MMP & Tory Policy issues

This comment on the release of the National Party's electoral law "policy" was passed to me - I thought it worth sharing as it reveals the commonly held perception that Key and his ventriloquist - English are but empty vessels when it comes to real policy development.

"Key policies" take on a different hue to what one normally expects leading up to an election. Instead of the profundity of detail and sharpness of focus that should be the hallmarks of well-thought-out ( even idealistic ) policy statements, we are subjected to Key’s announcements which are either knee-jerk critiques or envious blandishments in the form of promised higher tax cuts. How can the electorate possibly vote for a party with hollow or no-existent policies?

Never has so little been offered by so few to so many!
