Phil Goff Debate Disaster
The first debate between Labour Leader Phil Goff and
Prime Minister John Key took place tonight, and Phil
Goff made some huge tactical mistakes.
He had to lose his wimpy image while sticking to the
issues, he went about it the wrong way. In interviews
before this debate, he said he wont play the person
but he will stick to labour policies.
He did the opposite, every time Prime Minister John
Key talked, Goff interrupted him and attacked him and
National. Key remained cool and calm thruout, and gave
out stats and hard data for his view point.
One may even say, Key Played Goff perfectly, he went
fishing, Goff bit, and Key reeled him in with calm answers.
I'm not a political person, but Key's ideas seem better,
and Goff came across as old Labour.
It wasn't a huge knockout, 60-40 to Key I would say,
but it could of been a lot better for the people of
New Zealand if Goff had of known, how to debate.
Round one to National.
They are looking like a two term Government.
Time will tell.
