…so National actually started the process to signing up to this UN migration pact which they are now demanding to pull out of?

Ouch.

Oh God.

Ouch.

It was embarrassing enough to watch National desperately flail around and announce that they would pull out of the UN  immigration pact...

This is symbolic sophistry because the UN migration pact is completely voluntary, Bridges needs to deflect the perception National are little more than a front organisation for Chinese business fronts and looking tough against the UN does that.

…the political desperation that drove this for a dog whistle to distract from Bridges leadership wobbles is ugly enough, but the truth bomb Winston dropped just managed to make the whole thing even more manufactured…

Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters calls out National on UN’s Global Compact

Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters has criticised National for attacking a United Nations pact on migration, which he says the party initiated in 2016.

Outside the debating chamber Peters said National’s document, which was unanimously passed by resolution, gave rise to the current pact and was the primary document that started the whole process.

“It said it would work towards a paper completed in 2018 and that’s the paper now,” he said.

“The National Party is out there complaining about a process and document that they were the originators of and were going happily along with until they thought they would get some political advantage and I’m calling them out.”

…so National actually started the process to signing up to this UN migration pact which they are now demanding to pull out of?

It’s like everything Simon Bridges touch turns to shit. He’s become the anti-Midas.

    My God… the Nats have become an absolute train wreck. If Simon was smart, he would split from the National party and form his own party. Perhaps he could call it the Slightly Less Toxic Party… at least he wouldn’t have to worry constantly about being stabbed in the back.

    You talk about Simon being desperate but Winston (Mr 4% ) Peters will lose more of his depleted fan base if he votes to support unchecked immegration . Still he is happy to have drug dealers now and Shane will need someone to plant all his trees

    Martyn;

    Thanks for this link from Stuff.

    What the hell is Winston Peters up to?

    “National’s Foreign Affairs Spokesman Todd McClay asked Peters if he was aware the agreement made no distinction between legal and illegal migration and called for restrictions on freedom of speech and the media.”

    “Peters said he had studied the allegations, which had been made by some countries around the world and some people in a worldwide campaign, very carefully.
    “Both those allegations are demonstrably false,” he told the House.”

    Is he lying, does not know of any changed language or just politicking?
    Or is he selling us out?

    UPDATE: RED ALERT.!!

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/11/25/hypocritical-uk-govt-to-sign-un-migration-pact-despite-pledge-to-control-borders/

    “While debate on the UN migration pact rages worldwide, with a growing number of nations following the United States in withdrawing, the major deal has seen little discussion in the United Kingdom.”

    “Indeed, net migration to Britain still runs at over 270,000 a year, and former Tory chancellor George Osborne has suggested the party’s leadership never intended to honour the pledge.”

    “During drafting, British negotiators called for clauses recognising that it is the right and obligation of states to control their own borders, and that there should be a distinction between refugees and economic migrants, but they were not incorporated into the final text.

    While legal professionals have said the compact acts will create a legal framework that lawyers will interpret at the national level to advance mass migration, it has received little attention or debate in the United Kingdom, where the political space remains consumed by Brexit.”

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/11/22/world-follows-trumps-lead-nations-abandon-legal-framework-building-un-migration-pact/

    “President Trump said at the body’s New York headquarters in September: “Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens.”

    “Australian Prime Minister Scott Morris remarked Wednesday that the agreement is “inconsistent” with his nation’s best interest, and that the document “fails to adequately distinguish between people who enter Australia illegally and those who come to Australia the right way”, noting the frequent observation that the paper does not differentiate between legal and illegal migration.”

    “Poland’s Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski said in October that: “the draft of the agreement does not contain adequately strong guarantees of [nations’] sovereign right to decide who comes into their territory and [nor does it] distinguish legal and illegal migration”.
    “We want Poles to be safe in their country.”

    “The plan has been repeatedly defended in the mainstream media and in the halls of government with claims that the articles set out in the document are not legally binding, however expert legal opinion suggests that while the document is drafted as “non-binding”, it is written in a way that creates a legal framework.

    This, Belgian law professor Pierre d’Argent argues, will act like other UN compacts that have proceeded it will be used by lawyers to interpret the meaning of laws.
    He said: “…lawyers use this pact as a reference tool to try to guide them…This has already occurred in international or national jurisdictions to refer to instruments that are not legally binding.”

    “German law professor Matthias Herdegen came to a similar conclusion, as Breitbart London reported. Remarking that the UN compact occupied a “legal grey area”, it “gives the impression of [state] liability” and would raise the expectations of potential migrants in the third world, having the impact of potentially rising migration levels even if no laws actually changed.”

    “Switzerland is now postponing a decision on signing the deal, and the nation’s parliament will debate the issue in the coming weeks.”

    Which brings me to the reason behind my RED ALERT.

    If Switzerland can do it why can’t we?

    Why has there been no parliamentary debate or MSM coverage on a subject that quite obviously
    will have such an enormous impact on the daily lives of every New Zealander?

    For years to come, I might add. Forever?

    We can hardly cope with migrant numbers now on our infrastructure let alone an Open Boarder.

    Ratification occurs on December 11th.!!

    And now, on the eve of ratification we get this from RNZ. Listen to Espiners’ tactics.!!

    Are we about to see – like the signing of the TPPA post haste – the “Wolf in Sheeps Clothing”
    I warned about pre 2017 election, follow May in the UK, and sign away – “by increment and
    stealth” the lives of Nzer’s and generations to come, to a Globalist Agenda that does NOT
    have our good in mind.!!!

    I can’t believe that Winston would let her get away with (do) such a thing.

    No cheers.

    Hungary’s statement that the ‘non-binding’ Compact can, in fact, be ‘binding,’

    Calling it “a legalisation of mass migration,” the Dutch populist said: “It’s declaring migration a human right.”

    Await with baited breath.
