Sack The Whole Race Relations Office

"The position of Race Relations Commissar is a highly paid politically correct position of parasitism that promotes the idea that race matters" announced Libertarianz Leader and Tauranga Candidate Russell Watkins today. "Nobody need replace Gregory Fortuin as Race Relations Commissar at all because none is needed," he says. "Don't just sack the current officer of apartheid - sack the whole damn office!"

"Race should be completely irrelevant to government,"says Watkins. "The biggest race problems are caused by this Labour/Alliance minority government taking every opportunity it can to specially fund and control activities of the races it wants votes from, such as Maori and Pacific Islanders. The latest funding for state-controlled Maori television and Pacific Island radio is a clear example" said Watkins.

Watkins concluded "Libertarianz call for the abolition of the Race Relations Commissioner and of Margaret Wilson's newly expanded fascist Human Wrongs Commissariat. In addition, and unlike every other political party in this country, Libertarianz would repeal all laws and eliminate all funding which grants privilege or denies rights to anyone based on their race."

"A vote for Libertarianz is truly a vote against racism. It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!
