Just like you, but different
I don’t vote Labour or left wing. Never have. Doesn’t mean that I can’t have an opinion on what might make me vote for them though, or ideas that might appeal to a broader range of people that may bring them back to power.
Alone. Not in some cockamamie coalition of “we’re all left wing therefore a vote for anyone one of us works” way, that ends in tears of disappointment and compromise.
Good socialism, don’t get distracted by dolphins, or oil drilling, they fall in to place when you have the minds of the people .
Don’t get me wrong they are important but they’ll fall into place when people have security, and a future to look forward to.
Idea two: KiwiSaver from birth. And now I’m winging it on the financials, of course, but it’s an idea.
I own my own house, I don’t have children that would benefit under the KidKiwiSaver idea. My thoughts then are that if you can get people thinking about people, and all people thinking about the growth of the economy then this must be good for the proposing government in the short and long-term. The injection of money into the economy has to be good too. I’ll agree that this will not solve any house pricing issues as that of course is a sliding bar, supply and demand, but Kiwi-Build addresses affordable housing, right? They’re just ideas, not very good ideas possibly, but ideas that I’d be happy to support and vote for.
