Andrew Little Promotes the Nanny State

Arts, Travel & Lifestyle blogger David “Pinko” Farrar has interrupted his hectic travel schedule to point out that Andrew Little has decided to continue promoting the Nanny State.

Stuff reports:

Labour leader  labelled the review “flakey”.

Police needed time to investigate the circumstances of each accident, before leaping to any conclusions, he said.

“[For Woodhouse] to go onto a talk-back show and get roasted and decide you are going to do something then it looks, frankly, just a little bit flakey to me,” Little said.

“If there is a debate about whether there should be a more varied range of speed limits – some open roads can accommodate 110km per hour and some can’t – that is a separate debate and we should have that at some point.

“But I am a little bit uncomfortable about this climbing into the police for enforcing the speed limits.”

Little backed police, saying he saw no problem in  “sending a signal when you know that there are peak travel times, saying that you are going to strictly enforce the law.”

So Labour’s policy is that you should be ticketed for driving at 101km/hr in a 100 km/hr zone if it is a holiday period!

This is going to be a big problem for Labour and Little.

All voters are hearing is the same old Nanny State message from Labour.

Little has done nothing to tell middle New Zealand he understands them, and their issues, and they should start listening to him.

Until he does the left are deluded if they think they can beat John Key with the policy direction that New Zealand voted out in 2008.

If Little was smart he would have been calling for a review before it happened, and saying that the blokes in the boozer in New Plymouth were all pissed off with the police for having such a silly enforcement policy.
