Jim Bolger Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Jim Bolger from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

So I think that we're in a very heightened and somewhat
unusual period of politics and polling around the countries
that New Zealanders take close interest in.
- Jim Bolger

I mean you really can target your answers to get the
instant response and I think that is a very manipulative type of polling.
I really have no time for that worm at all.
- Jim Bolger

And I think the rolling polls put more pressure on
them to sustain their beliefs and to improve their
delivery of the policy and their delivery of the ideas
so that they can garner support for whatever principle they're articulating.
- Jim Bolger

I'm much more attracted personally to governments going their full term.
It's very hard to have a fixed term election I know with ah...
a parliamentary democracy, but I've always had an instinct
to say there should be a fixed term.
- Jim Bolger

 

And if you're getting a poll coming out month after
month saying something and then all of a sudden does
an enormous swing in one direction -
you are dealing with a more volatile electorate than
most people believe they have.
- Jim Bolger

Politicians, no matter who they are,
shouldn't be able to manipulate the public on a single
issue and then call an election at the height of support -
that's a little bit of a manipulation of democracy.
- Jim Bolger

So to that extent that was a very sharp reminder a
few months out from the election that we weren't performing
in the eyes of the public to the level that they wanted
if they were going to re-elect us.
So we went out and were much more upfront on issues.
- Jim Bolger

Nigel might have an earlier date, but I think it's

move very rapidly on some issues and therefore what
looks settled may not be.
- Jim Bolger

I think we have a fascinating new and quite dominant input into politics -
and it wont go away.

If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
