The policy difference between Labour and the Greens is almost 90% the same, but the policy difference between National and ACT are light years apart.
With ACT in double digits, they are a constant existential threat to National and because Luxon is so weak, he will agree to any of the crazy far right policy ACT want to implement and it is far right nonsense on meth.
- A billion into more prisons and detention camps
- Near flat tax fantasy
- Amputation of 5 Ministry’s plus closing the Human Rights Commission plus billions slashed from welfare plus a referendum to rewrite the Treaty with no negotiation to Māori.
- Destroy Gun register so gun fetishists can legally masturbate to their favourite guns again.
It’s libertarian gibberish with culture war dog trumpets thrown in for shits and giggles, but as we saw with Liz Truss when she attempted to implement the same types of free market bullshit in the UK, the Market itself revolted.
If ACT and National attempted to implement half of this policy platform it would lead to vast civil disobedience on top of the Markets doing the exact same thing to NZ that they did to the UK.
The reality is that the ACT agenda is so radical and the National Party so weak you understand why there is a serious attempt within National to get Shane Jones an Epsom Cup of Tea deal in Northland so as to put a hand break on ACT.
David Seymour and Winston hate each other, like despise each other so the idea that a Labour led minority Government with a supply and confidence arrangement with the Maori Party would be a ‘Coalition of Chaos’, totally ignores the ‘Alliance of Anarchy’ where Winston and David spend 3 years trying to kill each other off while Luxon sits crying in the middle like a stunned mullet.
