MARCUS - when Labour was in power the world economy was at its best the world had seen for decades. Labour with surpluses after surpluses kept on spending and not putting it away for a rainy day - National took over when the economy was stagnating and eventually became a worldwide recession hurting economies at a rate not seen since the depression. I could go on about Banks being found wanting ponzy schemes being found out at the expense of the hard working/earning investors etc etc. If Labour was still in power this country would be dead and be a part of Australia with no so called treaty (not a bad idea)

You all talk of a Labour/Green coalition with negative outcomes yet recently even the manufacturing sector is now calling for a lower dollar and if needed higher inflation to create job growth and to prevent many more from leaving NZ's shores.
The fact with this announcement is that the greens have offered a policy,what has the National/Act/United coalition delivered to date,absolutely nothing.
With NZ's highest migration rates to Aus ever occuring during this govt' term it would seem highly likely that those who have left know what kind of future we'll have under a right wing leadership and sadly many kiwis still living in NZ see it everyday.Highest unemployment rates in 13 years,debts at near record levels,assets being sold again at record levels it only reminds us that this current govt have no real strategy to combat their failures only more hairbrain schemes aimed at rewarding the party faithful.

WOW a Labour, Greens & Mana party government, now that will most definitely send us over taxed workers oversea's. They will absolutely destroy this country instead of looking after the ones who actually pay their wages. I for one would look at selling everything and going cause this coalition would be very scary to say the least - they are not on the same planet as any sane person. God help us if they ever got voted in.
