Why are our MPs such patsies?

 The 100 Days – Claiming Back New Zealandwww.100days.co.nz

Given that we are a country in decline, it is time for our political party leaders to be told they are not born to rule, and need to recognize that individual members are adults and should be treated as such – to exercise their own judgment.

In fact we are well overdue to challenge our political parties in relation to the way they override individual MPs’ conscience votes. We would do far better to operate as the Tories do in Britain – where party dissent provides vigorous debate and a far more in-depth analysis of issues. For example, the recent challenges to Boris Johnson not only over party-gate, but over other issues of policy.

Meanwhile, Jacinda Arden is basking in photo opportunities overseas in relation to the signing of trade negotiations that were started well before her time in office, taking years to be settled – as each of the 27 member countries in the EU had to be reached and negotiated with separately. Moreover, the meat and dairy industries are very disappointed with the outcome of the free trade deal struck between New Zealand and the European Union, saying it falls far below their expectations. Some argue New Zealand should have walked away.

However,  one issue with which New Zealanders should be challenging Ardern is her constant referring to our country while she has been overseas as Aotearoa New Zealand. She has a nerve. She has not consulted with, nor been given permission by New Zealanders to change the internationally known name of this country. Nor was Aotearoa even the original Maori equivalent for our correct name.

Her behaviour is essentially fascist, with every government department now compromised, and our arguably corrupt mainstream media now touching its collective forelock, and substituting Aotearoa as well as unintelligible te reo terms for the language we all speak   – the most valued one in the world.

What has gone wrong with the rest of our parliamentarians? Who from Labour National, or ACT is objecting to this hijacking of our correct name? Why are questions not being asked in the House about what right Ardern has to hijack our country’s name, without consulting New Zealanders- who in fact have overwhelmingly rejected the use of Aotearoa…

 Not a squeak from Christopher Luxon,  who continues to disappoint with a lacklustre performance –  an undertaking to reverse The Three Waters power grab  but with apparently no comprehension that so many of the racist   provisions that both National and Labour  instituted over the years now need to be reversed. No country can succeed which divides its citizens along racial lines as a priority.                      

We have in fact an intellectually substandard political system when a determined leader such as a Helen Clark or a John Key can dominate and control party policy. This is far from healthy, and equally as bad is the mainstream media immediately pouncing on any signs that a party such as National, for example, may have members challenging its leadership, or openly debating or disagreeing on issues of policy. With its persistent mischief-making,  our media invariably try to promote this as an example of undesirable signs of instability within that particular party. It is in fact this is exactly what should be happening, that intelligent – and very often obviously far from genuinely intelligent   – men and women should come together to debate issues. To aim for a party to be controlled by its hierarchy is not only undesirable – it is an attack on free speech. Key was known to rule National, and caused a great deal of damage to the country. And while potential votes have been transferred from the Labour coalition –  so desperate are many New Zealanders to get rid of Ardern’s government – disappointment is now constantly voiced about the National leader’s substandard performance – and the way he is conducting himself. Luxon is apparently trying to run the National party as if he is the CEO of a corporation, with its members his employees. Moreover, equally disgraceful is the capitulation of grown men and women to being ordered about as if they are children – and unable to hold and defend their own intellectual positions.

Luxon’s pressure on Simon O’Connor to take down his sign of support for the US Supreme Court decision on Roe V Wade was viewed by many as essentially bullying. It was all very well to claim that O’Connor’s position  was not that of the National party. Nobody would have thought it was, so this was irrelevant. Nor was it to Simon O’Connor’s credit, after recently hollywooding on the importance of free speech, that he caved in and he did what he was told, essentially disappointing those who expect better things from him.

Where are the National party members with a spine? Ironically, too, while Luxon was busy virtue-signalling by “empathising” with the distress of those women who would no longer be able, as a constitutional right (which of course it never was) to have put to death an unborn son, or daughter, ACT’s pro-death David Seymour and Jacinda Ardern’s mouthpiece, Clarke Gayford, were only too anxious to slam this important pro-life decision – with Gayford’s wonderfully original, “That’s one small step for supreme court justices. One giant leap backwards for womankind.”

The greatest number of deaths now worldwide are from abortion, estimated at 73 million annually,  while many Western countries are now dangerously below the level at which the birthrate needs to be maintained to keep a country economically viable .

It will be not enough to see the this disastrous Labour coalition thrown  out next election if National, under the inappropriately dominating and under-performing Luxon,  can’t pull up its socks and produce a better more comprehensive set of policies to attack this racist malaise which is  an affliction on us all, both part-Maori and the majority of New Zealanders. It is failing too, intellectually, by endorsing the complete untruth of a climate change emergency which is serving Ardern so well.

And while Christopher Luxon is bragging about learning this now largely artificial language,  te reo – (why would one bother?) he may be interested in James Allan’s recent Spectator column summarizing his shock at what he encountered when returning recently to New Zealand – and the attack on English, and on our country, spearheaded by Ardern.

https://www.spectator.com.au/2022/07/some-have-wokeness-thrust-upon-them/  – New Zealand’s spiral downwards into irrationality.

It is well worth supporting The Australian Spectator for a far more comprehensive overview of what is happening  in, and to, this country we are losing.
