English says Labour can win

The Herald reports:

Labour could still win power at the next election, deputy leader and Finance Minister said in a speech warning against complacency.

“The Opposition can be divided, it can have many leaders and co-leaders, it can have no vision, very little policy, be disorganised but under MMP it can win and we need to remember that every single day.”

Labour and Greens and NZ First and Mana and Dotcom. Your alternative Government.

He said National would need to win the highest vote any incumbent Government had ever won – it was re-elected for a second term in 2011 with 47.31 per cent of the vote.

47% may not be enough is what he is saying.

He also told delegates to make no assumptions about who was a potential voter, pointing to a large representation at the conference from south Auckland.

Good to see.
