Grey Power On Policy Implementation


Grey Power Must Help Make Sure The Policies The Electorate Voted For Are Implemented.


We have elected what promises to be a government with heart , bent on restoring the concept of “Gods Own” to New Zealand.

Nothing is more fragile than a policy promise made on the hustings.

More than ever before the electorate needs to be VOCAL VIGILANT AND VISIBLE.

The points on Labours credit card must become the basic check sheet on the governments performance. We look to The Alliance to provide a balanced input to policy implementation.

 Older New Zealanders have been told;

 A married couples superannuation will be restored to 65% of the average wage.

 Housing New Zealand and Council rentals will come down to 25% of House Hold Income.

 Hospital waiting lists will come down, and Asset Testing of New Zealanders will be abolished.

 Our Grand children will have no interest on their university loans.

 In addition to which the voters have MADE CLEAR to all parties that Prompt Action is required on the two referenda.

Grey Power New Zealand Inc.

Grey Power remains geared for action to protect the interests of older New Zealanders.

For Fifteen years political parties have ignored their manifestos, this must not happen again.

The first real test for the new centre left regime comes on the 1st of April 2000.

On this day Grey Power expects this government to restore the level of superannuation for a married couple to 65% of the net average wage.

The link to the after tax wage must be restored at the same time.

Legislation to guarantee universal super for all generations, distanced from politicians, should be well on track during the first hundred days.

The way forward to social equity and enterprise is set Grey Power intends to remain Vocal Visible and Vigilant to make sure we get back to fair goes for all.


GREY POWER WILL HELP MAKE SURE THESE POLICES AND DIRECTIONS ARE MADE LAW.

Don Robertson

President.
Monday, November 29, 1999.
