National goes for the regional vote – MSN

National has moved its campaign into rural New Zealand as it goes for the regional vote.

It’s gunning for Labour over its policy to bring farmers into the Emissions Trading Scheme and says proposed new taxes will hit the regions hard.

Party leader Bill English was speaking at a farmers’ meeting in Ashburton on Tuesday as his senior spokesman released National’s plan for regional New Zealand.

Economic development spokesman Simon Bridges and primary industries spokesman Nathan Guy said voters had a clear choice between “two very different visions”.
