Some thoughts on the VRWC

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

After reading many of Labours missives over the past few days I get the distinct impression that they actually know f88l-all about almost everything including the so-called Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

Here are some extracts from various Labour press releases;

which programmes it will cut from education in order to fund another Business Roundtable policy – bulk funding of schools.

suspicious of National’s real intentions

from cuts to existing education spending

slash $350 million from elsewhere in the education sector will send shivers down the spines of school principals, teachers, parents and students alike.

or the full hidden Business Roundtable agenda will be implemented with the decimation of health, education and superannuation spending.

come clean on who is influencing National party policy, what they want and whether they paid for it

Get the picture….and that is from just 3 press releases. Futher it raises some serious questions about the left.

  1. Where do they get off thinking they have a monopoly on good ideas? I mean it is seriously arrogant for the left to assume that they are the font of all knowledge and only their ideas are the right ideas. It seems from their constant press releases that more money always equals better. The right however likes to focus on outputs not inputs. Like most business people the right wants to see that the capital is privding the best possible outcome and constantly searching for ways to improve. the left sees the answers as a “bigger engine”, forgetting the chassis and the wheels were provided from the carthorse days.
  2. Why do the left think the right want to slash and burn? I don’t get this one. It goes along with my comments above. It isn’t about slashing inputs but achieving better output. Duh!
  3. Why do the left think the right want to hurt New Zealand? and why would they do that anyway? I have always been struck by the lefts need to control what we think and the rights wish to let us run our own lives…and somehow the right are evil and the left knows best. if you are the lefty ask yourself this question Why would the Business Roundtable (or insert any other right wing noun) want to destroy New Zealand as labour says they will? Try to answer with sound logic, I know that will be tough to not resort to standard lefty form and say something totally usually like “So they can make a profit”. But really even if you do say that my reply would be What is wrong with that? Business needs to make a profit to survive, countries are little different. Cullen fails to see that, mainly because he is a closeted intellectual who has never run a business. Business borrow for infrastructure and use profits to pay it off, allowing them to expand beyond their current cashflow capabilities thereby growing the pie.
  4. What is wrong with an independent party providing input to policy? Enough said. the answer is obvious….Nothing!!
  5. Why is ok for Unions and academics to have policy input to Labour and not ok for business people, industry leaders and other academics to have input into National Policy? Same as above.

I for one am heartily sick of Labour carping on about hidden agendas and the VRWC thing. The right is not about destruction it is about freedom and building.

Get over it and debate the issues.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
