Peters Wary Of Labour Defined Values

Media Release

Peters Wary Of Labour Defined Values

“Parents should be gravely concerned about Labour’s proposal to introduce its own state defined values into the school curriculum,” said New Zealand First Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters.

He is responding to the Ministry of Education’s curriculum review where a comprehensive list of values to be taught in schools has been put together.

“We welcome our children being taught values of respect and honesty, but can we trust Labour to do the job? I think not,” said Mr Peters.

“Transsexual Labour MP Georgina Beyer’s Human Rights (Gender Identity) Amendment Bill on Labour’s agenda will outlaw discrimination against those who cross dress in the work place.

“Next we will have Priscilla Queen of the Desert in the classroom.

“A third term of unfettered Labour rule will have long lasting and dangerous consequences for the social fabric of New Zealand where we will continue to see Labour insidiously building its left wing gender bending politically correct agenda into our school curriculum,” concluded Mr Peters.
