Gooner was doing some thinking below about National's move to reclaim the centre by stealing Labour policies. This gives Act a bit more breathing space on the right and they are probably thankful for it.
Here is my problem. Have we as a people become so complacent, so wrapped up in a comfort zone, that we now lack the courage to question how New Zealand is governed and the type of policies we need to ensure our economic and social well being. What has happened to people standing up and saying what they really think.
Do NZers really believe that WFF is the answer to their prayers? Have we become a society of people hanging around not wishing to offend, not wanting to upset the apple cart, accepting the crumbs our leaders throw our way.
The world has changed but we haven't. The centre is now a big fat, happy place where we are dooming ourselves to a very mediocre future.
