Labour got a fair amount of mileage during the election campaign out of harassing National about its lack of distinct policy. I guess that’s kind of forgivable of National in some ways, for reasons we won’t go in to again. But now National are in Government I still can’t help thinking their policy direction is kind of like this Badger Song.
Quite catchy, simple effective choreography with mesmerizing repetition, obscure aspirations and lurking anxieties, lots of moving but going nowhere – and otherwise totally vacuous.
Maybe this month we’ll be lucky enough get some useful idea of their plan, although at this stage I can’t help but wonder if it won’t be something like this.
