Key has a dream: One day rich white old men will rule NZ again, let’s dump MMP
MMP may be back for debate
Electoral reform is back on the agenda as the Government prepares to reopen the debate on whether to dump MMP. A Government spokesman said yesterday that papers for consideration had gone to the Cabinet last week on a electoral referendum to be held either before or at the time of the next election. Justice Minister Simon Power is leading the debate. But the Government appears to be taking a softly-softly approach in the wake of criticism that it had turned its back on the results of the recent smacking referendum. It did not trumpet the news that officials had started laying the groundwork for another referendum, despite it being a key campaign pledge.
Rich white men in NZ, and all those who aspire to be them have hated MMP, having to listen to all those other voices around the table when they make decisions has led to a peculiar cultural backlash with white rich men complaining the world is against them and that the politically correct Nanny State dykeocracy has robbed them of their masculinity. Hence the desire to go back to a political system that saw the majority of Parliament ‘represented’ by rich white old men. Listening to people rail against MMP in favour for a system that only promotes the elites is hilarious.
National have fucked the Super City with an electoral system that favours the elites, (read Rudman this morning), racistly destroyed Maori hopes of representation (Tapu Misa does an incredible job talking about why equality matters in her column today) and now National are intending to do the same with the national electoral system. The genius of molesting democracy into one that only benefits rich white old men is that all those who aspire to have the affluence of rich white old men blindly go along with it not realizing that the old boys club won’t let you sit at the same table with them.
It is a brilliant move by the elites, and like sheep, NZers will blindly go to the slaughter. For those who think a wee bit more, the coming fight will be galvanizing, but remember the right wing want more than a referendum at 2011, Fran O’Sullivan wants the molestation to start now and Key was just on Breakfast suggesting it can be done now, in the exact same rushed way the Super City has been rammed through.
How is that change feeling NZ? You’re having your electoral systems molested to allow the rich white people National really represent to win forever! I’m almost delighted to see the excesses of power National and ACT are unleashing to the utter detriment of this country.
You made your bed NZ, I’m enjoying watching you lie in it.
