Well it is less than two months until the next general election in New Zealand and I must admit I feel more unsure than ever about who I will vote for. Traditionally I have tended to vote Labour because they have always seemed to have a good social conscience while avoiding what I used to interpret as the anti-science attitude of the Greens. However of late I’ve found the Greens support of science reassuring.
Unfortunately, I don’t have much time to research the various policies (science and otherwise) of the different political parties, so what I thought I would do is open this up to readers to provide arguments they have for who to vote for. However, I would like this to be an informed discussion which focuses on policies and evidence and avoids the personal attacks and innuendo which so often occurs between politicians and flows over into the media. Provide links where you can.
So who are you thinking of voting for and what policies and positions are helping you make your decision?
