Gosh , this could almost have been written in response to Luxon's silencing of Maureen Pugh:-


"It is undeniably tragic that “democratically elected” has been so diluted. It has been [made] so by the piss and wind of those who have, over the last half century in the West, tried to persuade us that being a clone of the Cabinet has nothing to do with the Party threshing machines that slash and hammer all MPs, Congressmen, and legislators everywhere into perfectly formed grain with no seed of an original idea.


What their lobby-fodder votes do is create a barely disguised lockstep fascism that is the quintessential destroyer of free-speech direct democracy.

" betrayed and almost destroyed our fine little country,"


But they didn't do that all by themselves ; they had the groundwork

laid for them by successive (or alternating if you like) National and Labour governments , going back several decades.


Refusal to acknowledge this fact will ensure that the destructive agenda continues , perhaps at a slightly slower pace. Boiling frogs slowly etc.


That raises the question :-

"What is the alternative?. Act is our last chance but they won't get in on their own so like it or not we need National to get in ."
