WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN BUT PROBABLY WON'T THANX TO MMP

#1 Retirement savings made compulsory with matching contributions by the employer (or Government in the case of those receiving income support) leading to the gradual phase out of NZ Superannuation.

#2 A four year Parliament.

#3 Term limits for elected members (central and local government).

#4 Medical Insurance payments made tax deductible

#5 Private School fees made tax deductible coupled with a phase out of State Aid to that sector.

#6 Time limits for the dole and DPB payments.

#7 My golf handicap in single figures.

And yours?

Is seven your lucky number?

I don't rate your chances with the others.

As an employer, funnily enough I don't mind #1.
Providing there was goodwill on wage bargaining both ways, it could work, and be a great tool for reward and loyalty.

Cheers
Lofty

There's no real vision there - just a tickled version what we have now. Dream, really dream.

It reminds me of Marcus Lush the other day tallking about the US Debt ceiling and then getting onto "real news" about J Lo.

Wake me when its over.

1. Why do you want to dictate to me what I do with my money? Absolutely cut down on the NZ Super (over time) but don't then steal my freedom.

2. Without any kind of additional accountability, that is simply further eroding democracy. It's bad enough right now with control being but a brief moment every three years.

3. So if people want to keep voting for someone you think they are wrong because?

4. Fine.
5. Also Fine.
6. AMEN BROTHER!
7. hehehe

What a lamo set of policies. Your term limits idea serves no purpose. There are essentially no benefits at all to 4 and 5 for people other than the wealthy, who don't need it, and to pay for it you can do 6 which belts the children of the poor. You should join Act. They need the members.

Vet, here you see, spread out before you in this comments thread, the sum of all New Zealand intelligence.

No wonder the Bract party is garnering no more than 2.0% of the party vote.
