I wouldn’t want New Zealanders to wake up on Sunday and think “Ooops” - Anderton
Jim Anderton told a Forestry Engineering Conference today that it would be a shame if New Zealanders woke up on Sunday to find the jobs and employment progress of the last two and a half years wiped in favour of a National - NZ First – United government supported by ACT.
“I wouldn’t want New Zealanders to wake up on Sunday and think “Ooops”.
“All of the progress we are making – all of the jobs – all of the work with business – could go this weekend.
“New Zealanders might not realise how important their vote is for a solid block of Progressive Coalition MPs until it is too late.
“We can continue to bring new investment into the regions of New Zealand.
“These investments will bring jobs and renewed hope to some of our most difficult regions.
“There are 104,000 more jobs than there were 2 years ago, one new job every twelve and half minutes of the past two and a half years.
“There are 12 major industry strategies under way – from wood processing to biotechnology, information communication technology and industrial design - with many more lined up.
“It is a good story, and getting better by the day.
“But the future will depend on Saturday’s results.”
