Reader Opinion: George Hawkins Will Be Remembered
George Hawkins Will Be Remembered
National MP Tony Ryall is right, George Hawkins will go down as the Police Minister who let street crime get out of control in Auckland.
Bob Harvey's announcement that Waitakere is looking at council run policing is an act of desparation born out of frustration at the Labour-Socialist mismanagement of our police force.
I cannot believe that after raking in one $1.5 billion more in taxation than they actually need, the government cannot afford to pay for a few more police officers to cope with the methamphetamine epidemic and the explosion in the number of burglaries that plague our streets.
Clark's bleeding liberal approach, pussyfooting around the issue, has done absolutely nothing in the four years she have been in power to make our community safe.
It's time for a change. Only a National / Act coalition will deliver the Law and Order that our Community demands and that those signing the Treaty of Waitangi envisaged.
