National’s conference was supposed to be a tour de force, setting them up for the home stretch to the election. But where was the policy? Where were the new ideas? Where was the vision?
The only hint of a whiff of a suggestion of an idea was – wait for it – tax cuts! That will surely eliminate poverty, fix housing and the environment, and turn this country around! Completely vague and un-costed of course, the sort of thing that would be a political massacre if Labour said it.
Echoing in the policy vacuum, the media was dominated by the national #debarclay. In a masterclass of political incompetence Bill English changed his story on the tapes again, and again. He was interviewed by Corin Dann on Q&A (“I said what was in my mind at the time” – wtf?) and Patrick Gower on the Nation, not about conference achievements, but about his complicity and his ever-changing story. The Billshitting PM and the party machine, they’re in it deep. It all looks as shifty as hell, because it is.
This recently on top of Alfred Ngaro’s naked threats to political opponents and Nicky Wagner’s insults to the disabled, and institutionally on top of dirty politics.
Here is National standing exposed. Time to change the government.
