Colin Espiner on the Nats’ energy policy:
…National’s energy policy is conservative and lacking in new ideas… What it has delivered is a short-term, pragmatic policy lacking in vision. But unlike Labour, it is probably a policy in step with current public opinion.
Maybe these kinds of flaccid policy statements are inevitable when you: (a) painstakingly sterilise your publicly released policy for traces of your ideological DNA and (b) attempt to command majority support of the electorate by tightly tailoring policy to satisfy their desires.
But is it any way to run a country?
Ps. Check out the “Ambitions for Britain” imagery at the start of the clip. Look familiar?
