Why National supporters should act

If you’re online a lot you will have noticed that the Act Party have been doing webverts calling on National supporters to Vote ACT. Something about bigger tax cuts – can’t remember the details.

I think that any National supporter looking to switch their vote to a third party should find a party that are going to balance National, and not tip them over the edge. However, I do want to bring attention back to the fact that you just can’t trust the Nats. The TV3 website has done some work on which party’s have been flip-flopping on various issues, and guess who comes out looking spineless? Oh, but not on anything too important right?

Climate Change, The Iraq War, Te Tiriti.

Oops.

National supporters ought to remember that their cherished values come with an awful lot of new right baggage these days, and the people backing, nay running the party, have barely changed since 2005.

Of course, the Greens might be getting ready for a Fosbury of their own over the ETS! What a week in politics.
