What do you do when you have no new policy?

’s sixth pledge of more cataract and joint operations has been reported as something new – remember Labour said they had lots of new policies for the campaign.

However as the NZ Herald points out they not only announced this pledge in May, they have been repeating it every week since then. The only genuinely new policy announced is the daft student loans one which they probably dreamed up in a few hours when they were panicking. It is notable they are still refusing to have that policy costed.
