Bulletin 14/3/2017

Summary:

National throws down a bunch of statistics to highlight all the good things under their watch in government – but it seems it would be easy for the opposition to counter with other statistics that aren’t as favourable.

A student protest on rape culture spurs talk on consent education and abortion reform by Labour, Greens, Maori Party, and ACT.  Labour and Greens continue to push on the housing shortage – I can’t believe National still hasn’t come up with an answer.  Looks like a good part of the Greens’ base is rallying around the issue of water quality – not sure if it’ll motivate many other voters, but it’ll certainly get the environmentalists active.  ACT wants tax cuts, of course, and tobacco robberies has the potential to become a meme.
