John Key's Campaign Blog: 05 November

Campaign Blog: 05 November

Yesterday I spent time campaigning in Tauranga and Rotorua, and released our action plan for the first 100 days of government.
While my opponents have been busy desperately trying to dig dirt, I've continued to be focused on the issues that matter to New Zealanders.
In Tauranga I announced that a National-led government will build the Tauranga Central Corridor roading project for a cost $100 million.
Moving on to Rotorua, I released National's plans for its first 100 days in office should we win the election.
Our action plan covers four main areas - the economy, law & order, education and health.  National is ready to deliver a fresh approach.
Our policies are fully costed and funded.
One more thing: if Labour spent less time digging dirt and more time on the issues that matter, then we would not be facing a decade of deficits.
There are big challenges ahead for New Zealand.
They don't involve secret tapes or sending party presidents to Australia to ring back thousands of pages of documents to scour for dirt on your political opponents.
Those challenges are in the core areas kiwis care about - the ones I've just listed.
Today I am in Auckland, and tonight I will attend the second TVNZ debate.

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

ACT: Call To Abolish Human Rights Commission

“The Human Rights Commission’s appointment of a second Chief Executive is just the latest example of a taxpayer-funded bureaucracy serving itself at the expense of delivery for New Zealanders,” says ACT MP Todd Stephenson. More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More
