Dunedin South chooses Voight

14 April 2014

Dunedin South chooses Voight

Health practitioner Warren Voight has been selected as the Dunedin South electorate candidate for Democrats for Social Credit.

“As a candidate in this year’s General Election, I am excited to be representing Democrats for Social Credit and celebrating sixty years as a political party” Mr Voight told local members in Dunedin on Sunday night.

“The Democrats for Social Credit slogan encompasses what I stand for: ‘economy, equality, ecology’.

“I think people have had enough: enough indebtedness, enough inequality and poverty, and enough exploitation of our environment as a result of narrow ideologically-driven development policies. The Democrats for Social Credit Party has consistently held to policies promoting real economic reform as a basis of ensuring a more equal society.

“The lurching left to right pattern of rotating governments has resulted in New Zealand becoming increasingly indebted, unequal, and with an environment under threat due to short sighted policies - the end result of relying on failed the economic theories of last century.

“Blind faith in debt ridden fiscal reform policies based on interest bearing credit sourced from private lending institutions is certain to make things worse. Following that agenda is like hoping to dig one's way out of a hole.

Mr Voight said that he believes the Democrats for Social Credit Party has the policies to bring real change and improvement.

“Innovation and investment in cutting edge technologies will make New Zealand more self sufficient. Our sovereignty is under threat from proposed TPPA deals weighted heavily in favour of the USA corporates and spy agencies. We will ensure protection of our environment from exploitation and sale to foreign corporate interests.

“Such things are promised by others, but without the key which involves reducing control by private overseas banks of the money supply thereby reducing interest bearing debt, we will remain under influence of international financiers.

“Reserve Bank Credit lines must be utilised to ensure interest free or low interest money is spent into the economy to reduce the fiscal drag of interest bearing debt”.

Warren Voight is the Party’s Local Government Spokesman, and Broadcasting Spokesman.

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>

War: What’s To Commemorate?

Gordon Campbell in Werewolf: Is there anything that can be validly commemorated on this 100th anniversary of Gallipoli? Beyond, that is, a fleeting sense of empathy with the thousands of soldiers killed or wounded on April 25 1915 and in the months thereafter, until the whole thing was finally called off in December 1915.
