TREMAIN: Wedges

Under Labour, trust in virtually all public institutions has been destroyed. This is not the Kiwi way. A major priority of a NACT government will be to unambiguously show itself to be trustworthy. That will be a vital to the remedial process. Corruption, unlike wealth, always trickles down.

Here we have it in a nutshell - politically driven wedges clearly described, as only an eminent cartoonist can do it : 1. Climate fiction; 2. Unfree speech; 3. Covid drama; 4. Racial divide. In this order. I put Racial Divide last - because that problem is specific to New Zealand (and, by the way, also to Australia and Canada).


But we share the first 3 problems with most Western democracies, including the largest ones, namely the United Kingdom and the United States.


I believe that within the next few months (note : before the October New Zealand elections!) at least the Climate fiction (fundamentally the NetZero delusion) will implode. Just look at the present political situation in Europe …

Another gem from garrick Tremain.

Make no mistake, for the past 6 years this incalcuably inept and corrosive government that we've all had the displeasure to experience has based every single thought on policy they've formulated on one foundation.

DIVISION.

They wring their hands and complain constantly about the " haves" being " entitled".

No. The " haves" or " rich pricks" as they love to label the independent and rational amongst us have got to where we are through self determination, hard yakka and I'm sick and tired of socialist utopian beatnicks thinking up more ways to rob us because we have the fortitude to drag the sorry arse out of the fartsack every morning and work for …

Well said. Just on these people we elect to represent us; can anyone provide a rational explanation as to why we pay them a starting salary of over $3,000 p'week, and more than $5,000 p'week no matter what their previous experience or qualifications?

Surely that brings the (now obvious) risk that we might attract unhealthy people into the governing fold.

As you say Aaron - "a big fat cosy club".

There is much to fix it seems.

Civil discourse is what we need. We need to respect other peoples opinions, this is real Democracy. I feel so many have become dogmatic now and dismissive of others views. Yes, we need to change the government but there are many avenues under MMP to achieve this.


We are not here to tell others who to vote for. We simply need to explore all the options with an open mind.


Personally, I would prefer the forum to be open to all opinions as long as reasons were given why these views are held.

I try to state why I have the views I do. Sometimes it feels that people are not actually reading what I write.
