Labour is Dead
Republic of New Zealand Party Leader, Kerry Bevin, says Labour is dead.
Campaigning in the P.M's Mt Albert electorate, he claimed that Labour's naked populism, follies of a decade, accumulated sins, lack of vision and a total leadership failure to address critical issues with a planned strategy has finally put the government down.
Supporting the Party's Mt. Albert candidate, Dave Llewell, Kerry Bevin said that with such a hard working family man as Dave representing the Republicans in Mt Albert even Clark is vulnerable as Howard was in Oz.
Many voters in Mt. Albert see Clark in panic mode, bullying truckers and undermining the police. These things signal the death of Labour at the elections.
"It's like Labour has a death wish."
Kerry Bevin, Republican candidate in Auckland Central, was trying to get to the local government hearings at the time of the trucking gridlock.
"Isn't it farcical that Judith Tizard, former Minister for Auckland, has delivered further failure and delay re Local Government. It really is time for Helen, Judith, Annette and the other funny girls to go."
The Republicans fear is that Kiwis are going to jump from the Labour frying pan into the National fire again. A New Start with the Republic of New Zealand Party's 5 Ways Forward policies would be a good choice, he said.
"At least fundamental issues would then be fronted."
