Thanks Gypsy for your research and actual published references. Very useful in discussion, to have some factual statements, dates, etc.
Thanks for your research and references.
Willy Jackson - "democracy is changing, the tyranny of the majority is over" etc. etc. It seems that the discussion is well underway already MS, you can see how such comments have attracted attention.
scares the crap out of people that believe in equal suffrage.
Labour has scored a massive own goal in not providing full and open information about co-governance from the outset.
best comment today Bazza
I don't know where you get your information from Nordy, but it seems to be a bit filtered if you think that Kiwi Build is the sole area of concern. For example, the last point has been a major area of debate and outrage on this blog.
Kiwi build Gun violence, specifically in Auckland Gang membership increases Vagueness about co -governance, creating doubt and distrust Light rail The massive transfer of wealth to the top 5% in the last 3-4 years. They are a few that spring to mind ...
We can all agree that JA is an excellent speech maker. Always has been, always will be. But in the face of 30 year record high inflation, co-governance vagueness and the poor performance of several labour Ministers in critical roles, is being a good speech...
"most transparent government ever"
Grant and Jacinda know that the hard left and separatist policies promoted by the Greens and the MP are unpalatable to the centre left and centre right; like it or not, this is where elections are won or lost.
Don't fret MS, Senior roles in Fonterra, Unilever and Air NZ should cover it for Willis and Luxon in terms of understanding a budget - but thank you for your concern.
Objectively, I would have thought that a 15% swing between the two major parties in this reputable poll within the space of about 3 months could be fairly described as dramatic. I would also expect that once Covid settles down and inflation/cost of living/...
"the majority", you say. When it was one person, one vote, that concept worked well. Under co- governance, well..........
watch the Act response on the Herald web site.
The science/engineering is not the issue Dennis, as you well know.
Robertson and Mahuta have just announced that they want Labour to lose the next election in a land slide, great work you guys.
The internal polling must be a bit dire
Really Ad? Ardern is the sole reason labour is in power, if she goes, it is all over. The current government less Ardern will struggle to get 25% of the vote in the next election.
Political suicide for Labour - NZers do not appreciate constitutional change by stealth
The election will be fought over inflation and three waters/ co- governance
um, do you have any understanding of context???
Maybe he can see the Health restructure going the same way as Kiwibuild and decided that enough is enough.
yes, political suicide
Three waters, co-governance etc will be the death knell for this government.
gee , that latest poll has really got you grasping at straws mutton.
Every PM in NZ has been the subject of verbal abuse. The current PM is no different, the article is patronising.
covid is already happening here big time, have you not noticed?
um, the Empire are the bad guys MS.
When long time Labour man Phil Goff categorically states that it is poorly thought through, poorly structured and liable to manipulation in the future, you know you have problems. Bryce Edwards has an interesting piece on 3 Waters today.
