Labour have released their Party list and there are no real surprises.

Labour will be lucky to hit mid 30s in terms of Party vote, but will only get there if they have more in the tank than just removing GST off fruit and vegetables.

If they have meaningful policy, they can hit the mid 30s, if they simply limp to the election with just GST off fruit and Vegetables, it’s all over rover.

People have waited 6 years for the transformative policy Jacinda promised them, Chippy has moved to ‘Bread and Butter’ politics but if all that means is just GST off fruit and vegetables, no one will be able to buy any bread or butter.

There will be a host of marginal electorate seats Labour won with the giant red wave of 2020 that will all be up for grabs as well.

Here is the Labour list with TDBs Underrated/Overrated rankings.

If Labour can not bring some major policy concept to the table, they will have the election to National and ACT, and that’s when the real anger at the political left should erupt.

Ruling out a sugar tax is another swing and a miss from a timid Prime Minster not prepared to do anything.

Chippy’s brittle caution is winning him no friends.
