National's List Ranking, Ctd – Congratulations Nikki Kaye

One of the most noticeable features of the list is the ascent of Nikki Kaye from 58 last time to 33 this time.

I’m not a fan of Nikki’s politics as she is a sopping wet liberal who likes spending other peoples money on pet projects. What I do like about Nikki is that she is the one member of caucus who has been willing to take a public stand against National policies, and dissent against the group think imposed from the top.

Congratulations Nikki, keep up the good work inside caucus and don’t be afraid to speak your mind when all others around you are silent. And all you others – National’s internal suppression of dissent has weakened the political debate in New Zealand. You need to speak your minds and not just accept you will be told what you can and can’t say and do. Individually I know many of you, and know you are talented, intelligent people and it is time to start showing this.

    No doubt why she got promoted. The Socialist Nats love that kind of thing as much as Labour.

    Where’s NZ’s Sarah Palin?

    Sarah Palin- “Confront The Corrupt Cronyist Permanent Political Class”

    • That’s a trick question, right?

      The closest NZ has ever come to a woman as politically powerful than Gov. Palin is now running the NZ Centre for Political Research.

    Congratulations Jonathan Young .. Yeah Right…. New Plymouth before the new list had a strategy choice.. if they voted Jonathan Young they got two MPs.. Jonathan Young and Andrew Little placed 15 on the Labour Party list. Now with Jonathan Young up 21 places from 66 – 45 that strategy choice has gone. Now if New Plymouth vote or not for either Jonathan Young or Andrew Little they will still get them on the list. So why even vote for them. In my opioion Jonathan Young and all MPs and candidates running for constituent seats should not be on their party lists… FULL STOP. If an electorate like New Plymouth chooses not to vote for one or two of the main party candidates and get them anyway.. It is not democracy or choice it is just bullshit. Damed if they do damed if they don’t. New Plymouth strategically should now vote instead for the Green or Independent candidate and get three MPs.
