A More Positive New Zealand

Today I spoke frankly in Parliament.

I am concerned about the growing gap between rich and poor, what it is doing to our social fabric, and what it is doing to our economic prospects.

My concern formed a big part of my original decision to stand for Parliament. And – as you would expect – addressing inequality was a major theme in my maiden speech to Parliament.

Since then, things have got worse. The current Government is content to pass tax laws that drive the wedge between rich and poor.  It is not good enough.

Labour does not accept the inevitability of a growing gap between the haves and the have-nots.  We have a positive vision for New Zealand, where every New Zealander has the opportunity to succeed.

I’d be interested to hear what you think.
