Looks like the meaningful measures are beginning to bear fruit.
There was an opinion in your response.
Well, we are actually. Covid19 pushed the timeframes way out. To put it simply, it takes quite a bit of time to get policies through the house and implemented. So, as I have already said, there is not enough time to complete those projects before the next ...
Inclined to agree Anne.
That's just your opinion James.
I really don't think you have been paying attention. btw "Without Covid, Labour would have made more progress" https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/opinion/300788564/without-covid-labour-would-have-made-more-progress
There is not enough time to complete those projects before the next election and imo you have basically proved Anne's point.
@MICKYSAVAGE. Just a point, its Income Insurance scheme, not social.
"her clear reluctance to be associated with any action that might be unpopular or even controversial" The policies if the Ardern govt that PM Hipkins removed, put on hold etc clearly shows your statement is not true.
That's what I was thinking too.
maybe in 2026
Aren't voters inclined to favour incumbents during times of crisis?
"I truly hope Auckland doesn't get the CHCH treatment" National/Brownlee are not in power.
Well the truth is certainly not coming from you Maurice. Three waters reforms will make it harder to a future National govt to flog it off. How can communities be sure these assets will not be privatised? "Continued public ownership of these water services...
It is not 5 waters. "critics (including former deputy prime minister Winston Peters, and the National Party) that the government's reforms aren't Three Waters, but "Five Waters." But the prime minister insisted that was not the case. "I've read the ...
Three waters legislation is too far along to be pulled back. Water Services Entities Bill has already passed and the remaining pieces of legislation are at the committee stage.
Carmel didn't get rid of the Children's commissioner.
National have history, they have a track record and imo not a particularly good one either. Chris? Labour haven't elected the new leader and PM yet and that sounds more like wishful thinking on your part.
No way. Not democratic, the people will decide on October 14th.
Nope, not more likely. Rumours of Jacinda resigning have been swirling around for years, even prior to the 2020 election.
Your mother could have said to you, "Anker, you know what he's (National) is like, he has form, so don't settle and don't forget how many times he (National) has let you down and as it turned out, after arrogantly and contemptuously telling everyone else ...
Even the PM has acknowledged that comms have been bad, but "a bit arrogant and thought they couldn't lose" nah I'm not seeing that at all.
You cant be 100% sure of that either, more like wishful thinking on your part. A year is a long time in politics.
That still does not prove that "Everyone else who voted Labour in 2020 has changed allegiance"
Links are included in the posts. Not my problem that you choose not to accept them. That's entirely up to you. It was never about convincing anyone. The thread was finished a while back, you just carried it on because it was all about what you thought.
