Fresh from announcing an infrastructure budget they didn’t bother costing, the crazy just gets crazier from National…
Judith Collins is keen to see Kiwis returning home to New Zealand charged $3000 for their managed self-isolation or quarantine.
The National Party will announce the policy on Sunday to charge all New Zealanders entering the country the fee – around three quarters of the total cost – should the party be elected in September.
…backpackers, students and those on holiday won’t have $3000 to pay to come home on top of all the insane prices now being charged for flights!
National also intends to extend this to the 501 prisoners being returned to NZ from Australia!
I can’t imagine a more counterproductive policy! Returning 501s being forced back to NZ under compulsion will all have great credit ratings and a $3000 debt will cement them into the world of crime!
It’s like Judith and Gerry want them to transition immediately into organised crime!
So this is a message to every New Zealander living overseas trying to get home – the National Party will charge you!
Make sure you are enrolled and vote overseas or else Judith and her Blue Stormtroopers will lock you out and leave you to the plague.
Don’t say you weren’t warned!
