Now for the world of hope National never considered

LETTER

I’m sorry Mr English, Mr Joyce, Ms Bennett etc — arrogance does not lead to governance.

Personally, I think three terms was more than enough for you to “right the wrongs”, “fix the problems” and “heal the wounds” that your past management has created.

I have become so tired of Mr English constantly referring to the “stable economy”. This was not created by the National Party, it was created by the wonderful achievements of New Zealand’s industry visionaries and the hard work of ordinary Kiwis.

National did not change the money earned by dairy, meat, wood, tourism or other markets. That change was developed by world trends and, in a few examples, by the magnet that our beautiful country creates.

How well did National perform on education, health and policing (crime), plus their treatment of those affected by the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes? Poorly, to say the least.

It is so easy to embellish your achievements through self-satisfying declarations but, seriously, what the hell have you actually done to improve the living standards of the ordinary people of New Zealand?

The wealthy have benefitted, but what did you do for those who sat a little below the radar?

You now have three years to re-evaluate what National could have actually done for the “ordinary people”. You had your chance but missed out this time.

Remember, while you are contemplating your navel, Labour, New Zealand First and the Greens will be building a world of hope that you have never given thought to.

Donald Trump’s vision was to build a wall between USA and Mexico.

Let us build a wall between equality, achievement and unnecessary racism, and destroy the dreams of National Party unfairness and ideology.

Have you had enough?

Yep, let’s do this.

By their deeds you shall know them, sayeth the Lord. Let's see what she can deliver. The coalition leader has a list of achievements that could be written on a thimble and despite being in opposition for nine years, our new PM is all about what and not much on how.

Well said Mike! As for you Gordon, you have no idea - like the rest of us - how the new PM will do. But I am so happy that National are not in for another term.

Only a couple of days gone by and the political protagonists have preached their mantras. Hope does not deliver food or warm shelter to the needy, and neither does pious quotations or condemning a new leader by their lack of previous leadership. An individual on their own cannot reinvigorate the fabric of the country, however a team all pulling in the right direction with a common goal can. The coalition needs to become an All Black.

Gordon negative Web - our new and gorgeous prime minister has been in power five minutes and already we have negativity. Give the young lady a break and go back under your shell.
