Too much has already been written about why Labour lost the last election, and now I’ve slowly begun the redundant process of figuring out how I intend to stick my oar in.

By way of a first illustration take a headline policy of one of the parties of the current Coalition Government: Whanau Ora. A policy that attempts to readdress the same problems replicating a key plank of the 4th Labour Government’s 1999 election mandate. A policy targetting electorates Labour has all but had a mortgage on since before the Second World War, a group of electorates that Phil Goff talked about clean-sweeping.

Yet searching labour.org.nz Google can only find 8 results for “Whanau Ora” within the last year, and the MP who is getting the best dirt on the program is Winston Peters. Just take a gander at Scoop’s most recent articles on the search page and wonder where Labour have been all this time.
