Rajen’s “Ethnic New Zealanders deserve a fair go”

Good to see some output from Rajen Prasad – one of New Zealand’s most inactive politicians according to Pinko’s stats.

It is also good to see that Rajen is concerned that

“ethnic New Zealanders continue to face enormous barriers in the job market and in gaining access to basic public services – a situation that must be addressed.”

“there are barriers to people of different ethnicities getting the same opportunities and the same outcomes as other New Zealanders,”

Obviously Mr Prasad will be supporting Louisa Wall’s marriage equality bill.  Many ‘ethnic’ gay and lesbian New Zealanders are ‘twice blessed’ and face “enormous barriers”.  This bill sends a message that they aren’t second class citizens and can have access to marriage – surely Rajen would be all for that?

Being an “ethnic MP” is not just about representing community interests, but it is also about education and demonstrating a bit of  leadership.

    Yes, it’s tough out there for Scottish & Irish New Zealanders. I’m pleased to see someone speaking up on their behalf.

      No Botti, you see “ethnic” is political speak for “non-white”
      I’m sure you knew that already

    “Ethnic New Zealanders”? Oh my Lord.
    This bloke’s like an appendix, useless most of the time, and dangerous when he does anything

    Being an ethnic New Zealander never stopped Rajen getting his nose in the trough.

    Horseshit cannot get a job? So that is because they are ethnic, not because they do not have the right qualifications or experience? Or maybe the economy is in a slump & Employers can pick & choose?
    Trouble gaining access to basic public services? Like what? Riding the bus? Going to the Doctor, showing up at A&E? Getting Legal Aid? What a crock of shit this is. How about this muppet show some form of evidence & proof of his claims instead of whining in the press. “It’s not my fault everyone is racist” Yeah right.

    I recommend that Pathetic Prasad be appointed as Minister of Ethnic Affairs in the historic Sheep Shearer’s cocktail coalition of 2014……I don’t know where Labour picks these elements from….

      They have to have one of each, that’s “diversity” for ya. Never mind if they are fucking hopless.
