A good Kiwi Party policy

Gordon Copeland is in the Dom Post saying the Kiwi Party advocates floating 20% of SOEs’ shares to release about $5 billion for infrastructure.

As reported yesterday, the public are getting sub-standard information on SOEs, because they are 100% Government owned.

Kiwi Party policies

August 9th, 2008 at 1:01 pm by David Farrar

NZPA reports the Kiwi Party is having its inaugural national conference today. Some of the reported policies are:

  • Government subsidies for marriage preparation courses
  • Establishing a Royal Commission to address family breakdown
  • Repeal the Prostitution Reform Act
  • Raise the minimum wage from $12 to $15 an hour;
  • Introduce income splitting for married couples with children
  • Make houses more affordable by releasing more building land as new houses should cost $190,000
  • Sell 20 percent of State-owned Enterprises to investors who were resident in New Zealand

A mixture of the most stupid from the left (minimum wage to $15) and the right (repeal Prostitution Reform Act).

To be fair the policy to release more land for building is commendable, as is allowing Kiwis to invest in SOEs.
