To the those voting ACT or NZF or National this year because you are worried about co-governance.
I have a secret for you.
You have been co-governed by the richest 1% for decades.
That 1%? Their lawyers and lobbyists fill up the select committee appearances, they trade donations for policy, they throw the exclusive events where they get to have more words with decision makers in five minutes than you’ll have in your life.
The co-governance of the 1%?
That’s why you pay more tax than they do.
It’s why your electricity and food is so expensive and their shareholder profits are so good.
It’s why there’s no money to fix your roads full of potholes, your leaky waterpipes and the sewerage washing up on your beach.
It’s why you get paid so much less that you would in Australia and why you are so much easier to fire.
It’s why we manage inflation by increasing your mortgage and rents and not by touching the profits made by the speculators and price gougers that create the inflation in the first place.
In short, if you are willing to suffer all this because you “don’t like the Maoris getting too big for their boots” then you have let them use your racism to make a fool of you. Well done.
