New Zealand government

The Labour leader has been promoted heavily by the liberal left, a bit like Macron was.

But like Macron the government has faced big strikes against austerity cuts. Itís also in alliance with a far right party and promised immigration cuts.

Anyone here from New Zealand? Any views if you are?

My wife is a Kiwi. It is inaccurate to describe New Zealand First as Far Right. It is a populist party, Farage not Tommy Robinson.
The Labour tradition in New Zealand is quite different from that in the UK. When the parties formed NZ was largely an agrarian society and labour wasn't representing the urban proletariat but relativity wealthy (by European standards) dock workers and other unionised labour. The current PM may seem left by NZ standards but isn't that left wing. She just seems that way to the sort of national voter who is convinced that everyone else is a bludger (while they put all their assets into a trust so the state pays for them in old age)

Many liberals see the dichotomy as open v closed, rather than left v right.

It would seem that she is working wonders for the image of women and their right to balance work and home life. That is matter of equality and opportunity - two things liberals value dearly.

She’s also gone along with immigration cuts.

Personally I would put Farage as far right.

Liberals of course aren’t adverse to austerity and generally aren’t good with strikes and trade unions. There is no way a Lib Dem government in the U.K. would get rid of the anti union laws.
