John Key unveils new election hoardings

National Party Leader John Key is helping hammer in the first of a new series of election hoardings in Hamilton today.

"At this election New Zealanders face an important choice. They will choose whether to support a strong, stable National-led Government that remains focused on the things that matter, or Opposition parties that advocate complicated new taxes and increased borrowing."

Mr Key says each of the seven hoardings features a part of National's plan to grow the economy, build exports, create jobs, reduce debt and improve public services.

"Kiwi families understand that New Zealand and the world have faced significant challenges in the past three years. The National-led Government has worked hard to take the rough edges off the recession for the vulnerable, and at the same time get our books back in order sooner.

"An earlier return to surplus gives future governments more choices, and National is focused on that goal."

The seven hoardings feature the following messages:

1. Balance The Books Sooner
2. More Exports, More Real Jobs
3. Rebuilding Christchurch
4. Tax And Welfare Incentives For Work
5. Building Roads, Rail And Fast Broadband
6. Less Debt And Lower Interest Rates
7. Staying Strong On Crime

This is the first seven in a series of hoardings about National’s plans.

Gordon Campbell: On The Rationing Of PPE Gear, Masks And Everything Else

From the outset, the perceived need to ration our scarce resources seems to have driven the response to Covid-19. Rationing still appears to be limiting the ability of nurses and other frontline workers to access and routinely wear the PPE gear they need to do their job safely. Initially at least, we were also rationing the public’s access to Covid-19 testing. We also continue to pick and choose among the scientific evidence to justify advising the public against the need for them to wear masks…. If it hasn’t done so already, this trend will end up eroding public confidence in the Ministry of Heath assurances that hey don’t worry people, we have enough PPE gear, testing kits and masks to go around. Counter factual : if we’re rationing it, we haven’t got enough... More>>


 
 

Gordon Campbell: On The Ethics (and Some Of The Economics) Of Lifting The Lockdown

As New Zealand passes the half-way mark towards moving out of Level Four lockdown, the trade-offs involved in life-after-lockdown are starting to come into view. All very well for National’s finance spokesperson Paul Goldsmith to claim that “The number one priority we have is to get out of the lockdown as soon as we can”…Yet as PM Jacinda Ardern pointed out a few days ago, any crude trade-off between public health and economic well-being would be a false choice...

Gordon Campbell: On National's Regulation Crusade

Lets step back in time now, to simpler days and to simple-minded solutions. So…. if National gets elected, landlords will once again be able to evict tenants at will, raise rents anytime they like, and ignore the need to install a healthy standard of heating in the homes they put out to rent. This promised ‘bonfire of regulations’ is being done in the name of cutting red tape... More>>
