National’s Top 10 Ignores Moral Concerns


National’s Top 10 Ignores Moral Concerns

Christian Heritage NZ leader Ewen McQueen said today that voters concerned about moral issues should not waste their vote on the National Party. He pointed out that none of the top 10 priorities identified in National’s action plan were related in any way to rebuilding decent family-values back into New Zealand society. McQueen said,

“This action plan shows very clearly that the National Party is committed to inaction on the moral issues that so many New Zealanders are increasingly concerned about. There is no mention of any policies to affirm marriage, strengthen families or rebuild respect for the sanctity of human life. This is precisely why Parliament needs Christian Heritage NZ.”

The CHNZ leader also said that most New Zealanders knew that the country had serious problems with the breakdown of family life, and this was only going to be addressed by rebuilding decent moral values into society – not by tax cuts or any of the other items on National’s top 10 priorities list.

The Christian Heritage NZ leader said it was time for all New Zealanders concerned about moral issues to vote into Parliament a party that would actually do something about these issues.

Our universities are now asking for an exemption to the travel ban for their Chinese students, who would still, the universities assure us, be subjected to strict quarantine procedures upon arrival. Given how the inability of the university system to care for its own students on campus made world news last year, that promise may not do much to reduce the coronavirus fears among the wider New Zealand public.
