And the other thing that bugs me, the new guy seems to look a lot like Christopher Luxon, whom everybody thought was going to be the next leader of the National Party. But I think thatis because they are both bald. Still, it seems hard to differentiate them in any other way.

He has to get into parliament to be that. He is not there and could loose come September. Remember he is a conservative socialist. Not what NZ needs. No No No.!!!!!😀

I dont see too many JA supporters coming back to a party led by a conservative catholic trump fan who's social views are formed by catholic faith.

I dont think he will do any better than Simon and probably worse.

Labour does need a capable opposition to be keep them in check but I dont think Muller is the man for the job.

It will be interesting to see how he tracks but a sad indictment on kiwi's if he does get any traction.

 

I'm intrigued as to what has led you to form the last three views, particularly the last?  Do you know something about Muller that the rest of don't?

Please explain how national has kept labour in check as u put it. Not one piece of legislation has been blocked by national to date.

Policies will dictate 2020 more so than any other election.

Fist impression as a TV communicator: in the same class as Bill English, Andrew Little, Richardson, Nick Smith, Don Brash. A non smiler.

How about the capital gains tax?

They've gone and got a new stale male to replace the old stale male.

This to me is the main problem. He ‘looks’ too old national party. It seems a lot on NZ voters vote based on appearance, personality and gender, rather than policies and what’s best for the country. There’s a huge chunk of voters this guy will never win, regardless of what ever policies or fresh ideas are announced before the election. 

2nd issue is, as BP says, who is he?

Meanwhile, Labour are riding high based somewhat on our isolated location and ease of shutting our boarders.

The first paragraph of my post describes where my views come from. "a party led by a conservative catholic trump fan who's social views are formed by catholic faith."

I never said National has kept Labour in check but it is very important that the party in power doesn't have it too easy otherwise arrogance creeps in. Human nature. Healthy democracy needs competition.

Just look at how Collins, Bennett and the likes were behaving after 3 terms in power compared to now. Very defferent behaviour, on the surface anyway.

What about the capital gains tax? Winston and the greens were against it. National did not have the numbers remember and still not.

The tax review and economists, plus public opinion, & RS

Anti abortion reform r u suggesting.

A radical change in party policies both by national and the greens will be needed for the polls to alter is my guess. It is susgested one of nationals longest serving mp will be pushed aside to the back benches. Simon b could resign or not stand again. Where does that leave the nats with the so called experience. We all know the nats attitude towards the unemployed and retirees.
