There could be multi-party study of Child Poverty as the growth in inequality has been a main stream global phenomenon for four decades. When Labour brought in Roger Douglas in 1984 they joined that path. It has become so much a part of politics in NZ, under Labour’s lead really, that profound global solutions can’t even be talked about and Labour is not likely to provide any real alternative discussion. The Greens at least could, but will not want to rock the boat. National should be able to manipulate such a multi-party group to their medium term political advantage.
