bottle-fade50Just a reminder the next Auckland Drinking Liberally features Labour Party leader Phil Goff discussing his political values and the challenges facing the Sixth Labour Government. Should be interesting given his announcement on monetary policy last week.

When: 7pm TONIGHT 25 November
Where: THE LONDON BAR, upstairs cnr Queen and Wellesley Streets, Auckland CBD
Who: You and like-minded lefties. All welcome.
What: Phil Goff will discuss his first year in opposition and cover Labour’s response to the current issues facing New Zealand.

More importantly he’ll discuss what drives him as a politician and what values underpin his political beliefs (you can get a flavour of that here: http://www.labour.org.nz/mps/hon-phil-goff)

Phil will also talk about what challenges the Sixth Labour Government will tackle and what New Zealand might look like after two terms of a country led by him.

A time for questions and answers will follow.

Please pass this invitation to anyone you think will be interested in attending.

    Goff is a goof – settle in until 2014 or move to Aussie now.

    How can we follow Labour when their leader “thinks” what the labour core values are. Should as a leader he KNOW what the values of the party are, and use less passive language in his speeches. He is showing substance that is less than what J Key possesses. He needs to display some passion, which is lacking within most of the heirarchy of the party.
    He should read The Art of War. Pick you battles do not fight every battle that you come across. Soon ardent Lab supports will be like those of the mid 80’s even they will not be able to identify with the party, but Lab could take over the 3% on NZ1 support base. Wow
