ed:..on q&a arden was definitive..
..that labour will not be raising the unemployment-benefit..
..yes..the poor with children will get help from labour..and this is good..
..but to once again just turn their backs on the childless-poor..
..is just the failures of the last labour/clark govt. re-visited..
..so it is clear that left-leaning voters who care about matters such as caring for our worst-off..
..would be better advised to lodge their votes with either the internet/mana party..or the greens..
..as these are the only parties who address what labour just ignores..
..and the stronger the vote for those two parties..
..the more pressure they will be able to bring on labour..
..to force them to do the right thing..
..labour..standing alone..are just promising us more of the same neo-lib bullshit they have for the last 30 yrs..
..and like national..they just don’t fucken care..
..on this issue..labour and national are as rotten as each other..
