Incompetent Immigration Minister Must Go - Peters
15 November 2002
SHE MUST GO SAYS PETERS
New Zealand First has called for the immediate resignation of the Immigration Minister and for the Government to abandon its “insane” immigration policies following the TVNZ Assignment programme last night.
Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters said Lianne Dalziel was exposed publicly as incompetent and in total denial of the immigration crisis in New Zealand.
“This Minister has given repeated assurances that all is fine with immigration but the programme confirmed New Zealand First’s claims that the numbers are excessive and that there is widespread corruption.
“New Zealand cannot keep importing large numbers of people with different values and cultures. The example from Britain showed that such policies lead to social disruption and even violence.
“This politically correct Labour-led administration is taking New Zealand down a path to disaster. Everyone on the programme except Lianne Dalziel realised this so she has to go,” said Mr Peters.
