Labour’s legacy

Bruce Edwards writes:

Moir challenged Hipkins yesterday to name policies that the Labour Government might be remembered for, and he struggled. And as to what his political ambitions for the year are, he said rather honestly, “well, I’m aiming for us to have at least three more years after this where we can do a range of things as well”. In response, Moir sums this up as “the focus is getting back into power”.

In five years they have presided over a decline in almost every important indicator in health and education, and have pursued a bunch of bad policies that they have only dropped because of a looming election.

Hipkins is upfront that they just want to get back in, so they can then pursue the policies they have just dropped.
