Libz Gag at Expected New GG Appointment

Libertarianz Deputy Leader Richard McGrath says instead of appointing Sylvia Cartwright as the new GG, we should instead sever formal links with the dysfunctional and inbred part-English Royal family. "Let us not waste this opportunity to transform NZ into a constitutional republic,” opines McGrath. “Ms Cartwright should not merely the latest local incarnation of these double-recessive chinless wonders.”

Dr McGrath is in any case scathing of what has been touted as Ms Cartwright’ s achievements. "She has been hailed for her hand in creating the office of the Health & Disability Commissioner, and for the Code of Patient Rights. The first of these is just another bureaucratic black hole for tax dollars - a blunt instrument with which to beat doctors and others in the health industry – while the second is simply a fraudulent, bogus nonsense."

Libertarianz want the office of governor-general abolished and constitutional restraints imposed on government to protect the individual liberty of all New Zealanders.
