Perhaps the NZ public will realise that gvt debt has risen from 10 billion under Labour to 60 billion under National in the 6 years they have been mismanaging NZ so far?  That they have sold off the entities that brought cash into the gvt coffers.......
But then again, most voters are not noted for thinking past what goodies are promised pre election.

You just keep posting bullshit into this thread.

By the 2017 general election (probably a lot sooner), all the intelligent people at XNC2 will have moved to our other place (and it will shortly have a requirement to apply for membership so we can keep idiots and those lacking any actual sense of reality out), leaving the dumb clowns to this place where they can shout echoes to themselves to their heart's content.

Who says he isn’t working?

The opposition and other idiots like Jordan Williams have been attacking Todd Barclay because he isn’t in parliament.

They of course forget all the time off Nanaia Mahuta had, or Clayton Cosgrove and Nick Smith, plus plenty of others.

In any case Todd Barclay isn’t kicking up his heels he’s working…in his electorate…you know like Bill never did when he lived in Karori.

That is some pretty impressive work for his constituents. They are impressed too. Nearly four hundred likes in three hours.

Check the comments, basically they are saying that all politicians are bastards but our bastard is a good bastard.

The media are making more fuss over Todd Barclay than they are of a self-confessed benefit fraudster. That tells me more about the media party than it does about Todd Barclay.

...this election result is becoming more unpredictable....if labour and peters get enough seats to cut out the greens...it's really a guess as to who he would go with...although historically he would be more aligned with national...he has many enemies there now...he may like the more inexperienced labour leadership where he would likely get more power....😳
...time to strap ourselves in🙄.....it's getting scarey
I took the time to read some of peter's policy the other day....lots and lots more spending, lots and lots more bureaucracy....very little new income....it's a worry....but great if you're a socialist


More good news for Labour as Jacinda Ardern prepares for campaign launch

Better news for Green Party leader James Shaw and his MP in a new poll.

Labour leader  Jacinda Ardern kicks off her campaign with an official launch in Auckland on Sunday buoyed by a new poll that puts her party within striking distance of a softening National vote.

The survey obtained by Stuff and undertaken by pollsters UMR Research - which Labour, NZ First and a range of corporates use - put Labour at 37 per cent, up one percentage point since the last UMR poll a week ago.

That was the same support shown in this week's One News-Colmar Brunton poll.

But National was on only 40 per cent, down three from the previous UMR poll a week before. The One News poll also showed National down three percentage points but at 44 per cent.

There was better news for the Greens who were steady at 8 per cent in the UMR poll. That contrasted with the disastrous showing in the Colmar-Brunton survey released on Thursday that put them at 4.3 per cent - below the MMP threshold and in danger of crashing out of Parliament.

Your key to unlocking NZ politics: Sign up for our newsletter
NZ First, up one at 9 per cent, was in third place and still in the box seat to determine which of the two major parties will lead the government after September 23.

If it threw its lot in with National the two would likely have a bare majority of 61 seats in a 120 seat House, although the support and number of electorate seats won by ACT, the Maori Party and United Future could change that calculation.

Labour and NZ First together would have only 57 seats on the latest UMR numbers and would need the backing of the Greens to form a Government.

....mmmm.......more taxes.....more bureaucracy.....more handouts....more waste...more public servant troughers.....higher taxes......new taxes.....more tax and spend mentality...throwing money at will in true do-gooder fashion....with questionable results....🙄



Have voters LOST THEIR MINDS?


Theologians wanting to see if the Rapture was real should have made a study of Labour’s campaign launch on Sunday.

The Auckland Town Hall was the scene and the cause was the Jassiah – as Jacinda Ardern has been dubbed courtesy of her reincarnation effect on the Labour Party.

The supporters had flocked in, filling the Town Hall and the Q Theatre and another overflow area. Organisers estimated upward of 2200. They sang “everybody let’s do this” – a riff on the “everybody let’s party”.

When MC Michele A’Court warned some construction was underway behind the stage curtains, it raised hopes of a Miley Cyrus style Wrecking Ball entrance by Ardern.


It seemed apt given the effect she has had so far on what had been shaping up as a dull election, and on PM Bill English’s hopes of a fourth term – not to mention the collateral damage to the Green Party.

Ardern did not say anything new in the way of policy. She did not need to. She could have sung Mary had a Little Lamb and they would have been happy

We’re running out of ways to bastardise her name, but I’m starting to think Jysteria.  It seems that if a younger attractive person smiles and says the very same things that an older gruff guy said less than a month ago, suddenly it’s GREAT! 

Ardern is yet to set out Labour policy on issues such as income tax and capital gains tax. There will be other policy areas she will have to contend with.

To highlight National’s perceived failings on areas such as the economy and homelessness, Ardern had used the refrain of “so now what?”

The campaign launch was aimed at inspiring the faithful (and some fickle) Labour troops. It worked a treat.

But for the next five weeks, Ardern will face the slightly more sceptical voters who will be asking the same question of her: “now what?”

If she manages to pull this off, I will never have seen so many lambs willingly walk to the slaughterhouse, lie down and point at a line on the throats that reads “please cut here”.

The very same policies that have killed Shearer, Cunliffe and Little are now totally glossed over because the public is just so happy to see Jacinda.

So now what?

Let’s do this?

Spare me.

I was going to vote early (today).

But then I got polled by the Nats last night, so on the spur of the moment decided to pull an old trick I did two general elections in a row back during the 1990s when I was living in Gisborne.

So I told the pollster that I supported the Nats and would give them “two ticks”.

However, I also told the pollster, when asked, that I wouldn't be making myself available to help in any way.

So.....that now means that on election day, I will hold-off from voting. By early afternoon, the local Nats will know I haven't voted because of the returns from their scrutineers in every polling booth in the Wairarapa electorate, so I will receive the usual phone call reminding me to vote. However, I will still hold off voting, because I know from past experience that by late afternoon the local Nats will determine I still haven't voted, so will phone and offer a ride to a polling booth to vote, then a ride back home. I will gratefully accept their ride, but when I get to the polling booth, I will be voting for a candidate and political party other than the Nats. They will then drive me home again. I may or may-not tell the Nats supporter who gives me the ride how I voted as I am alighting from their car back at my place, depending upon what sort of mood I am in at the time.

How's that for a neat trick to shove one right up the clackers of the Nats, eh? And I've done it before in the past.

New poll: National rebounds as Jacinda effect slows
12 Sep, 2017 6:00pm 

Labour leader Jacinda Ardern appears to have hit a speed bump in the latest Newshub Reid Research poll as National's Bill English claws back ground to get up to 47 per cent.

The poll had National up four points from a week ago to 47.3 per cent while Labour was down slightly on 37.8 per cent.

It is a stark contrast from the 1News Colmar Brunton poll last Thursday night which had Labour steady on 43 per cent from the week before while National had slipped to four points behind on 39.

The poll was bad news for the Green Party which was down below the vital five per cent threshold on 4.9 per cent - just too low to return to Parliament if the election night results is the same.


NZ First had also slipped a bit to six per cent.

The last Newshub poll in early September had National still ahead but starting to slip on 43.3 per cent while Labour was up to 39.4 per cent. English's personal support was also rising at that point - he had moved up to 30.1 per cent as preferred PM but Ardern was almost even on 29.9 per cent.

Both NZ First and the Green Party had both dropped further to 6.6 per cent and 6.1 per cent as the squeeze from the contest between the two big parties took effect.

Early voting began on Monday, adding extra urgency to the campaigns of both National and Labour. Ardern was quick to get at least one vote in the bag - casting her own vote in Mt Albert today and encouraging others to do the same.

Both leaders have been saying they believe the election will be a close-run thing as the poll gap closed.

Tonight's poll follows a concerted attack by National over the lack of clarity in Labour's tax policy. That had led to Ardern ruling out any changes in income taxes and on Monday ruling out any inheritance tax - but she is otherwise sticking to her position not to decide on tax changes until after a Tax Working Group if in Government.
