National are against our past "NZ business" historically
National are blaming Stuart Nash for declining NZ business’s, but we all witnessed the demise of many ‘iconic ‘NZ industries during the nine years of National’s “slash and burn’ policies.
Just look at the Woollen Carpeting industry, as it is now gone overseas owned by foreign interests?
All the woollen carpeting machinery was sold off to India and China after we saw National allowed the flood of cheap plastic toxic (nylon 6) carpeting to come over our borders and decimate our woollen mills.
Now if you want a woollen carpet to effectively insulate your homes, you will only get them from China or India now and that has ab negative effect on our farmers who are now being forced to sell wool at historically low prices as overseas companies are the ones buying our wool for their woollen carpeting mills to sell it back at high prices.
Secondly our iconic Fisher & Paykel whiteware appliances (fridges, washing machines, stoves and ovens) has been sold off as National allowed the importation of cheap Chinese inferior appliances to flood our market, and there are many more examples also if you care to look.
What was it that caused just last year the historic Dunedin Cadbury Chocolate Factory demise, and now Tip Top ice cream is going up for sale perhaps after you had allowed the foreign companies to dominate the NZ market again, like Streets ice-cream now taking over and Tip-Top signs coming down everywhere now.
Your stewardship of our economy was destructive and certainly not positive, with homeless and lack of rentals abound everywhere.
So please National Party, there is plenty of blame to go around and lots are there to blame you for ruining our iconic keyhole industries.
