Hoskings' Patsy PM Questions Shameless
Letter to the Editor
Mike Hoskings interview of Helen Clark on breakfast television (6 Oct) was shameless. I have never heard a journalist ask so many patsy questions.
It seems Helen Clark is quite a fan of the United Nations. She was happy to attack Iraq - but only if the UN mandated it. She condemned Paul Holmes - for insulting the UN Secretary General. Now, after telling us that we have to replace the Privy Council (because we’re a sovereign state and can make our own decisions) she proposes changing our laws on smacking - because the UN tells us to. So much for being a sovereign state.
Clark’s socialist philosophy dictates that responsibility should be taken from families and vested in the state and likewise from free nation states and vested in the UN.
I think Sneaky Clarkie wants Kofi Annan’s job. But at what price to us? There was a lot of sense in the pre-Duynhoven law that MPs could not swear allegiance to foreign powers.
Healthy relationships between individual people and individual nations will guarantee us freedom and prosperity. World domination by socialists won’t.
