Guess which party is tough on youth crime? Go on, guess

The government is relying heavily on old studies from the United States, which do not have direct relevance to New Zealand, to raise the youth court age, says New Zealand First Social Development Spokesperson Darroch Ball.

“Social Development Minister Anne Tolley has provided New Zealand First with documents and reports that back her stand raising the court age to include 17-year-olds, and they should not have been used. Read more »

Question one: Are you happy with NZ immigration policy as it is now?

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 snapshot primarily for David Seymour as he had commented that the small changes ACT 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 one: Are you happy with NZ immigration policy as it is now?

Take the Whaleoil survey on Immigration

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.

The Swiss insist on cultural assimilation if you want to become a Swiss citizen

switzerland

David Seymour and John Key need to have a chat to someone in the Swiss government about immigration. Unlike the rest of Europe, Australia and New Zealand, the Swiss know how to protect their people and their culture. It turns out it’s not actually that difficult. All it takes is politicians prepared to draw a line in the sand: fit in or forget about becoming a citizen. It really is that simple. The Swiss value their culture and it is about time our New Zealand politicians stood up for ours.

If you want to be a Kiwi act like a Kiwi. Our culture is more important than yours. Our culture is the culture of New Zealand and you are a guest here. If you want to become one of us you need to assimilate to our culture just as we would have to assimilate to your culture if we lived in the country that you came from. Islamic countries have no difficulty whatsoever imposing their culture on immigrants. Why is it that we in the West are so squeamish and cowardly when it comes to expecting Muslim immigrants to assimilate into our wonderful democratic society? Why don’t we insist on equal rights for Muslim women inside our country? Why do we allow our Muslim immigrants’ religion to dictate to us how we eat, run our schools and our businesses?

GENEVA — In the latest move to deny citizenship to those who balk at Swiss culture, authorities rejected the naturalization application of two Muslim girls who refused to take school swimming lessons because boys were present.
