  1. Enough is Enough 1

    Interesting.

    I would be most keen to hear David Parker on Unfinished business. That really is the key. Cullen can rub his own back in relation to some (certainly not all – Foreshore and Seabed anyone) of Labour’s achievements.

    However the past is the past and I want to know what Labour feels they didn’t achieve in that 9 years and how they will complete the job in the future.

    They not only have to peel back what Key has been up to in the past 8 years. The unfinished business must include is destroying what Douglas did 30 years ago.

    Would be great to go to.
    Although Winston is speaking in the west of Auckland at the same time.
    Decisions!

    • Garibaldi 2.1

      Wow, I’m underwhelmed. Will they gloat about backstabbing the Greens or ,perhaps, how they looked after the poor ( the Benes) ,or how they dismantled Rogernomics?
