Fresh from his attempt to alienate the female vote by being equivocal on if a National Government would move to restrict access to abortions yesterday Christopher Luxon compounded things by purporting to speak for all women.
He declared that National is a party for women but then spoke for them rather than letting them speak for themselves.
From One News:
Women are most concerned at the moment around the cost of living crisis and where this country’s going. They’re deeply concerned about our health system that’s falling apart. They’re deeply concerned about an education system with poor attendance and academic achievement, and they’re deeply concerned about rising crime and gang violence.
The sensitivity is appalling. I cannot think of a comment by the leader of the opposition that has caused more derision since my old friend mucked up in saying that he was sorry for being a man.
But it was there to see. National which last election lost most of its liberal female MPs and whose current caucus is only a third female has a male leader who wants to speak for all women.
Twitter has had a field day.
1/3rd of your caucus is women & you think women in NZ are murderers

My husband asked me what I'd like for my birthday. I said he needed to ask Christopher Luxon because he knows what women want better than I do.

This has been a bad week for National. May it be the first of many.
