Labour’s next campaign is against the Police; let’s see how that works out for them

Stuart Nash has been sending out emails following the format of their housing email, soliciting people who feel they have had a raw deal from Police.

Dear [REDACTED],

Every day I’m hearing more and more stories of Kiwis struggling to get help when they’ve been a victim of crime.

While the men and women of our police force do a brilliant job on the ground, the reality is that the police have been underfunded by $300 million over the past four years. National have just not given the police enough resources to do their jobs.

We’re hearing stories of police not turning up to crime scenes because they don’t have enough staff, of community police stations closing or losing resources, and councils using private security firms because they can’t rely on the police to do all the work required.

We need to shine a spotlight on these issues. One of the best ways we can do that is by learning more about the issues affecting people like you.

[REDACTED], will you take our short survey about police in New Zealand?

The issue isn’t about how our police officers are performing, but how National has systematically underfunded them to the point where they are compromised in their ability to keep our communities safe.

Labour will fund our police force properly. But before we’re back in Government, we need to make sure we get the word out about the impact of National’s underfunding.Click here to take our survey now.

Thanks,

Stuart Nash
Labour Police Spokesperson

As is usual, they are asked for their details and to complete a survey where one of the last questions asks if they are happy to speak with media.

They are looking for friends and relatives who hate cops too.

This is what worked for them over housing so we can expect, in a week or two, for media stories to start attacking Police, all pimped to them from the Labour party.

Here are some of their loaded questions from the survey:

Honest media would ask people who come to them with negative stories about the Police if they have spoken to Labour or completed the Labour party survey.

Dishonest media will just run the stories because they will see this as a valid hit job against the Police Minister Judith Collins.

Whatever Labour do with this survey you may be sure it will lead to a media and Labour party attack on Police.

But think about this for a minute: Labour want to eventually be in government. So far their spokespeople have attacked Housing NZ, and now it looks like they are planning on attacking Police. Do those spokespeople really think that this will help their relations with those departments should they ever become ministers?

What it does show is Labour’s continued reliance on technology and social media to drive political attacks. On top of that they will probably also release figures from this data massaged by the thoroughly nasty Rob Salmond, the same person who devised Labour’s attack on people with chinky-sounding names.

The general public, however, will see through this shameful attack by Labour on the Police. Expect it to backfire spectacularly for them, like every other stunt they have performed. Labour are showing, yet again, that they are anti-Police and pro-criminal. Do we really want them in charge?
