Party now admire what Labour is doing so much that all they need do is agree and wait to replace the government next year?
Don’t be fooled. Labour’s policy is sound alright, but National do not agree, as can be seen by the posts on National MP’s statements below. There is never any doubt that they operate a secret agenda, knowing full well that Labour is right to strongly address the emissions issue. Their ‘pretend’ policies on anything worthwhile hides behind an agenda to cut services, ignore threats to the planet and make tax cuts available to those who should be paying more for the damage we’re doing to the environment.
