Labour are eying up that Green vote and asking itself how much can they take this election to ensure a majority Labour Government.
The speed with which Labour Cabinet Ministers threw James under an electric bus over his Jedi Academy and today’s Tax rate rise on the richest are both examples of how Labour are playing hardball with the Greens.
Here’s Grant throwing an anvil to the Greens as they thrash around in the water…
The Labour Party has ruled out implementing the Green Party’s wealth tax in any Government it is a part of.
Labour released its tax policy on Wednesday, which would introduce a new top income tax rate of 39 per cent on income over $180,000, only hitting the top 2 per cent of earners.
Finance Minister Grant Robertson said no new taxes or other changes to income tax would be introduced in the term.
…Labour are gutting the Greens and hanging them out to dry.
Yes, I know that the Green Tax policy is infinitely better and that Labour are just tinkering but I only know that because I’m a Green voter and a politics nerd and I read their dense 52 page policy manifesto which wasn’t broken down to an easily dissected media bullet point one pager for the voters because apparently every policy is equal and worthy of praise in the trigger free emotional support peacock environment of the Green Party Inner sanctum!
I mean FFS guys, you’ve zigged every time you should have zagged!
The latest internal UMR Poll has the Greens slumping to 3.2%.
This is why Auckland Central increasingly is the battlefield to ensure Green representation in the next Parliament.
Look, we can all do the autopsy of how the Greens own woke online mummy blogger ActionStation! identity politics activists are alienating arseholes who have managed to chase away voters with their virtue signalling pure temple mantras so much so that the Party has slipped beneath 5% AFTER we get Chloe elected as the MP for Auckland Central, BUT WE DON’T HAVE THE LUXERY OF TIME FOR THAT DEBATE RIGHT NOW- so let’s just accept 5% ain’t happening and throw all our weight into convincing National and Labour voters to candidate vote Chloe Swarbrick.
Watching the Green Wellington Twitteratti scrambling online as they realise how alienating they’ve all been for 3 years would be funny if there wasn’t so much at stake.
Apparently micro aggression policing all white people as racist, all men as rapists and anyone supporting free speech as a uniform wearing Nazi isn’t particularly politically appetising.
Who woulda thunk?
I’ve only been pointing this out for like 3 years.
