Talented Kiwis dominate Labour list

21 March 2005

Despite Wellington fog causing delays and a change of city for the Labour Party list conference, the selection itself, whilst hard fought, was conducted with good humour and respect, according to Labour Party President Mike Williams.

The 37 member team had been set to determine the all important party list on Saturday 19 March but heavy fog in the capital closed the airport making the meeting impossible.

On Sunday the group reconvened in Auckland and after a late start due to Wellington weather, the selection process lasted most of the day.

In a well signaled move, Waitangi Fisheries Tribunal Chairman Shane Jones was parachuted into the ranks of sitting MPs at number 27. Employment Relations Manager Maryan Street was also ranked amidst the Caucus members at position 36 on the list.

“We have a team of extremely skilled New Zealanders coming on board to add to the wealth of talent currently in Cabinet and Caucus,” says Mr Williams.

“I’m proud that Labour reflects the changing face of New Zealand with Chinese New Zealander Steven Ching placed 42 on the list, a place that should assure the business leader a seat in House.

“The make-up of the Labour team means Labour will continue as a capable government committed to New Zealand taking its place with pride among first world nations.”

Mike Williams says the Party list reflects Labour’s standing as a broad-based social democratic party.

Gordon Campbell: On Populism And Labour 2017

For many people on the centre-left, populism is a dirty word, and a shorthand for the politics of bigotry. In this country, it has tended to be equated with the angry legions of New Zealand First. Who knew they were not just a reactionary spasm, but the wave of the future?

Certainly, at the end of this week, the next US President will have won office (at least in part) thanks to his proven ability at (a) scapegoating refugees and migrants (b) wooing neo-Nazis and racial supremacists (c) attacking journalists and judges (d) threatening to jail his opponents (e) urging nuclear proliferation and (e) by promising to restrict women’s rights to control their own fertility.

On the face of that campaign record, there wouldn’t seem to be much in common between Donald Trump and say, Spain’s centre-left populist party, Podemos. Yet arguably, the similarities could be instructive for the Labour/Green partnership here. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Why Tax Cuts In 2017 Would Be A (Proven) Bad Idea

Ever since the world fell prey to the mullahs of the free market in the 1980s, no amount of real world evidence has managed dispel one key tenet of their economic faith. Namely, the idea that if you cut income taxes and taxes on small business, a wave of individual enterprise and entrepreneurial energy will thus be unleashed, profits will rise and – hey bingo! – the tax cuts will soon be paying for themselves ...
