New Zealand First Party

New Zealand First on immigration and the refugee quota

I contacted National, Labour, Act, The Maori Party, NZ First, the Greens, the Opportunities Party, the Conservatives and United Future to ask them all three questions. Five parties responded to my questions and I published their responses in full and un-edited. My attempts to get a response from New Zealand First were unsuccessful so I have used their immigration policy as published on their website to find the answers to the questions I asked the other parties.

Question:

The perception of many of our readers is that left-of-centre political parties prefer immigrants from low socio-economic countries who are highly dependent on the state and poorly educated because immigrants like that will naturally vote for the left-of-centre parties who allowed them in. Which immigrants get priority under New Zealand First’s  policy and why?

Answer: 

New Zealand First is committed to a rigorous and strictly applied immigration policy that serves New Zealand’s interests. Immigration should not be used as a source of cheap labour to undermine New Zealanders’ pay and conditions…

New Zealand First will strengthen Immigration New Zealand to give it the capacity to apply immigration policy effectively.

E Tu Union happy that Solid Energy will be kept in the family

15 Nelson Mail 23 February 2013 Solid Energy

The Labour Party is not happy about the sale of Solid Energy.

The liquidation of Solid Energy is a sad indictment of Government incompetence, which has destroyed the once valuable company…

-Labour Party Press release

The New Zealand First Party is happy on the one hand but not so happy on the other.

The sale of Solid Energy coal mines to a consortium and two private companies shows the government was wrong to sell the state coal miner…

“It’s heartening that New Zealand interests have bought some of the mines…

Question seven: If ACT, NZ First or National made strong changes to immigration policy that you liked, would that be enough to retain or gain your vote next election?

immigration1

My motivation for creating a survey on immigration was to get an accurate snapshot of what a  Conservative/ Libertarian voter  thinks about immigration in New Zealand. I wanted this snap shot  primarily for David Seymour  as he commented that the small changes Act had proposed for immigration did not gain any support from this blog and resulted in a lot of negativity from the media.

Winston Peters of course has always been vocal about immigration, I hope this survey gives him some insight on what our real concerns about immigration are. Are we anti-immigration? Or do we think immigration is a good thing?

John Key likes to implement policies that will be popular with voters so he too should find this survey useful.I think he will be surprised at what it shows.

Due to our large audience we easily surveyed over one thousand voters in less than a day. This survey is not of the general population but of a specific conservative/libertarian audience. I gave two yes options and two no options for every  question.

Here are the results for question seven: If the Act Party, NZ First or the National Party made strong changes to immigration that you liked would that be a policy popular enough to retain or gain your vote next election?

How do our political parties’ immigration policies compare?

Immigration policies from all conservative political parties are listed below with links to their policy details at the end. I have also included non-conservative parties so that you can compare.

To help with this process I have summarised their policies. It is interesting to me that the Green party have much harsher guidelines and rules for migrants who bring money to New Zealand than they do for migrants who bring nothing but themselves. ACT on the other hand want to encourage migrant investors as do National. Surprisingly though, National have no policy details regarding NZ values/culture, citizenship, residency or NZ laws with regard to migrants.

Take the Whaleoil survey on Immigration

immigration1

I have created a survey on immigration so that Whaleoil readers can tell our politicians what it is that they want. David Seymour, John Key and Winston Peters need to know what it is that conservative / libertarian voters like us want. This is your opportunity to tell them. I will discuss the results in another post.

This survey allows comments of up to a paragraph in length.

Face of the day

New MP Ria Bond spoke of a tough upbringing: ‘From out of that rose strength, it rose courage, it gave me character, at times it caused me tears.’ Photo / supplied to NZ Herald

…NZ First list MP Ria Bond has delivered a heart-felt maiden speech to Parliament, in which she talked about a “traumatic” upbringing.

“I was three years old when I was first removed from my family and put into a foster home…I spent five [periods] of my childhood in a foster home,” Ms Bond said. “Whilst the world was shocked with the movie Once Were Warriors, I was living it. From out of that rose strength, it rose courage, it gave me character, at times it caused me tears.”

There was also a stubbornness to, “one day stand in this house as a member of parliament and look at how we can protect the children of the future.”

He lied again!

It seems that Winston Raymond Peters, 63, Member of Parliament of no fixed abode is a pthological and compulsive liar. When faced with a question it appears that his first response is to lie.

The dogged Phil Kitchin, following his usual method of destruction of liars has delivered yet another cut in his death of a 1000 cuts political assassination of WRP, 63, MOPONFA.

Mr Peters has told Parliament that he “had to carry the can” for legal expenses incurred – but The Dominion Post has obtained copies of bills that show taxpayers paid nearly $24,000. The bills show Mr Peters’ lawyer, Brian Henry, was paid the money by Parliamentary Service for Winebox legal advice.

The Winebox papers detailed a complex Cook Islands tax scheme used by prominent New Zealand businessmen to reduce tax liabilities.

The bills were paid by the taxpayer-funded agency, which administers parliamentary business, eight months after a commission of inquiry was set up to investigate Mr Peters’ allegations that the Serious Fraud Office and Inland Revenue acted unlawfully or incompetently.

They are for services that included “researching into the Winebox”, obtaining copies of transcripts of evidence, “consulting re media briefing of the legal position of Sir Ronald Davison [the counsel assisting the Winebox inquiry]”, “preparation of media package in respect of events in the House of Representatives”, and advice on a Winebox select committee.

Once again WRP, 63, MOPONFA has been caught out in a lie and once again it is before the parliament that he told the lie. hen again in the mind of a man who can’t lie straight in bed he probably thinks that parliamentary services money is his personal bank account to raid at will.

Remember the prick still hasn’t paid back the money he nicked at the last election. Brian Henry is also in a spot of bother as his testimony before the Privileges Committee is now suspect as it conflicts with the direct evidence that Phil Kitchin has uncovered.

No doubt more allegations will arise. Helen Clark will have to sack WRP, 63, MOPONFA as the damage is mounting against her and the Labour Party through her determined yet strange unflinching support of WRP, 63, MOPONFA.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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