Unpopular politics

Here's an interesting idea for the upcoming political season: if you get a chance among all their me-tooing and baby-kissing, ask a political candidate which ideas they hold that are unpopular. That would certainly reduce John Key to silence (twice over in fact).

Anyway, head over to Farrar's and see what's regarded as unpopular in today's political environment in which capitalism, individualism, reason, the rule of law and the protection of individual and property rights are all considered beyond the pale.


  1. How about starting off by getting rid of all that Treaty of Waitangi B/S?

  2. Next get rid of the welfare state and all those parasites who rely on handouts.
