    I dont think it helps the left to throw in things like “interest free student loans” when Nationals policy is actually better than Labour’s (interest free and a bonus)

    Apart from that it was pretty good

    The video is mildly amusing but it makes some rather significant errors. IE, with the Nuclear Free NZ text it only removes the free part of the line leaving Nuclear NZ this leaves Say goodbye to Nuclear NZ which is what we did nearly a quarter of a century ago. To be accurate it would have to remove the entire Nuclear Free NZ text.

    3SL, the only people who will get the Nationals student bonus will be the rich though. It really is only a policy to transfer taxpayer $$$ into the pockets of those who don’t need it.

    that may be so but there is no indication that interest free SLs are at risk under National, in fact quite the opposite
    if we include points that are obviously wrong it takes away the effect of points that are correct
    that was my point

    quite like the nickname 3SL 🙂
    better than the “shriveled one” I get at Kiwiblog

    Short Shrivelled, I think the point may be more that National’s position on a lot of issues has changed more than once in the last few years. It wasn’t that long ago that Key was decrying Labour’s Interest Free Loans scheme an “irresponsible cost to the country”. What do you trust more as a bell weather of how a National Government would operate, the positions they took before Key made them tow the Labour line or the often contradictory statements they’re now throwing about in the run-up to an election they can’t afford to lose?

    oh and even though it is a policy that favours ‘better off’ graduates, I do think that its main purpose is to encourage faster loan repayment

    It may encourage faster loan repayment but the government shouldn’t be passing laws that benefit one group of people over another.
