Labour have still not shown the electorate any real policy and simply relying on Chippy beating Luxon in the debates is too much of a gamble.
The good news from the latest TV3 Poll is that Labour can win this if Chippy goes big, look at the preferred PM numbers and trust levels…
…Kiwis trust Chippy, and Chippy must lead.
Right now, all Labour are impotently promising is GST off fresh fruit and vegetables.
That just won’t be enough and seeing as it has already been leaked, art will be met with a shrug by voters.
Instead Labour should utilise this leak and leverage it politically and surprise the Electorate by taking GST off ALL food, this after the disappointment of the Wealth Tax will make voters feel like Labour have actually listened to they pain in the cost of living crisis.
Political cowardice is never rewarded and until Labour makes an actual stand they will continue to slide in the Polls.
Labour either stand for something or they hang for everything.
Labour either shows political courage and takes GST off all food or they hand this election over to the hard Right.
You’ve run out of road Chippy, go bold or go home.
What’s the point of Bread and Butter politics if no one can afford Bread or Butter?
