Labour's Policies Tired and Old- ACT

'Labour's policies are simply tired, old and discredited said ACT leader Hon
Richard Prebble today after the launch of the Labour Party 99 election
campaign.

'Helen Clark has again spouted endless left wing ideology, making spending
promises without saying where the money is coming from.

'All intelligent voters will know that Labour's election campaign and policies
this year, are without credibility.

'Labour has made spending promises which equate to somewhere between $1.1
billion and $3 billion all of which will be paid for by a $350 million dollar
tax increase, the figures simply don't add up to the policy.

'Personally I am deeply disappointed after nine years in opposition, Labour
hasn't got a single new exciting idea,' said ACT leader Hon Richard Prebble.
