An Opinion by Rex Warwood
I don’t know about you, but for a long time I’ve had an uneasy feeling about our
political parties in New Zealand and how they have been behaving. I have come
to the conclusion there is no difference between Labour or National.
They are not running the country how we would like to see it run, they have been
pursuing globalist ideologies for decades, ignoring the wellbeing and prosperity
of the majority of those who put them in power -the people.
Every three years the politicians deceive the electorate. They pander for your
votes but and as soon as they are in office they make decisions and sign
international agreements that the people are not privy to. Those actions are never
part of the election campaign discussions.
Go back to 1984, to the sell-off of billions of dollars worth of New Zealand’s
strategic assets by the Fourth Labour Government. This was a hideous act of
which New Zealand has never recovered.
More recently we have had the so-called ‘Free Trade’ Trans-Pacific Partnership
Agreement (TPPA) which was planned in secret by the Government and was
only discovered through a leak.
John Key’s Government would have gone ahead and put another nail in New
Zealand’s coffin by selling out this country’s sovereignty, all without asking the
voters what they thought about it.
Then in December, 2018, Jacinda Ardern and her New Zealand First deputy,
Winston peters, signed the United Nations Global Compact for Migration,
allowing the UN to decide who comes into our country to reside. Just this year,
the Labour Coalition Government decided to open up New Zealand to more
migrants from Africa and the Middle East. These people who have no
commonality with our way of life, do not even need skills to contribute to our
economy as did the migrants of the past.
In short, Labour and national have never had a mandate to make these agreements
Why have we not been asked about these moves? Because the politicians know
we would never go along with them.
I don’t know about you but I definitely want to see a change the direction our
politicians are taking us. The people of the United States influenced that
country’s direction by voting in President Trump who has vowed to ‘drain the
swamp’; the people of Great Britain showed their disdain of a European
unelected dictatorship. They pulled away and Brexit became a reality earlier this
I am advocating that New Zealand ‘drains its swamp’, not by voting the
politicians out of power but by introducing a new system that will control them,
such as the successful Swiss-style, Binding Citizens Initiated Referenda whereby
the people can have regular referendums on major issues during the year.
The New Zealand people are very close to losing their sovereign rights and I am
reminded of a quote by Australian broadcaster, Alan Jones who has been feeling
the same. He was outspoken this week about China spreading the Wuhan
Coronavirus worldwide, and taking advantage of it by buying up, collapsed
Australian companies at bargain basement prices. Jones said: “It doesn’t matter
who runs the country if we don’t own it.”
And unless New Zealanders change their system of Government, they will not
have much say in their country’s future.
It is worth thinking about and I encourage everyone to research the benefits
of the Swiss-style of Government. It well could provide New Zealanders
with the opportunity to ensure politicians do not over-step the mark as they
have been doing for decades and provide a better future for our children.
We owe them that much.
The opportunity will come with the 2020 General Elections in September this
