Libz Leader Takes On Fitzsimons

The first salvo in his bid to oust Jeanette Fitzsimons from the Coromandel seat is being fired by Libertarianz leader Peter Cresswell on Saturday night in Thames. "Coromandel and the Hauraki Plains deserve better representation than the luddite authoritarianism Fitzsimons represents," he says.

"It needs to be said," he says, "that almost without exception she stands for everything backward, anti-industrial, and flat wrong—and no-one else appears willing to confront that. Her opposition to a new Kopu Bridge; her silence over the delays to the exciting Whitianga Waterways project; her support for the gutting of New Zealand’s defence forces; and her continuing campaign to raise petrol prices by levying carbon taxes at the petrol pump--all indicate her view that initiative and enterprise be squashed."

Peter says by contrast his party would "shred the Resource Management Act, which is an affront to every property owner; scrap the Treaty of Waitangi, which is promoting rampant apartheid; and agitate for government to do its proper job—defending the country. Our aim is to get politicians out of your way, and out of your pocket, so you can be free to get on with your own life unimpeded."

He begins his campaign to oust Fitzsimons with a meeting at the Thames Junior Rugby Rooms this Saturday 31st, at 7pm, a venue he says was chosen to be close enough to Jeanette’s eco-residence to allow her to join the fun!
