Worst Government in New Zealand’s History?

I haven’t always identified myself politically as a Conservative.

Indeed, for most of my early years, I was the worst kind of Lefty you could possibly imagine – the ‘Intellectual’ kind. I’m sure you’ve all most likely had the misfortune of meeting one at some stage. Possibly at a party somewhere and noted the smug self-righteous attitude.

My evolution towards conservatism was characterised through a desire to learn about things I had no understanding of, most notably how an economy functions and while I’m in no way an expert, I’m happy to say that I have a greater awareness and appreciation now. Well, it couldn’t be any worse than it once was anyway.

I still treasure friendships I made in my former political understanding, and have even made friendships since which I hope will endure well into the future. After all we’re all human. We all make mistakes. And we all need a hand sometimes.

But as someone who has a lived experience of Left-Wing mentalities, I have genuine real concerns regarding our current Government.

The social circles I once exclusively inhabited as a Lefty were characterised by two things: Sex and Drugs. I always felt very self-conscious and insecure in these environments as the dominant ethos was centred on popularity and being ‘cool’, two things I struggled with immensely.

Looking back on those days I now see that trying to find a deeper, more meaningful sense of oneself in an environment centred on narcissism and a nihilistic approach to life is the sort of cricket pitch an opening batsman truly dreads.

So surely it is no great leap of logic to assume that these behaviours and values, or lack thereof, are potential dominating factors in our current Coalition Government. I mean, after all, some people never grow up.

While moral decay is not entirely exclusive to the Left Wing mindset, it nevertheless seems to be a rather all-pervading characteristic.

One is reminded of the Clinton years in office, both as Governor and President, which were fueled by a seemingly never-ending supply of cocaine, lies and sexual misconduct.

Have we elected to office our very own brand of shallow and feckless miscreants? They remind me of a bunch of spoiled brats who are completely clueless as to the realities that many people deal with on a daily basis. Seemingly void of any sense of humility, self-awareness or the intelligence to not only listen but to admit when one is wrong. I’m sure there are exceptions to the rule within their ranks, however, these voices are most likely drowned out by the cringe-worthy virtue signalling and petty popularity seeking that I suspect rules the day. I dread to think of what goes on behind closed doors when the public isn’t around.

We already have examples of Coalition partners using expletives in their Tweets. A Finance Minister who deems it appropriate to publicly name private companies in his war on law-abiding landlords in order to obfuscate his own responsibilities. An ongoing desire by the Prime Minister to force 150 refugees onto the people of this country, refugees who may include child abusers and drug addicts. A Government who, on their very first day in the House weren’t even organised enough to have the numbers to elect a Speaker. And now we have been ‘informed’ that the Prime Minister may not even be able to perform the functions of her duties as she will soon be giving birth to a baby.

What a bloody shambles. We’re not far out of the gate and this crowd are already looking like a prize nag. What’s going to happen to our unemployment rate once the changes are made to the minimum wage? How will this affect Inflation?

The current Government of this nation is, in my opinion, fast shaping up to be one of the most unstable; unprofessional; irresponsible; economically ignorant and morally corrupt bunch of idiots we have ever voted into office. Hopefully, I am proved to be wrong.

And hey! Did we actually vote them in?

Perhaps the past weekend’s activities of Green Party List M.P. Golriz Ghahraman says it all. A currently serving Government MP, travelling to a protest against the actions of the very Government she is currently serving in, possibly using Government expenses to do so, and failing to see the hypocrisy of her own actions.

God help us all.

Buckle up folks, it’s going to be a rough ride.
