A woman employed as a day labourer in a South Auckland factory would probably have to work for six months to pay the cost of National’s Minister of Women’s Affairs, Hekia Parata’s visit to San Francisco, where she will live it up in a talkfest chaired by one of America’s most dangerous Marxists.
Ms Parata will attend the APEC Women and the Economy Summit, also in San Francisco from September 13-16. US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, will chair discussion which will focus on the Government’s key priorities of: increasing the number of women in leadership; increasing women’s economic independence; and driving economic growth.
“New Zealand already has a strong international reputation for gender equality, as shown by our 5th ranking in the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2010,’’ says Ms Parata.
“We have also had a lot of recent success with the NZX proposing new rules that will require all publicly listed companies to declare how many women they have in senior roles and the New Zealand Institute of Directors’ establishing a new mentoring scheme aimed at increasing the number of women on NZX-listed boards.
What utter crap. Hekia Parata is yet another National politician who would be a better ideological fit for Labour than National. How the hell can we ever turn NZ around when the National Party is so hopelessly confused about what it stands for and has so few real differences with the Marxists of Labour? As for the NZX and the Institute of Directors, spineless political cronyists showing typical symptoms of the fatal socialist disease by their cuddling up to Marxists. We need a Sarah Palin to sort these losers out.
