Keep Sex Out Of Politics Says New Zealand First

"Labour is showing its true colours by resorting to condoms to get the youth vote and further exposes Labour's plans to continue its perverted agenda," says New Zealand First Leader, Rt Hon Winston Peters.

This is in response to Young Labour's youth wing of the Labour Party who are handing out condoms with stickers on them that say 'be safe with Labour' and 'dont get screwed by National,” said Mr Peters.

“President of Young Labour's comments "its Young Labour's job to get youth interested in Politics and the condoms are a part of that, " is a serious insult to the intelligence of our youth population by correlating condoms with an increased youth interest in Politics.

“This assumes that our youth are mindless clones who don't have the brains to weigh up who they want to vote for this coming election and does nothing to raise the important issues facing our youth.

“It seems Labour's election agenda is obsessed with legalising gay marriages, legalising prostitution, and anything else that erodes social cohesion and traditional family values.

“Young people today face a far more complex and challenging social environment than past generations and are often pressured through the media by a multitude of stereotypes.

"The Labour government is not doing them any favours by entrenching and encouraging these stereotypes,” said Mr Peters.
