Sticking it to Labour, Kiwi Style
This is an advert from the New Zealand National Party - their version of the Conservative Party. Simple and effective. And right.
That would be the New Zealand National Party that recently lost a record three elections in a row?
Thank you mainstream New Zealand
The Billboards are nice but the ones we used in the last election are better.
Anonymous, were's the record in that? The first Labour government was in for 15 years, beating National three times and it's predecessors once. Sidney Holland, Rob Muldoon, Jim Bolger and Keith Holyoake also won three elections (four in Holyoake's case)in a row.
Don Brash had a lousy job turning National around last time and he came within spitting distance of winning Helengrad, Unzud, Australia's seventh state, &c. He will next time.
Our tax cuts in Australia thanks to our Treasurer, Peter Costello, are great! But they're something the Tories would be better off moving on AFTER they win power, not before, so as to avoid the whole nasty "tax cuts = hurting services" thing all over again.
Wouldn't know about New Zealand, but the Conservatives have lost three elections in a row here, and just look at the cost to this country. No wonder anyone who can is emigrating....to Australia. (Which, Anonymous, is the whole point)
new zealands economy is in trouble.three successive labour govts...any coincidence?
stan, if you are a Tory you are welcome to leave. Funnily enough I know lots of very successful people who show no sign of wanting to go.
