Quiet Revolution in New Zealand.


Date 21 February 2008

Press Release
For Immediate Release. Quiet Revolution in New Zealand.

“What we are seeing is a quiet Revolution that will change the face of politics in New Zealand,” says Republicans Deputy Leader and Maungakiekie candidate Bevan Berg.

We are seeing a new generation of political parties being born in New Zealand that have one thing in common. They want the family back.

It is a peaceful uprising against the Clark government, and their PC lawmaking. This will not only bring Labours chickens home to roost, it is also going to seriously hurt two other parties. Labour’s clingons, NZ First and United Future.

In the Republicans New Start for Kiwis, The Family Restored is at the centre of our 5 Ways Forward election platform.

There is a salvo of political parties training their guns on Clark, another Prime Minister who will not go, and now Chairman Mike Williams is waving his resignation around.

“It is more than stormy waters for this once proud political party - Labour is a ship looking for a place to sink,” says Berg
