Well. ¬†Whip me with a bottle cleaner and call me Nancy. ¬†How did Colin Craig ever expect to work with the National Party when his policies are¬†all over the show like a mad woman’s poo?
Isaac Davidson has the perplexing story
Chinese company Shanghai Pengxin has confirmed that it is aiming to buy a $70 million farm in the central North Island, which would be the second-largest foreign purchase of New Zealand land.
The company said this afternoon that its subsidiary Pure 100 Farm Limited had signed a sale and purchase agreement for Lochinver Station, near Taupo.
The sale is now pending approval from the Overseas Investment Office (OIO).
Chinese buyers interested in the Crafar farms, and needing OIO approval. ¬†Nothing new here. ¬†Good grief.
Earlier today, Conservative Party leader Colin Craig revealed the company’s plan to buy up more New Zealand land in a speech in Hastings.
He accused the OIO of keeping the deal secret until the election.
Speaking to a Grey Power meeting in Hastings this afternoon, Mr Craig said his party would block all substantial land sales to foreign buyers – a policy already proposed by New Zealand First, Labour and Greens.
What is the¬†most fascinating thing about Colin Craig is that he wants everyone to “stand for something“, suggesting that even if it is unpopular – if it is the right thing to do -, you should stick by your principles.
JUST the thing you were looking for in NZ Politics, yes?
Well, no sooner did National close the door on a dirty deal in East Coast bays and Craig started making overtures to the Labour Party.
Today, he’s starting to adopt left leaning policies as well.
What a fraud and a sell-out.
I realise a fair number of my readers identify with some of the original ideals behind the Conservative Party, but take it from me, better to find out now that Colin Craig is nothing but an ego driven loon that will do what it takes rather than later.
Of course, I did warn you all from the start, but it’s taken a while for the real beast to shine through.
