Ummmmm. What on earth is she doing?
National has a “moral obligation” to win the upcoming election, says deputy leader Nikki Kaye – and that’s why they chose the controversial front bench they did.
Ok, firstly – BULLSHIT!
The attempt here by Kaye is to claim the all white Cabinet was meritocracy, BUT IF that were true IF, then why was Nikki’s first attempt to answer this was to claim Paul Goldsmith was Māori???
The truth is far more banal than dreams of white supremacy however, remember this coup was triggered by terrified back benchers looking at the polls and realising they were about to be made unemployed. This desperation mixed with Muller’s misplaced tall man self belief and these wretches knifed each other to get high party list rankings.
It isn’t naked racism we see in this front bench, it’s naked selfishness.
For a Party with supporters who say things like this online…
…you would think National would see diversity as a necessary medicine to cure the deep seated racism of its rump voting base, but they didn’t decide to do that with this coup because they were all too busy saving themselves.
National may not be a racist Party, but they sure as Christ are a selfish one and listening to Kaye’s self serving nonsense that an all white front bench is a moral necessity is just intellectually embarrassing.
I believe National are headed for a 2002 level result. This is 2020, but National are voting like it’s still 1950.
