No room for complacency

When poll after poll puts National comfortably ahead of Labour it could be tempting to relax. But John Key warned delegates at the party’s annual conference there is no room for complacency.

He told us that every single morning we have to get up and remember who put the party in government; every single day we have to work hard to earn and retain the support of New Zealanders.

It’s very good advice.

Nothing pricks the balloon of support like arrogance and complacency. Gravity can affect polls and those which go up can quickly come down again.

We need only look across the Tasman and see the trip from poll topper to dog tucker which Kevin Rudd took in a few short months.

    Please remind John that the people who put National into government acknowledge that they have done some good things but we are still waiting for him to:

    * Repeal the anti smacking legislation.
    * Scrap the ETS.
    * Start to deal to Working For Families and lower taxes further.

    Those three actions would be a good start.

    Hear, hear, pdm.

    Also remind John “Dog Tucker” Key that Two Ticks ACT is the way he is currently heading with his arrogant complacent ignoring of those who voted him in.

    Also to see National actively dealing to government spending, increased taxes and the benefit classes (read Working For Welfare) with a well sharpened scythe would be a pleasure.

    Enjoy your conference, HP.

    I am not sure I will let our pet dogs read your last para HP as even they would in all likelyhood refuse Krudd as a suitable meal, they have standards you know,
