National's list

National has released its party list, and it's not a list from which I'd be able to make up a decent cabinet. In fact, you'd have to go a long, long, long way down the list before you'd find someone with whom you'd even want to have a drink.

But according to half of you reading this, it's this list that you think should be making up the Treasury benches come November.

Why?

National does appear to be heavily signaling its intent once it reaches the treasury benches after nine long years in waiting.

They are aiming for a government of mediocrity in their first term. What's the bet that without ACT as part of the government and in senior economic cabinet positions that the forthcoming National government is going to come up short of their target. A LAME government that achieves nothing but drawing ministerial salaries.

Proud? Proud!

Because - aside from armed rebellion and revolution - this is the best we can get in NZ's rorted and maorimandered electoral system.

. A LAME government that achieves nothing but drawing ministerial salaries.


And compared to the last 9 years? paradise!

If this government does nothing except set up a truly independent anti-corruption commission - and that commission finally banned Labour & Greens & NZF & the Unions - then that would in itself be a great contribution to New Zealand

A big win would be for a NatACT gummint to set up ZERO commissions in their first term. Paradise would be FEWER commissions, boards and departments at the end of the first term.

Dream on. They'll do nothing of the sort. Read this next bit carefully and remember it well; A National government will not set up a commission that will ban Labour, Greens or the Unions.

Did you get that? Do you understand? The Nat Socialists will not do anything like your silly ravings, wishes & dreams. Never have, never will. Your hopeless lustings are not what they are about.

Now stop wasting everyone's time with your hopeless drivel.
