John Key is hell bent on carving up our most pristine National Parks for mining. No matter what.
The areas most at risk are Kahurangi and Coromandel (rumour has it that Aspiring is a decoy to soften the blow). Well, these are amazing areas that do not derserve to be destroyed at the whims of a seat warming Prime Minister.
Our pristine conservation areas are the heritage of ALL KIWIS. We are all entitled to have our say on their future. It’s nothing less than immoral for the PM to ignore Kiwis for the sake of wealthy foreign mining interests.
The biggest hypocrisy of all is that John Key is the Minister of Tourism.
You’ve got to wonder. Is this potential incredibly unpopular policy being implemented because “sexy coal” Brownlee is controlling cabinet, or does Key owe someone in the mining industry a favour?
