Campaign Blog: 30 October
Yesterday began in Auckland doing the usual run of breakfast tv shows before I flew out to Queenstown and then on to Invercargill.
In Queenstown I announced our tourism policy before an audience at a Tourism Industry Association event, including my intention to take the Tourism Portfolio should National form the next government.
Queenstown was an appropriate place to talk about the importance of tourism, the contribution of the industry to the New Zealand economy, and its significance in terms of celebrating this country's scenery, wildlife and people.
After a brief walkabout and coffee with deputy leader Bill English, I travelled on to Invercargill and a public meeting last night.
The media were awaiting me on arrival to discuss Labour's latest attack on me, the so-called 'neutron bomb' over the H-fee.
Instead of governing and focusing on the issues New Zealanders are concerned about - like the economy and law & order - Labour has been trying to dig up dirt again on this 20-year-old issue.
Labour has even got their president Mike Williams on a flight to Australia to go through old court files - in the middle of an election campaign.
But the authorities have all had access to the same information, and agree I had nothing to do with the H-fee.
Labour doesn't care about
that. They are launching a last-minute attack because they
have nothing to say about the future.
Well, I have.
Today I will be in Wellington and the Kapiti Coast
talking about the issues that matter, like the economy,
health, law & order and education.
