ACT unveils Party List

8 COMMENTS

  1. First time ever I’ve just visited the Act site.
    It suggested I might like to “Be the first of your friends to like this”.
    Um, yep, no thanks.
    However it did lead me to the discover that David has “appeared on almost every Canadian media outlet”. I’m not going to fact check that but here he is explaining the benefits of taxi deregulation, which, incidentally, worked so well in the USA (not).

  2. Interesting… ACT’s Deputy Leader, Kenneth Wang, was well down on the Party List. An unheard of situation and one which raises eye-brows as to what the heck is going on in that party.

    If this signals ructions within ACT, I am not surprised.

    ACT’s neo-liberal policies are no longer in fashion and are being repudiated around the world. Even National has been pinching policies from Labour. (Except for housing. On Planet English, sleeping in a car counts as “having a roof over your head”.)

    When political parties find themselves on the ‘outer’ of public opinion, and their support falls accordingly, internecine warfare usually follows. (Which is rather refreshing in this case, as that affliction usually hits left-wing parties.)

    Whether or not Seymour manages to drag another ACT MP into Parliament on his “tail-coating”, I’ve no idea. But like Social Credit, it is past it’s Use-By date.

    There will be much State services to re-build and ACT (and it’s fellow travellers in the NZ Initiative/Business Roundtable) may squawk and screetch as their policies are wound back. But screw it, we’ve had thirty-plus years of neo-liberalism and we’re still waiting for the Promised Land to materialise.

    It was a failure in 1984 and it’s still a failure.

      It’s fairly standard neolibtard capitalist procedure, make someone else do the actual work, direct operations from the shadows and collect any profits generated.

  3. ACT. A funny name for a pack of useless, lazy, greedy, bastards.

    What’s not funny is that in there, in the gloom of their all but empty halls and weak warm tea there is the collapse of NZ. roge the dodge douglas. ( Once in hell, I’m going to look you up. )

    • ACT – another name for Roger Douglas nostalgists.
      Like the one named above, they each deserve their very own gibbet on Tyburn Hill.

    • It actually stands for “Association for Concerned Taxpayers”. You know, the type of people who work hard all day and see their money being squandered by parasitic government workers in Wellington who add no value to the economy, the country or humanity in general.

      e.g most of the government funded IT industry

  4. What I’d really like to know is , … do they all walk around with capital ‘H’s on their foreheads like Rimmer – oops ! , – I meant Seymour … ?

    My , … what a bizarre collection of individuals… I would give that lot a wide berth ,… there’s something kind of creepy about them if you ask me…

  5. If these door knocker clowns step onto my property, can I charge them rent at market rates?
