WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.
My next steps are: use emotive language
Is labor the best party to vote for? Personally I think labor is the best party to vote for. there are three policies that I would like to talk about. The first policy I will explain is Increased funding for public transport in Christchurch.
The first policy is Increased funding for public transport in Christchurch. Labour believes that investment is required in Christchurch’s public transport infrastructure. Since the earthquakes, population growth and economic development has caused increasing congestion in the city. Labour would expand the network over time. Along with commuter rail, the funding would be available to support infrastructure for buses and bus feeder services. Funding for these investments would come from the National Land Transport Fund. Labour is going to raise $100m for public transport.
The second policy is Increased funding for regional roading throughout New Zealand. Labour believes that regional transport, and roads in particular, are struggling to keep up with growth in heavy traffic and tourist numbers. Funding outside the main centres has not kept up with regional needs and some roads are poorly maintained. Labour would increase funding for regional transport. This funding would be available for transport projects outside major metropolitan areas which would create a regional economic benefit, such as upgrades of regional state highways or significant regional roads. Labour would focus in particular on improvements directed at safety. The funding range available for regional transport would be doubled from $70 - $140 million to $140 to $280 million.
A policy that I disagree with is Abolish National Standards. Abolishing National Standards means that labour is getting rid of it. One reason why I disagree with this policy is because national standards are better the way it is. Secondly national standards inform how good students are doing in school.
Is labour the best party to vote for? Personally I think labour is the best party to vote for. Increase funding for public transport in Christchurch, Increase funding for regional roading and labour getting rid of national standards. In conclusion labour is the best party to vote for.
