I hope this post does not dissuade him. But I doubt that Brian Tamaki reads the Standard. And I hope he gets together a party and runs for Parliament next year. Because the MMP system allows extremist groups to gather together small groups of people and then consign their votes to irrelevancy.
From the Herald:
Destiny Church leader Brian Tamaki will tomorrow launch a political party after weighing up a move into politics for “a number of months”.
In a statement, he invited media to his church in Auckland to be informed as to what the party would look like.
“This is not a decision which we have undertaken lightly,” he said.
But because of an “escalating tide of poor decision-making” and the “eroding of New Zealand values by politicians – “we feel that we have had no choice but to stand up for the ever-growing silent majority of regular New Zealanders who are becoming more and more fed up and sick of the spin.”
It is not clear what these New Zealand values that he talks about are.
But he has complained about how he had been politically gang raped by the Government because it had refused to fund his man up programme, even though he had not actually applied for funding. And he threatened prison riots yet expected the Government to let him into prisons and fund him to do so.
To the 2% of the population who think Brian is onto a good thing can I urge you to support him and vote for him.
And to Alfred Ngaro I think I have found your soul mate.
