Labour's Secret Agenda

Hooton speculates about likely Labour policy in its historic fourth term, should it get one:

With Friday’s Roy Morgan poll suggesting that a Clark/Anderton/Norman (and, who knows, perhaps Peters) Government is now at least as likely as a Key Government, it is right that the same pressure be put on Labour to declare its policies (and any “secret agenda”) as has been put on National.
As of this morning, there is
no 2008 policy on the Labour website, despite the last legal date for the election being just 68 days away. But Chris Trotter’s complaints about the Listener have got me thinking again about the Left’s attitude to the media.
The Labour regime is not friendly towards a free media or free speech.
