Key and English on Q+A

November 11th, 2013 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

A Q+A interview with John Key and Bill English:

CORIN Do you ever have any big disagreements though on direction in terms of whether you’re going far enough to the right or whether you should be pushing harder on something?

JOHN I’d say no. One of the big advantages is that we’re both central-right, so I think we’re smart enough to work out that if we want an enduring policy, then we need to make change that we can take the public with us. And over the course of the five years, we’ve demonstrated that. So if you look at the Business Growth Agenda, you know, that’s our economic framework. That is 366 individual changes that we’re making. None of them we would, in isolation, argue is going to turn the dial, but in totality, they are turning the dial significantly in favour of NZ being a higher-growth, competitive economy.

CORIN Do both of you want to stay on right through next term if you win?

JOHN Yep.

I think there is no issue that they want a third term. I’m not sure if they get a third term, that the PM would seek a fourth term.

CORIN You two don’t have a Brown-Blair agreement when it comes to potential succession?

JOHN No. And the truth is that we’ve got a broad caucus, and there’s lots of people you could point to that actually could come through, depending on the timing. I think there’s a range of people, both on the front bench and people who are emerging.

CORIN Could I pick you up on that? So we’ve got Steven Joyce and Judith Collins. They’re both frontrunners. Have you got any preferences?

JOHN Uh, well, a) it probably almost certainly wouldn’t be our choice. If you’re talking about the leader, it wouldn’t be my choice, because I wouldn’t be part of the caucus. The caucus would be making that decision, and if they were doing a coup, then they wouldn’t be coming to consult me on it, so we’re not too worried about that.

I like how the PM just talks openly about the reality that incumbent leaders normally don’t get a say in their successors. However that does change if the leader leaves on their own timetable.

CORIN Prime Minister, what about you? If you didn’t get across the line, is that it for politics for you?

JOHN Well, I don’t have a plan B. In other words, what happens if we lose the election? I’m totally focused on winning the election. But I’ve been reasonably upfront with people, saying that, you know, eventually, if you lose an election, generally there’s a change of leader. If there’s a change of leader, I don’t think it’s actually healthy to get in the way of the next leader. And most prime ministers that have lost elections haven’t stayed around long, long-term. But in the end, I hope we win, and I hope we get to stay there, because it’s very much unfinished business.

I don’t think anyone expects the PM would stay around if he lost the election.

CORIN The election next year; are we looking at a November election, essentially?

JOHN Uh, not guaranteed. I mean, we’re certainly picking an election at the back end of the year. There’s no reason to go early, but we’ll just need to think about that window of when it would make perfect sense. There are issues that we have to consider. Australia hosting the G20 at the end of the year, bits and pieces like that. So we’ll just sort of think that through, but, look, it’s in that window, I think, of sort of September to November roughly, but we’ll make an announcement sometime next year.

The G20 is mid November so that might discourage a November election. However we do not normally attend the G20. Maybe we will get a special invite as Australia is hosting it?

    “One of the big advantages is that we’re both central-right, so I think we’re smart enough to work out that if we want an enduring policy, then we need to make change that we can take the public with us.”

    That sentence right there demonstrates why National have failed to change the political character of this nation the way it needed to be changed.

    In clinging to the security blanket of “centre right”, Key and English have been too timid to advance ideas and actions that will drag NZ from the socialist mire.

    “Centre right” is in reality just a euphemism for slightly less left than the Labour Party, who are way over to the left and nowhere near the centre.

    The Nats are failing in their duty to drag the political psyche of this country far to the right of where it is today. If they did that, they could restore the perceived “centre” to its real place on the political spectrum. Not far to the left as it is now.

    I agree with Peter George. There is such a thing as the “Overton Window” and it wouldn’t be responsible for the National Party to position itself outside of it. It’s up to those of us in the wider society to set the conditions under which politicians share the same concerns and priorities as us. If you do that, parties seeking government will follow as easily as night follows day.

    That’s easier said that done – but it’s democracy. Politics is the art of the possible.

    To an extent – the paradigm is exemplified by Peter Dunne who provides the most transparent window into the soul of politicians. He is a man without much in the way of principles apart from self-benefit. He consistently opts for meaningless, highly technical ministerial portfolios. He was once a sensible centrist. Then, when he thought there was a niche in campaigning against homosexuals he became a kind of Christian conservative. Then, when he thought he could score a few more points with outdoorsmen he hoovered up Outdoor Recreation. When the winds changed, he dropped the moral conservatism. Casting around for an ideology to see he has more latterly opted for a “Liberal Democrat” persona – which is apt given the existential crisis the UK Lib Dems find themselves in. I take it on the weekend he has decided that he will now be a ‘sensible environmentalist’ as he obviously thinks there is mileage in attacking the Greens if they look like they might participate in government.

    If you want to really change the parameters of politics in this country, you need to think: “what would it take to get Peter Dunne to change his stance on this issue.”

    Its funny how the commenters who most frequently complain about commenting restrictions on my own blog are seen here unleashing bitter personal attacks rather than addressing the issue.

    This is part of Key and English’s job. As dififcult as it is, they just have to penetrate the shallow or one dimensional political intellects of these incoherent losers. Install some real perspective and drag them to a position where they actually have some knowledge of politics outside of the severely crippled window of opportunity that currently exists.

    If Key and English can achieve this feat, the simpleton trolls might have some improved political reference points which should enable them to argue with at least some degree of substance. Rather than just sneer in abject ignorance.

    The principles that underpin a belief system and an effective political party do not change just because the date has changed.

    The principles that underpin traditional Conservatism are designed to be the most effective principles against government tyranny, and weather it is 1813 or 2013 those principles will still be the same steady honest and true antidote to cultural and political totalitarianism.

    Those who say principles should change or be discarded as times go by are just unknowing braindead robots repeating effete prog crap designed to empower and institutionalise the left as the default political choice.

    Which is all fair enough, but it’s perfectly possible to operate in areas that nudge that window wider in the direction you want to go, and as Red quite correctly says, any party calling itself any form of “Right” has a duty to do more than simply slow the seemingly inexorable leftwards and statist drift. That’s difference between “leadership” and the John and Bill show.

    Again, I agree to an extent with Peter George but with a few refinements. I don’t think that a politican should change his beliefs to suit the tone of the times. I think that’s the path to hell, actually, because you’ll soon end up with an “ends justifies the means mindset” where the only ends are power or keeping your teeth tightly on the public teat.

    However, I agree that a politician or party should calibrate their priorities and public pronouncements to what’s actually achieveable in the context of the times and wants of a country. I don’t think it’s justified to support gay marriage because you want to be on ‘the right side of history’ but I do think it’s justified not to die in a ditch over it because you don’t think that will do much good.

    A fine distinction, perhaps – but a morally important one.

    Occasionally you will get a politician of such prodigious talent that he or she can shift the electorate using personal suasion. Those people are exceeding rare though and I wouldn’t chastise any politician for judging that they coulnd’t pull that off.

    Let me put it this way. As a matter of personal morality and public policy I am against elective abortion because I believe it is the unjust termination of a human life. It is the most importand issue for me. Should I therefore only vote for a party that has no chance of winning because it promises to ensure the law, as written, is correctly implemented?

    Not necessarily. Whether I like it or not, the majority of New Zealanders don’t agree with me. If the abortion debate was to be re-opened as a matter of public policy, then I’m not confident things wouldn’t get worse. My prudential judgement tells me that I should support politicians? Politicians who I believe are more receptive to a pro-life message (like Bill English or Judith Collins) and who could be persuaded to take some steps in my direction? Or out and out out-and-out crusaders on the issue who will be easily marginalised? What will do more actual good?

    If use my vote in that way, while doing everything I can to firmly and effectively, push against the abortion culture in my own family, friends, community and neighbourhood – am I a traitor to my conscience?

    He has made the problem worse.

    Kiwiblog (or Kommieblog to be more accurate) for example is today filled with Key loyalists who are all basically left wing Progressive stooges.

    Redbaiter –

    Have you noticed that there is a slight difference in size of the readership of kiwiblog (softcock, prog-appeasing National party proggy prog blog) and Truebluenz (uncompromising, principled conservonutter echo chamber??)

    There’s a lesson in that for you. If you’re smart enough to learn it…

    “There’s even a signifcant change in attitude in the Vatican going on…” What on earth are you talking about? I wouldnt be so harsh on Peter Dunne if he had been mroe measured on either occasion.

    We’re not talking decades here. Peter Dunne, when the leader of what by your own standard was a Christian Conservative party, said: “The state sanctions marriage simply because marriage invariably involves children, so there’s a need to have some protections in there. I don’t think the same applies with regard particularly to same-sex relationships and I think the state should butt out.”

    Which is basically my position too.

    He then voted for the Gender Claification amendment and as late as 2012 he was against SSM. Then Barack Obama admitted he supported it, the underlying politics changed, and all of a sudden Peter Dunne had done a complete volte-face on the matter.

    Does the Peter Dunne of that moment believe the Peter Dunne of just a few months earlier was an unreasonable bigot?

    @Peter George – just anticipating your objection ok? Yep, there are plenty of other politicans who voted against civil unions and for gay marriage. From my standpoint, however, there is a key difference which is that I don’t think John Key, Judith Collins, Clayton Cosgrove and Tariana Turia really tried to make electoral hay out of their earlier opposition or to establish some sort of social conservative bona fides they didn’t really have.

    Peter Dunne did – which is why I think he’s so vulnerable to accusations of hypocrisy.

    by your own standard was a Christian Conservative party

    What? I’ve never said anything like that.

    United Future was formed from the merger of liberal centrist party United New Zealand and Christian-dominated conservative Future New Zealand to contest the 2002 election. United, formed as a centrist party by a group of moderate Labour and National MPs, held one seat in parliament—that of Dunne

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Future

    There was a Christian Conservative element in the party, but that was only one part, and not the Dunne part.

    Cato – more things you seem to misunderstand about Dunne.

    He strongly supported the decriminalisation of homosexuality when it became an issue in the mid 1980s.

    In a 2008 interview, he suggested it may be time to review New Zealand’s abortion laws and leave the decision to a woman and her doctor, based on informed consent

    That seems contrary to some of your claims. No sign of Christian Conservatism there.
