Bulletin 21/3/2017

Summary:

Today, it’s National’s turn to be devoid of policy.  Yesterday, Labour was quiet, and today we see some big announcements and a clearer plan of attack – Labour’s Maori MPs are staying off the list to demonstrate their confidence in the Maori seats, and they’re attacking National on housing, superannuation, and general inaction on pressing issues.

The OECD releases a rather damning report on New Zealand’s environmental record, which gets plenty of talk from the Greens and environmental groups, but so far ignored by the others.
