All progressive voters need to know about Labour/Green power policy is that a free market acolyte like Liam Dann is terrified and the language by Key has suddenly become a shrill diatribe against the ‘far left’.
Hilarious isn’t it? Labour and the Greens have a hint of reshaping the failed neoliberal agenda Key is wedded to and all of a sudden it’s the dangers of the ‘far left’ taking over NZ...
Prime Minister John Key this morning stepped up his attacks on the potential policies of what he calls a “far-left” Labour-Green government, after two polls at the weekend confirmed the weakening trend in the his own popularity.
…combine these juvenile threats with Steven Joyce’s fear mongering ‘reds under the bed’ under grad language and we have all the hallmarks of the most divisive election ever brewing.
By going off the radar with such a monumental political earthquake like asset sales, National have managed to do what none on the left could do, force Labour away from the neoliberal consensus. The verbal insults National are hurling at Labour as their response to Labour walking away finally threatens to burn the veneer of a depoliticized Prime Minister from the publics popular perception of Key.
Everytime Key yells ‘far left’ all he does is remind the rest of NZ what a rich right wing crypto-fascist clown implementing failed neoliberal dogma sounds like.
