  1. Policy Parrot 1

    Doesn’t that sound eerily reminiscent?

    “Sort out privitization in your 2nd term”.

    Advice to the then leader of the National Party, Dr. Don Brash in 2004. We all know what a charade his centrist stance was when it was exposed just before the election.

    Mr. Key, “Deja-vu” is not simply the title of a recent blockbuster.

    The exact transcript of his Agenda interview shows he more slippery than a Whanganui River eel.

    “our current position is that ….”

    No mention of promise or pledge or policy, just a current position

    Good to see that everyone thinks he will win a second term. 🙂

    Andrew – if he sticks to his election promises he won’t survive the first!

    The National caucus has not stood by a leader for a parliamentary term since Jim Bolger won the 1993 election. Even ones whose policies they actually liked.

    “our current position is that .’

    “…however our position next week might be different. I believe my right side is the more flattering. Especially in this light”

    Andrew E you should look up the election results for national when they goe for a second term. Under MMP they wouldnt make it. Even Muldoon would have been a one term wonder, when he got less votes in total than labour for the second term

    asset sales are all about a transfer of wealth from the collective poor to the indivdual rich. there is no basis for this policy except naked greed.
