^^ very true. look at how Key has handled our country through such tough times and managed to keep everything going steady. When you compare to other countries around the world National have done well. Goff is just a D!(k and seems to lack professionalism and is constantly shown up by Key. Key has such a good head on him and knows his stuff.

1. we need MMP GONE. The tail s been wagging the dog for far too long.
2. i don't think either major party is capable of making any meaningful changes.
3. that said, i'm going with labour just on CGT. that might be desperation by labour but the loophole's got to be shut.
4. and i'd be hit with top tax rate in a couple of years time but what's 6% difference (less in reality) for someone who can make $150k a year? i'd give that money up for not having to look at john key's smug face on the news day in and day out. i hear he s getting a bit of payback when he's going to hollywood too. i'd rather not have someone who made his fortune in foreign exchange trading as the PM of this country.

Totally, I've already lost my apartment to the whole leaky homes things....Labours getting all up in arms about how little the NAT's are doing to fix it, yet it was Labour that cause the problem in the first place.
Labour wants more welfare, which has to be funded from somewhere, namely tax. So all those on welfare vote for them, as NAT's want to get people working again.
KiwiSaver is about saving for retirement, so labour is saying they'll pay for it, when NAT's say there isn't money to pay for it unless you raise tax's...so all those who want a free handout vote labour.

Its pretty easy to see who votes for what party and why when you get down to the economics of it.

And then there's the minor parties, who get all upset they dont get their voices heard to represent their voters....thing is, they got the votes of their supporters.
That's what democracy is, so dont get all upset that you dont get what you want...its not what the majority want.
MMP was the worst decision ever, which it took a couple of elections for people to realise which is why NAT's won by a majority all alone....and what happens, the minor parties like the maori and greenpeace panic because they're not in a position to literally blackmail a major party to get their way.

vent vent vent.....need another beer me thinks.

just remember kids, valuable information, You cant complain about how sh1t the country is if you dont vote, so all those people ticking the " im not going to vote as it makes no difference " option need to seriously reconsider

^ oh well - don't forget though, the politicians have a nasty habit of changing their minds once they get in power, so there is a good chance you'll make no difference either way.

As funny as it sounds, what I also like about him..he's a normal bloke.
Just after he was voted in, he did a morning news segment, and he started answering a question with " yea, nah....."

Frikin Legend!!!!  I swear if he didn't have a PR person telling him not too, he'd call ACT and Labour a bunch of uneducated tossers on camera.

I'll prolly vote Labour cos i'm a low income earner ($27,000 or so a year) and have no real skills or qualifications to get a better job. So GST/tax etc have a huge effect.

I dunno, maybe i'll just wait and see what fake promises all the major parties are planning, and go with the one i like best.

Disclaimer: For the parties in existence I did not mention, you were not worth retaliating to or ripping the p1ss out of, except Act, I like Brash. He has logical policies on racial equality. Brash is cool.

National.

I'm a student, but I don't think that the degree I'm doing will equate to nothing; I hope to see myself doing something along the lines of what I'm studying. Sure, not stepping straight out of Uni into a job that will become my career for the next 40 years, I will most likely do something else first.

Write a book maybe, I'm good with words.
