It was worth reposting on it’s own
I’m in Epsom- Seymour’s electorate.
Assuming we have elections again it is the party vote that will get ACT with more seats.
Electorate votes will not matter much for ACT apart from Epsom.
Parliament is made up from Party votes.
Why give your once in three year vote to Notional when they have not stood up for us on anything.
Use your wisdom to look at what do they do for you, what do they do for your country, and what kind of future are they leaving your children and younger relatives?
Notional went against us on gun confiscation and voted for the Zero Carbon nonsense. They did not really examine the gun issue. These are professional politicians well paid to examine the issues. They have not. The Tarrant event was a black swan event. It will not be repeated and was performed by a foreign national but NZ citizens were punished with Ardern point scoring for the UN. Notional voted emotionally – not on facts. That was hopeless.
Not only were they complete traitors on the Carbon Crap, they said they opposed it but would vote for it and change things when they got into power. Duh. If a 5 year old said that you would look sideways and say nothing. If a thirteen year old said that you would be compelled to school them. Totally daft esp. given Notional never reverse Labour legislation.
Notional are about to get shown up again. It looks like Labour will amend the RMA to enable more building. This was Notional’s swan cry for years and when they had a clear majority in 2008 -11 they did nothing. I dont want to hear excuses. Notional passed the hideous thing in the first place under Bolger/Upton then whinged like little bitches ever since.
Minor stuff like end of life for a handful of people affected and only voluntary is not really enough IMO to hold a vote back from ACT. It will be interesting to see their stance on immigration. The main justification was labour shortage. I cannot see this as an issue for years to come.
National never stood up for free speech when it was under attack in August 2018.
Conclusion: The thing that makes up parliament is the party vote for proportion. The local candidate stuff is just a popularity side show. Party vote ACT.
