Peter Wakeman: Independent Candidate Mt Albert by-Election

Peter Wakeman: Independent Candidate Mount Albert by-Election

Former ACT, National, Democrat, Social credit, Green Party, Internet Party and Labour Party member

My Polices

1. Retirement at 55 years old – funded by a universal financial transaction tax set at .025 cents in the dollar (25cents per $100) (due to job losses due to automation and/or health issues.
2. Expand the IRD into a bank wholly owned and operated by the New Zealand Government with no transaction fees for private individuals.
3. Extend secondary schools into post school Institutes for learning trade and technical skills to enhance employment opportunities before leaving.
4. Runaway Climate Change means that we have to prioritise food habitats to help us cope with the real possibility of human extension. (At present we are no more active in this area than President Trump’s American intent to remove climate change from the debating table.)

It is nature that provides us with life and not the free market that sets the interest rates. Most money is created as debt and thus created from nowhere. So the current financial system is destroying nature. Gareth Morgan, of The Opportunities Party, and candidate Geoff Simmons, in my view, is not addressing the problem of private banks creating money which aids the demise of nature’s habitat that the he wants to preserve. This needs to change.
This by-election deserves to be more than an exercise of turning a list MP into and electorate MP to create another list MP. The Mount Albert by-election is on Saturday February 25th, 2017.
