Are You?

Press Release 10/11/2016

Are You?

First there was Brexit where the silent majority voted Britain out of the EU and claimed the country back for the British. Last night the silent majority in America overturned the establishment by voting Donald Trump as their 45th President. This wave of discontent is sweeping the globe as more and more people vote for change. New Zealand is not isolated from this trend as more and more New Zealanders are voicing their opinions that change is needed to move this country forward.

The established political parties ie National, Labour, Greens, NZ First and United Future have ALL failed to respond to the wishes of the very people they were elected to represent. This lack of response has prompted a new political party the New Zealand Seniors Party who are demanding change.

We ask:

Are you – happy with the way our country is heading?

Are you – happy with the level of crime in this country and how our prison population is one of the highest per capita in the world?

Are you – happy that New Zealand is termed by the UN as one of the worst countries in the world for child abuse?

Are you – happy to sell of land and business to overseas investors when you yourself are unable to purchase your own home in this country?

Are you – content to live on a pittance of a pension when our politicians and government employees are paid such high salaries?

If your answer to those few questions listed above is NO then you are one of the silent majority who have the power to instigate change by casting your vote at next year’s General Election.

New Zealand Seniors Party act on behalf of all New Zealanders both young and old and offer a voice to the silent majority. Next year do you want more of the same or is it time for change – the decision is firmly in your hands.

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
