A new 1News Colmar Brunton poll has found a majority of respondents want New Zealand’s official name to remain the same.
The poll found 58 per cent of people prefer the status quo, while 41 per cent want Aotearoa in the mix, 1 News reports.
Of that 41 per cent, just 9 per cent want Aotearoa to replace New Zealand entirely, while 31 per cent voted for a double-barrelled official moniker – Aotearoa New Zealand.
Firstly it’s wonderful that Aotearoa NZ has such a large support, that’s positive and we should just do it so we can stop the identity politics Left from holding it up as a meaningful response to the problems we face because the issue with the modern woke Left is that all they are good for is virtue signals.
As economic anxiety builds for the working classes in NZ, look at the NZ political left’s response.
- Gerrymandering the Sexual assault laws so that any man accused of rape is convicted.
- Climate change emergency declaration that doesn’t do anything.
- Strangling off free speech with a blasphemy law and criminalizing the misuse of pronouns.
- Ending Gay Conversion therapy that proponents can’t quantify.
- Critical Racism theory in 0range Tamariki.
For the 190000 children in poverty, 24000 on emergency housing wait lists and generations locked out of home ownership, the NZ Left’s response is woke wankery.
Rather than focus on jobs, houses and poverty (because they are hard) we get middle class virtue signals.
Thanks to middle class identity politics, the Left have spent more energy since 2016 on fighting heteronormative white cis male patriarchy than capitalism so give them the country name change and then force the Left to actually do something on the neoliberal economic hegemony.
Hungry children and the homeless can’t eat or live in a country name change.
