The Nats show some spine

Te News: "a blow for democracy"

Excellent news. At last a move in the right direction on stopping the welfare state.

The Government has vetoed a Labour Party bill which would have extended paid parental leave from 18 weeks to 26 weeks

Pity the Nats do not show spine on other matters like ditching Working for Welfare.

Which is why - more than ever, we need an NZIP just like England needed UKIP!

We don't need to stop "working for welfare" we need to end welfare.
We don't need more charter schools --- we need no state schools.
We don't need more money for hospitals --- we need no state hospitals!

And how the hell is "not increasing paid patently leave" stopping anything.

ending paid parental leave; repealing the holidays act and the shop trading act and ACC and Worksafe NZ - that's stopping something.

Keeping 18 weeks of bludger parent leave is not stopping anything at all
