Libz To Coasters, Part 2: Dump the Hump!

"Damien O'Connor supports the job-destroying Resource Management Act, and the people of the West Coast should throw him off their protest march," suggested Libertarianz spokesman Richard McGrath today.

"Anyone who thinks O'Connor is on the side of West Coast businesses should read what he said last week," continued Dr McGrath. "He believes that unless we all embrace the RMA, the country will lapse back to what he describes as 'arbitrary political processes'.

"He implies that without the RMA to trample all over private property rights and suffocate industry, the country would lapse into anarchy. How on earth, then, did New Zealand manage to survive for over 150 years without this vile act of parliament?" Dr McGrath asked.

"If Damien O'Connor was interested in creating jobs and wealth for West Coasters, he'd be pushing for abolition of the RMA and the restoration of full property rights, on the West Coast and throughout this country," he added.

"Libertarianz are the only party that would dump the RMA if elected," McGrath concluded. "All the other political parties think the government should have absolute say over what people can and can't do on their own land. If Damien O'Connor thinks that way, the marchers heading to Wellington should send him packing. If he hasn't got the guts to resign and stand as an independent, West Coast voters should dump the hump."

It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!

Despite Christopher Luxon’s assurances to the contrary, there is no such thing as “settled law” in New Zealand. Apart from the six provisions that are constitutionally entrenched, legislation can always be amended or overturned by a simple majority vote within our single chamber of Parliament. Luxon’s repeated use of the term “settled law” has been particularly tone deaf, given that several of the US Supreme Court justices used that very same term during their confirmation hearings...
