Be clear that TOP is about more than any set of policies. It's about a different style of politics

Be clear that TOP is about more than any set of policies. It's about a different style of politics

The public, and the media, are accustomed to parties being defined by their policies. So any list of TOP 7 policies runs the risk of permanently defining TOP in the minds of the public and the media. But it's my understanding, and my hope, that TOP is about much more than that: it is about an evidence-based approach to politics. I think TOP should be clear that the most important part of its mission - over and above any particular policies - is to bring an evidence-based voice to NZ politics.
