    Campaign for Change?

    Booting out all the neo liberals and going back to Labour party fundamentals?

    Yep. That’d be a change alright , – for the better !!!

    Well done the Labour party for thinking of it !!!

      Brilliantly put WK. Had the same thought when I saw the headline 🙂

      However at present, until a real working class left wing leader with strong socialist policies and values emerges, I think you and I might be dreaming.

        Has the right poked you in your left eye to much?

        If you talk about the propesects of a unified economy like it is some Fantasian dream then go back to sleep.

        Similarly the rights money multiplier theory that one minted dollar can be leant out any number of times through finance ect. That is not a dream and I would agree that should be crushed to about 30% of the economy.

    NZ Labour is closer to May’s Conservatives than to Corbyn’s Labour.

    There’s more chance of me campaigning against Labour, than for them.

    It’s socialism or barbarism, and NZ Labour has chosen the latter. NZ Labour are more likely to blame immigrants for our housing crisis, than to blame the lack of state housing.

    Let us know when Labour return to their roots… they still don’t represent my values.

      People like you, making noises like this, are all that’s keeping the NatACTs in power. Why would left-leaning voters who aren’t fulltime hobby politics (like us) bother turning out to vote if all the parties that have any realistic change of unseating the NatACTs are just as bad? You would do more good if you said nothing at all. You would do even more good if you made specific criticisms about Labour policy, and what you’d have them change it to, rather than just sticking your fingers in your eyes and chanting “nya nya nya”.

    Jeremy Corbyn was the first Labour for decades that actually inspired me.
    Ed Milliband seemed a nice man, but he wasn’t inspirational.
    Jeremy inspired people because he campaigned brilliantly, he was calm and reasonable in his debates, he criticised without abusing and his low key demeanour gradually won him praise from his doubters and even (reluctantly) his opponents. Ordinary Britons began to doubt the newspaper spin that Corbyn was a socialist devil and started to see him as a real credible alternative, not a basket case that Tory diehard rags like the Guardian wanted people to believe.
    I was genuinely disappointed that he didn’t win, but the story is not over yet, I think.
