The National Party list is as it ever was – far too many white men with old-hat ideas.
Apparently it’s that they’re “so democratic” that more than half the population can’t get good representation. Methinks there’s a flaw in their democracy.
When their apologisers run out the merit argument you need only ask whether white men are so much more able that they deserve over-representation…
So they’ll stay with 3 times as many men as women, and a faulty white balance that doesn’t reflect modern Aotearoa.
And they’ll continue to represent the old boys’ network they always have.
Your choice New Zealand.
