At last, National stands up

National has finally stood up to Liabour and drawn the line in the beltway sand. The EFB will be repealed upon their election. Some comments reflecting the mood.
  • a shambles and it was designed to "screw the scrum" in favour of Labour
  • The rights of hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders who want to participate no longer count
  • I have a message for the very out of touch Prime Minister of New Zealand: This bill cost her minister [former Justice Minister Mark Burton] his job ... this act will cost the Prime Minister her job in 2008.
  • for once in your lives recognise that you are not bigger than the people of New Zealand
  • What we are seeing here tonight is a bill driven by the paranoia of the Labour Party, not a paranoia about where the money comes from but a paranoia and a fear that they may be tipped out of Government at the next election
  • We won't indulge ourselves in the kind of behaviour we have seen by the Labour Party, we won't write self-serving legislation. We will consult. We will actually act in the best interests of New Zealand

The ultimate from Mr Key
I make this promise to New Zealanders: when Labour is gone at the end of 2008 the first thing National will do is repeal this legislation. It's gone
That's what we need, someone finally telling this corrupt government where to go. Election 2008 is now open for business.

Agree wholeheartedly. It was significant the Key opened the debate for National, whereas Labour rolled out Rick Barker - bizarre. Key left us in no doubt where National stands.

Do you blokes wander around with your ears all waxed up or something? John Key declared over three weeks ago that National would repeal the EFB.
