Just Left. Unfortunately I don't agree with him. Too many people follow populist politics, and election time is no different. It seems that the party in power always offers a sweetener before the election, and both major parties offer a spin on issues to favour themselves.
It seems that the highest priority of the party in government is to stay in government, and the highest priority of the parties in opposition is to get into government. The concept, that opposition parties should not be starkly-drawn alternatives but should act to give frank debate about issues, is not a concept currently showing in New Zealand politics.
