ACT Joins Labour

Poor Roger Douglas.

The silly old goat is about to find out what Filk Off already knows.

Nobody's listening. Especially when your party is polling at 1% and you are showing your true colours - those of a destructive and disruptive loner who has never worked within a team and never will.

People are turned off by this strident same old same old tired Actoid silver bullet stuff churned out now by the redoubtable John Ansell who doesn't seem to know how to pick losers.

John Key is quite right to relegate Douglas to the same back paddock as Peters.

Adolf is having quite a chuckle at the discomfort of all those fundamentalist Actoids who have been screaming for the PM to be resolute and decisive.

Well, you got your wish. He's just drop kicked Roger Douglas into the crowd, never to be seen again. The game will continue with a new ball.

The fact remains that National KEPT the Labour policies it railed against in opposition in full knowledge that they are bad for New Zealand's economic future.

ACT however would have been far more potent staying out of government and building support for the kind of reform National will not undertake.

Why vote ACT when Roger spouts good policy but supports a govt that does not?

What a mess.

I am not an Act supporter, but I will not be voting National next
time. All they are is Labour in
disquise, just about as far left as
Labour are. Key is a pathetic
centrist about as pathetic as
his party, the next few polls
will show a marked decrease in
support for National, people
are waking up to what they are,
a pack of woofters.

You may not lke all that this centre right govt has done, but you'd be barking mad to put Goff there!

Fair enough comment on ACT - with 1% you can hardly throw your weight around.
Perhaps answer me this.
What has National done to improve the economic prosperity of this country?
From my view we continue to slip backwards compared to the rest of the world. Same trend as when Labour where in office
An answer along the lines of - well look at the polls, it all must be good - is not acceptable :)

Well David, they've actually done many many things, not all of which are obvious. One stand out example was the achievement of an international credit rating upgrade when every commentator was expecting a downgrade. That alone has vastly improved our prosperity compared with what it might otherwise be.

So my question to you is, given the ever changing circumstances surrounding our economy, what exactly would YOU have done differently which would have (a) improved our prosperity and (b)not handed the next term back to the evil forces of the centre left and their hangers on from the Greens and NZFirst?

Unfortunately I seee a) and b) as two seperate things
I guess that why I would be hopeless as a politician
Things I would have done - not sure.
Things that John Key has not done or have been wasted opportunites
a)Jobs Summit
b)Brash taskforce
c)Addressed bloated public sector
d)Mining
e)What ever Sir Roger says :)

Personally I would have grasped the opportunity that the Global Financial Crisis presented, as it was a hopefully once in a lifetime opportunity to correct the flagrant middle class welfare schemes that had set up by a cynocal Labour government to ensnare more supporters. WFF should have been abolished, flagrant pressure group and bollocks artists could have had their fuinding slashed ( reality is they always cajole for things against individual freedoms and property rights anyways). The foreshore legislation should have been repealed and the status places back to where it was before the biggezst hater and wrecker interfered with the legal process, which would have once and for all clarified waterfront property rights. I would have sold the populace a fait a compli that unless we started to develop our mining industry using a decent sales campaign demonstrating how scrubby gorse infested rubbish land, which could have been surgimined dsplaying all the massive advances in technology which allows clean mining, and have a conservation percentage put aside to restore and rehabilitate the crappy land to native parks, with new managed walkways put in by the mining companies, thus making more of NZ accessable to those who actually get our there.
I would implement the regulatory responsibility act and retest every single piece of legislation currently on the statues books over the next 10 years to see whther they were helping or hindering our ultimate goal of eclipsing the differential in Australian and NZ earnings. The first of which would be repealing the RMA.
I would have fast tracked 5 new Hydro generation projects, and stater a new coal generation plant on an island 20 miles off the east coast of Auckland, and run cables back into Auckland/ Northland to secure the electricity supply for the largest city in the land.
I would have repealed the RMA to allow private enterprise to raise the capital required to get the projects built, with the aim that despite not selling off any of the current generators, the govt would have its domination of generation diluted to 50% of the market.
New tax breaks could been installed to allow downstream processing of minerals into usable end product to soak up the inevitable unemployment that would result from the halving of the public sector's job numbers.
All non critical positions would have been evaluated against a standard to see whether the job was a hinderance to rebuilding NZ, if it was then that was proof that that person needed to be employed elsewhere, like designing or building and then working in the new private facilities that had sprung up within 6 months of the RMAs repeal.
Beneficiaries would need to present to the dole office's new gymnasiums that had exercylcles or treadmills set up to minigenerators to allow them to burn their lardo-arses off thus improving the health status of the populace. (Auckland airport these days is disgusting to fly back into, on my most recent trip there were 4 people that I passed, in the entire terminal who were not overweight, truly abominable).
By minimising the outgoings real tax reform could have been implemented. A tax free threshhold of $50k, and then a flat tax of 20% thereafter.
But alas, that opportuinity is lost. We are now into the downhill slide until the next election. National's progression back to a party of freedom and property rights will be halted because now they will enter a treadwater phase.
No Labour socialist inanities will be corrected, because Key is effectively being directed by some femtards from the inner west of Auckland with thier bollocks airheadness, who manage to get their idiocy packaged into nice little sound bites, which a willing media only too eagerly laps up, and regurgitates, along with a doe of guilt if you don't hild similar views.
