Dear old David likes to dress up as right winger. Or at least describe himself as “center right’.
Yet if there’s ever any social issue to be discussed he’s on the left’s side.
If we differ, he’s right there pissing on our legs, and telling us we’re on fire.
Now you would think that anyone who was ever even the slightest bit right wing would advocate for smaller government over large.
Not so our Davey. Yesterday he said we should have 40 more MPs.
The size of Parliament should be increased to 160.
Shocking right? But that’s not all. One tenet of right wing philosophy (and I use that phrase loosely) is that nobody should be treated specially by law.
What’s our “right of center” Davey say about that?
“The alternative to Maori seats should be a lower threshold for parties representing Maori interests” and..
“All local authorities should have non-voting representatives of local Iwi on them, who have the same support and access as Councillors..”
He’s even partial to the Treaty of Waitiangi becoming supreme law-
“The Treaty of Waitangi should not be supreme law unless there is a mechanism to amend it.”
I have said it for some time, and I will say it again now- the problem with NZ politics is that we have imposters posing as right wingers and thereby preventing discussion from moving outside of the narrow spectrum of discussion “approved” by the power holding “Progressive” status quo.
We urgently need a non-left non-Progressive political alternative in NZ.
Unless you’re happy with more of the same racist Progressive bullshit for the next few decades.
