P, Pimps & Prostitutes

Family Party Conference

Saturday 17th May, Mangere


16 May 2008. The Family Party will be outlining policies to combat the P epidemic and the gang culture in South Auckland. The policies will be presented at the Family Party conference in Mangere tomorrow (Saturday 17th May) at the Nga Tapuwae Community Centre in Mangere.

“There’s no question that drug dealing and street prostitution are major concerns to South Auckland communities. They go hand in hand with the rising gang culture. Tomorrow I will outline how the Family Party aims to address these issues beyond the usual rhetoric,” says party leader Richard Lewis.

A former South Auckland police sergeant, Mr Lewis believes the Family Party package to address drug dealing and the gang culture will find a lot of favour with the electorate.

“We’ve done a heck of a lot of work listening to the people in the street and have a pretty good handle on what’s needed in the communities. It’s about giving them a voice that’s not drowned in the clutter of Parliament – it’s about putting families first and making a difference where the Labour-led Government has been found wanting,” he added.

Lives will be lost in the trade-off. Millions of Americans stand to lose access to the healthcare they need.

Spot the difference with New Zealand, where DHBs are under intense pressure to reduce deficits within a climate of chronic underfunding. More>>
