National Police plan targets South Auckland

One in two new police off to South Auckland under National’s planOne in every two police recruits will have to be sent to South Auckland under National’s plan to put 300 new officers into the crime hotspot. Labour says this will leave the rest of the country saying, “What about us?” National… [NZ Herald Politics]

Labour through mad Police Minister Annette “Full Moon” King reckons that it is better to let South Aucklanders continue to suffer under Labour’s policing plan than to follow National’s plan to send in the troops.

Labour clearly reckons that South Auckland voters are too dumb to vote for anyone but Labour so they can’t be stuffed reducing the crime and gangs that beset their loyal voters.

National though sees the benefit of ridding these under siege communities of the thugs that are dogging them.

    “Labour clearly reckons that South Auckland voters are too dumb to vote for anyone but Labour”

    And Labour might just be right about that. I accidentally listened to Radio Live talkback and reasons proffered for voting Labour by half-witted callers ranged from Clark being a woman through to National being just for the “bosses”. No one suggested that red is a pretty colour, but it wouldn’t surprise me if that was enough for some of these people.

    The talkback was so intellectually shallow that I seriously think that these people should not be permitted the vote.
