Labour's Elephant

Keith Ng has in interesting perspective on Labour's polling woes. Here's the money quote:-

"..........says Dr Jon Johansson, a leadership expert at Victoria University. "The real weakness of Clark is that there is no over-arching explanation as to what the purpose of her government is. We've seen this right through the three terms."

(In passing, I'm impressed with Dr Johansson's new title, no doubt self written. Helps pad out the CV.)

Of course, like all the other lefties, he can't bring himself to admit what the voters of New Zealand know.

"The over-arching explanation as to what the purpose of her government is - is to keep itself in power - no matter who else suffers."

None of this morning's Herald commentators seems aware that the public has woken up to the fact that it has been governed by a cabal of crooks. One little example was the extraordinary admission the other day in question time by someone or other that there had been insufficient time to address matters relating to crime and prisons because they were too busy working on the electoral finance bill. This of course was entirely in keeping with 'the over-arching purpose of her government.

These things are not lost on the voters.

Given that this will also be the over-riding purpose of any govt led by John Key, the phrase "What's your point?" springs to mind. People who want to vote for a party that actually stands for something need to look to the minor parties - Greens, ACT, Alliance, Destiny etc, they stand for declared values. Labour & National? They stand for being the govt.

True PM. But it is interesting to see commentators who might be seen as favourable to Liabour believe its days are over.

I can't imagine how anyone can imagine their day is not over. Michael Laws had it pretty well pinned down in the SST today, imho.

It's certainly not because their govt lacks purpose, though. Labour and National always have "being the govt" as their only purpose.

NB: re the anonymous fuckwit first-up on this thread: you guys have any objection if I add some javascript to our site that will automatically rewrite "anonymous said" as "Arse-licker said?"

PM, what a wonderful way to encourage the wayward commenter to adopt an identity.
