Labour should focus on Policies not Personalities

Published: Tue 26 Oct 1999 01:24 PM
ACT leader Hon Richard Prebble in response to media inquiries said that he was
not going to respond in kind to the very personal abuse from Labour’s deputy
leader Michael Cullen.
“I also note that the labour frontbencher Trevor Mallard has lowered himself to
personal attacks on ACT, said ACT leader Hon Richard Prebble.
“I believe that Labour is concerned at ACT’s rapid rise in the polls. My advice
to the Labour party leadership is to address the issues that ACT is raising,
rather than falling back on personal abuse.
“And if I could offer them some other good advice, the electorate is fed up
with bad behaviour by politicians. Let them follow ACT’s lead, which focuses on
positive change and campaigning on policies not personalities,” said ACT
leader Hon Richard Prebble.
