Meet the new boss...

...same as the old boss. Well, actually, same as all the other bosses.
Today, John Key gave his first speech as National Party leader, and it was as bad as I thought it would be. Filled with nothing but bland, soporific pragmatism and third-way, warm 'n' fuzzy, political code-speak, Key's speech says nothing and adds up to nothing. It does, however, reveal everything.
Let's all knit a safety net...
"There will always be a social welfare system in New Zealand because you can measure a society by how it looks after its most vulnerable. Once, I was one of them. I will never turn my back on that."
Government is the solution, not the problem...
"I believe in equal opportunity for all, and in the State playing its part to ensure this."
Plant a tree, find a friend...
"When I left university, if anyone had heard of global warming they were keeping it to themselves. Now, no one with any awareness of the world can be ignorant of it.
It is a mystery to me why the political Left acts as if it has a monopoly on environmental policies, when it is obvious to anyone who cares to look that all of us, across the political spectrum, with the exception perhaps of the Greens, have taken too long to put the protection of our environment at the forefront of our thinking.
That needs to change. In the National Party we have taken steps to do this, and we will be taking more steps."
Al Gore could have given Key's speech during his 2000 presidential campaign. In fact, I think he did.
