Oh dear... ACT using the MAGA slogan, changed to "Make Aotearoa Great Again"

 

 

Did they get access to a cheap supply of surplus US stock ?

 

 

They probably got red MAGA hats and died yellow...

It makes sense, ACT is a crazy as the Republicans and with his beliefs and intellect  Seymour could be one of  Trumps offspring

I read a couple of articles describing the reaction of some of the ACT voters, they were getting angry that the word Aotearoa was used, not New Zealand. There were a lot of angry people/quotes it seems.

 

Even if you yourself are not racist, how does one reconcile the fact that all the racists vote for the person/party that you do?

 

I just don't think I could be associated in any way to a group that attracts loads of revolting people.

I can't recall the same level of hand-wringing when Shane Jones did this

I see Simon has been covering himself is glory by meeting with Teddy Locsin the Secretary of Foreign Affairs in the Philippines.

 

 

 

Simon said:

 

"A privilege to meet with "@teddyboylocsin , Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines. We discussed issues facing the Asia-Pacific and how we can strengthen the special relationship our two countries share."

 

 

 

Locsin has posted on Twitter " I believe that the Drug Menace is so big it needs a FINAL SOLUTION like the Nazis adopted. That I believe. NO REHAB."

Can you provide sources for those quotes? If Locsin really said that, and Bridges really sucked up to him as reported, then Bridges needs to resign and be hounded out of Parliament immediately! There can be no tolerance for a remark like that. The Holocaust is not a meme to be bandied about. Simon Bridges should shamed, either for glossing over that despicable reference, or for being ignorant of it. Either one disqualifies him from New Zealand politics.

I am a long time National voter but I cannot and will not vote for them while they stick with their incredibly incompetent and frankly abomination of a leadership team.

I wouldn't hold much hope for this electoral cycle. A desperate Labour Party sometimes produces good policy (interest free student loans) and I can't see Bridges out-communicating Ardern in a debate. 

 

Frankly I'll be happy if Jones and NZ First end up out of Parliament, regardless of the actual governing party.

I can't see Bridges performing well in a debate against a raisin or a turnip

He's going to have to start making better choices than having his trip to China organised by someone who is described as a trainer of Chinese spies (but who may well do more than that).

Way to go Simon.
