Possible flag design for the proposed Aotearoa Environmental Socialist Party

Pork Barrel politics? You haven’t seen anything yet. A well know political strategist for the failed Internet Mana party is currently proposing a new party. He is either back on some one’s pay roll or it could just be a brain fart.

…is there political space on the NZ spectrum for a real Left Party as we have seen in Greece and Spain?

…What would a new left party look like and what strategy?would they adopt?

Of course we all know just how well Greece and Spain are doing right now don’t we?

The ( theoretical )? Aotearoa Environmental Socialist Party is going to be expensive as like most left wing parties it is very big on spending and weak on income generation.

Fully funded Public Broadcasting

-Gender pay equity

-Universal Basic Income

-Living Wage legislation

-End private prisons and increase rehabilitation services

-Vice Tax on alcohol, sugar, gambling and tobacco
