Why should Labour be announcing policy? The looney Nats set that precedence back at the 2008 election. National went into the election year without announcing any policy. They finally began to announce any policy about a month out from the 08 election. Any criticism from National towards Labour for their own practice is, hypocritical to say the least

Trouble with your comments Mike is you reinterpret everything your opponents say and then add things out of thin air to cement your delusions. If you go back and read my original opinion I stated a couple of times that Labour has it all ahead of them and the speech was devoid of any policy.Again they have an opportunity to take advantage of,but as of yet, they've done 'nada'. What you're going on about is cheap shots involving opposite ends of the anatomy, again where do you get this stuff dude? Like I said elsewhere on the site...go back on the meds Mike....(it'll help in the long run man).

Then where is Joe Key going to get 14K apprentices and fill the gaping wide tradesmen hole they have in CHCH, Challenger? Now whose being negative about the future of NZ.We wouldn't be able to start building houses for the middle class and the blue collar workers? Is that your take on reality? Seems like when it suits the right they suddenly lose faith in the resourcefulness of their fellow kiwis. Get the projects going and get people working on putting up housing for new home owners....not making the market 'affordable' for immigrants and forget about the affordability of houses for locals?? Houses not tenement buildings for the 2nd class citizens...man! The great NZ dream is meant for all NZers not a select few and a handful of wealthy immigrants....oops better watch my racial overtones....what a Joe Key the guy is....One word of warning to the left.If Shearer can't make any head way in the wake of this blundering govt,he doesn't deserve the job. I hope for the country, he has the wherewithal to get the public on his side in the next 18 months.
