Putting an end to political correctness

Putting an end to political correctness

National Party Political Correctness Eradicator Wayne Mapp today restates his views on stamping out political correctness in public institutions.

"There needs to be a clear political programme to reverse it; to remove the viewpoints and language of the politically correct from the institutions of government. There needs to be a commonsense strategy that deals with the central issue: what to do about those state institutions that foster the ideas of political correctness," says Dr Mapp.

"The minority capture of public institutions by the politically correct is a basic cause of people losing faith in the institutions of government. Removing the power of the politically correct means removing their institutional and legislative base.

"New Zealanders expect their pubic institutions to fairly reflect the values that underpin our country. This is not the case under Labour.

"The malicious comments targeted toward me by Dr Cullen are designed merely to deflect public attention away from six years of insidious Labour-led social engineering.

"My challenge is to undo the actions of the Labour Government which have caused a crisis of trust towards our public institutions," says Dr Mapp.
