I’ve never been to a conference that felt this upbeat.
Tonnes of policy ideas, no fights, lots of ambitious goals, polls skyrocketing, tonnes of cash to implement, opposition in disarray, a full card of delegates.
Life could be worse.
Really interesting debate extending Kiwisaver, especially how to target lower income people who haven’t signed up.
A leader who appeals to young people who will become regular voters.
A finance minister recategorising every budget bid according to poverty and wellbeing with full Tresury support.
Martin Philip’s of The Chills at the party tonight.
Dunedin’s brimming tonight.
