Dork of The Week?

The Great Historian who never said a truer word than this but might not quite have meant it.

".....They’ve got to think about what the National-led Government would look like and what it would do." [ex Herald on Sunday]

You bectcha life they are, Michael. They've already thunk and that's why they are running away from Labour and crossing to National as fast as they can. The great unwashed are waking up.

National-lead government:
*slash public services
*prevent kids living next to a school from going to it
*purchasing hospital operations instead of joining a democratic queue, if you can afford to
*selling of important infrastructure such as rail, Air NZ, ACC, roads
*Providing an increase in foodbank usage.

I can hear the masses running.

BTW I do not disagree that National have done well in the polling, but it is more due to the bumblings of Labour than the policy of National. My feeling is that there will be a high minor party vote at this election due to that.

Yes PPJ, I agree that the results in the Pollings reflect more Labour's bumblings than any work National have done. They are just getting around to a bit of campaigning now (finally!).

But you need not be so polite here at Sir Humphreys. You could safely use much stronger words to describe Labours "bumblings".

Stronger words, whilst they may shrivel the petals off the delicate socialist policy flowers that bloom from the manure pit of Labour's think tanks, would at least be a bit more accurate.

Remember - float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

I like to think of it as the "lemming effect", Murray. Every once in a while they come and fling themselves at us. LOLL!

PPJ: selling of important infrastructre?

And you think Labour hasn't had its hand to play? Most recently, Cullen has been involved in approval-seeking for the sale of the South Island power grid. We have probably also had the Cook Strait Cable re-leased (original agreement under National) and also the Airways Corporation which controls one of the largest air traffic coverages in the world. Yes, sold off under the Labour government using dodgy deals that have since been banned by the US Inland Revenue Service and were associated with the collapse of Enron.

Opps. You better remove asset sales from your Nats vs Prats list.
