And so here is Metiria Turei today:
The Greens hope to use that anti-asset sales momentum to build a "political on-the-ground movement ready to take different kinds of action".Well, whether the Greens have the financial clout of the Nats is a moot point. But the Greens think if they don't, they can just use taxpayers money to make it even. If (and that's a big IF), they make it into government, I am sure they will change the rules to ensure parties are funded by the taxpayer.
"It's modern campaigning," Turei said after delivering her speech.
"It's what it looks like in the 21st century."
Russell Norman, who made a brief appearance on stage too, said the Greens did not have the financial clout of National but it was about putting "bodies on the ground".
I used to worry a lot about a possible Green government. But now I just think we get the government we deserve. If New Zealanders want these fruit loops in charge along with Winston then fair enough I guess.
