Has anyone other than Grant Robertson read all 63 solutions?
It would be funny if it weren’t so sad.
The trumpeting announcement from the Labour Conference was an eye rolling example of the banality of bureaucracy. The very intelligent and deep future of work conferences hosted by Labour have been boiled down to wonk speak wonk wonk. And the wonk was wonktastic.
Grant Robertson boomed that Labour has 63 solutions to the future of work! 63 folks, not one more, not one less. 63!
If Labour want to capture the imagination of the voters they are trying to actually win over, they must dump the wonk. Labour’s got 63 solutions but brevity ain’t one.
It’s like Labour just can’t get a break, they were eclipsed by the startling announcement that Gareth Morgan was forming his own political Party. It seems to me that his entry changes the political landscape in a very significant way.
Labour need to start thinking about where they should focus their strengths if they want to be the backbone of the next progressive government. Wonk wonk from Wellington Central isn’t enough.
63 solutions to the future of work has all the enthusiasm deficit of cold porridge.
