The long awaited world cup victory has happened and the memory of 2007 fades into the background.
So much energy and enthusiasm were focussed into the world cup campaign in an impressive way and a grand combining of national skills and resources played a huge part in the success.
Now, however, we need to give some thought to the upcoming election and what it means to business throughout the country. The party with the best policies for community and business should win the election. The party with the vision to support our manufacturing sectors supplying incentives and tools for success, is the party for the future.
We live in trying times. Sheltered we may be (a little) from events further afield but we need to perform well in business so our exports are sought after and our businesses do well on world markets.
I ask you all to think carefully about the government you want, the one to lead us through troubled times and support our going forward as a nation. Don’t be fooled by PR spin, look for substance, demand substance and vote for the party with it.
