David Cunliffe plans no changes to Labour’s main policy planks:
. . . After unveiling a new shadow Cabinet line-up, Mr Cunliffe confirmed his deputy, David Parker’s key policy initiatives would remain in place and, in some places, be extended.
“They are all intact although I think it’s probably fair to say you may see more work from David Parker in the monetary policy area, quite possibly,” Mr Cunliffe told Businessdesk on Monday.
“Capital gains tax is intact. We may do some fine-tuning. The KiwiBuild policy is great. There may be some other changes in that portfolio as well.”
He confirmed the New Zealand Power single electricity buyer policy was also “intact.” . . .
There’s a different David leading the party but he’s spouting the same policies.
They were bad enough by themselves.
Add the ones promised during the campaign and the concessions labour would have to make to the Green Party if it’s a coalition party and you have an even greater lurch to the left.
