The wealthy, the billionaire Class and the richest 1% have donated $12million to ACT and National since 2021 and they are getting their money’s worth.
The anger many feel towards Labour post-Covid means National and ACT can stand any policy up and barely anyone will scrutinise it in their rush to punish Labour for every sad thing that has happened to them since Covid.
We are all now as unforgiving as the woke.
Because we are hate voting this election, we are going to accidentally elect the most far right Government since Roget Douglas.
I say accidentally because I suspect the vast number of voters who voted Labour in 2020 and who are now voting National or ACT have very little idea what their policies are, they just want to say ‘Fuck you’ to Labour.
National have promised to give rich Landlords a $250 fortnight tax cut funded by stealing from 2 year olds, mutilating public transport and literally stealing from the climate change fund.
The obscenity of this turns to farce when you consider the foreign buyers tax won’t generate anything close to what National claim it will!
Normally National have to hide their blatant self interest the way you trick a dog into taking its pills by hiding it in something tasty, but National are so convinced that hatred of Labour is all they need, they haven’t even pretended to dress the venality of their tax cut for the rich funded by the poor as anything more than it is.
Which it isn’t.
It’s active state sanctioned vandalism of the egalitarian society.
Orgy of Privatisation and Crony Capitalism:
You know the only winners in National’s road, road, roads policy?
The oil companies.
By moving away from petrol charges to miles driven, National hand the petrol companies a huge win and when you consider the early signals of the vast crony capitalism National are about to embark upon…
…we face an orgy of privatisation and crony capitalism!
Dr Bryce Edwards devastating critique into who is donating to National and the disgusting level of self interest is remarkable and shocking!
Alongside this orgy, National are lining up Public Private Partnership scams, removing foreign buyer bans and opening the immigration floodgates.
National’s only economic plan is to open the country to foreign buyers, slash the State and privatise the rest.
The Crony Capitalism National will unleash will make Labour’s sins look childish in comparison.
National will hack at the State to carve out deals for their mates while ACT will hack at the State for ideological purity.
The number 4 on ACTs Party List, that pale faced former Pharmaceutical Pimp Candidate. The steam off a sadists glasses vibe guy, the sort of person who would be found with an unexplainably large amount of children shoes, him – tell me that guy ain’t there to privatise Pharmac for his former industry?
National and ACT will dump the Fair Pay Agreements and give Bosses the right to fire before 90 days.
This is a direct assault on the Union Movement and empowers the low wage economy National donors have become addicted to.
Expect migrant worker exploitation to explode throw the roof.
Class War on Renters:
Real Estate Pimps have donated millions to National and in return National have lifted the Foreign Buyers Ban and will give landlords the right to kick tenants out with no notice. National and ACT will also role back Tenants rights while reopening Landlord tax loop holes.
There is a class war on renters but we don’t have the political vocabulary to articulate it.
By opening NZ up to foreign speculators while reopening landlord tax loops holes, National and ACT are opening NZ up for sale to their overseas wealthy mates.
Environmental Bonfire of the Vanities:
National and ACT will reverse oil and gas bans and steam full ahead at the Climate Change Iceberg. They will allow Agriculture another 5 years of doing nothing (that will be a total of 25 years of doing nothing) while slashing public transport and climate change budgets.
They will greenwash everything and lie about the rest.
The planet will burn and National and ACT will pour petrol on it.
Amputation of the State:
National and ACT have promised 14 000 job cuts and the amputation of 5 ministries and the Human Rights Commission. They will slash and burn the State and hack away at it with the ideological fervour of self-flagellating puritans.
As a bottom line, ACT are demanding a referendum to renegotiate the Treaty with Māori and then just foist that upon Māoridom!
What in our 184 year history makes anyone believe that Māori will just accept that?
This referendum will generate an enormous social backlash and the hikoi to Wellington will become our largest protest march. Parliament Lawns will be Occupied, the real possibility of civil disobedience will erupt and all because ACT want to play race baiting games unleashing the worst angels of our nature.
Gun Fetishist Fantasies:
The Gun lobby have deep control over ACT now and the killing off of the Gun Registry (an act the Police Association says is crazy, which really is saying something coming from the Police Association), and allowing the sociopaths submachine gun of choice back on the streets is truly the foreplay of a charmless man.
Private Prison Empire and Prison Riot:
National are promising to throw State Tenants onto the street while ACT promise a billion dollars to build more prisons!
You know the ‘Private prison’ solution is around the corner.
Our current publicly funded prisons are close to snapping point and the incompetence of technology and staffing of the home monitoring system that can be tricked by fucking tin foil are all red flags that the system can’t manage the prison popualtyioin they have, let alone pouring thousands more into it!
The recipe for an enormous prison riot is building.
