Shun Authoritarian Green

"Ignore the hypocritical control-freak Kedgley" declared Libertarianz Leader and Tauranga Candidate Russell Watkins today in response to Sue Kedgley's call for people to turn off TVs for one week in protest at a lack of local programmes for children.

"New Zealanders should ignore this car-driving, cellphone-using, unproductive hypocrite who pontificates endlessly about what is wrong with the world, but refuses to use her own money to do anything to change it. She is a constant advocate of the initiation of force by the state"

"Kedgley thinks children watch too much TV, yet complains there isn't enough locally made programmes for them. Instead of using her own money to help set up a TV channel or to commission the programmes she wants, she wants to force broadcasters to do it - and intends to force the taxpayer to pay for it. "

"Most disgustingly, she doesn't like violence on television, yet she is one of Parliament's strongest advocates for mafia-like state force against business and against productive individuals undertaking peaceful activities. She likes to ban what she hates, make compulsory what she likes. and to steal from those who are productive - unlike herself"

Watkins concluded wit a call for all New Zealanders to ignore this power-hungry control-freak for the rest of the year, and "to tell her and her Green Party colleagues in November to collectively stop nannying us and f*** off."

It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!
