Today, words like simpering and spineless might be better descriptions of John Boy's Labour-lite and Phony Tony, his health spokesthing: they've already backed down on the "secret" proposal to loosen the leash even just a little bit on GPs.
Pathetic. One would say they lack the courage of their convictions -- if they had any.

There have been too many “me-too” responses from the Opposition lately, on everything from KiwiSaver to foreign policy to nuclear energy to climate change. Sooner or later, it has got to come up with some policy of its own. Preferably policy that differs from that of the Government.Looks like "later," if ever. It's looking more and more like the epithet "hollow men" was used one leadership regime too early.
