“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”
- Wholeheartedly support past and future Covid vaccination, lockdowns and draconian restrictions of the unvaccinated - oops, SAME as Labour
- Embrace modern interpretation of the Treaty of Waitangi and the “partnership” between Maori and the Crown - oops, SAME as Labour
- Support co-governance, but only in certain areas and to undefined extents - not quite the same as Labour. But full co-governance is likely once the Maori activists, media, woke academics and celebs all start screaming racist at Chris, who sticks to his guns like a firearms abolitionist
- Entirely agree with apocalyptic man-made global warming, current climate change policy and 2050 Net Zero Emissions strategy - oops, SAME as Labour. Who says policy has to be logical or evidence based - just trendy and popular, right? Chris embodies that ethos in his leadership style.
- Repeal Three Waters and replace it with ????? (to be decided in consultation with iwi after the election). May still have to give iwi 50% control, based on the points above but, hey that’s politics - Sounds impressive and opposes Labour, even though National don’t have a viable alternative.
- Repeal the Maori Health Authority. Although that’s a shit-load of work so we’ll probably keep it and pretend to make the health system less racist by setting up a weekly Lotto draw for non-Maori which lets you win your operation by buying a ticket. Powerball gives you full Te Aka Whai Ora benefits - standard National practice of keeping bad Labour policies but tweaking them.
- Get tough on crime. Not sure how. Labour are really tackling the gangs by telling them to pull their heads in. By the time we get elected there won’t be any liquor stores left so that should solve the ram-raiding problem and probably reduce family violence as well - just like Labour, there are no firm policies to tackle gangs
- TENTATIVE SUGGESTION - change National Leader [***RESTRICTED ACCESS - Don’t show Chris***].
And so the long-suffering, somewhat apathetic and accepting NZ public end up with little choice in 2023.
