    NZ Election

    5 days to go, just wondering which party NZers here on CW will be voting for. Vote away! No need to post saying which one you voted for if you don't want to. Greens for me.

    Christian Heritage had Graham Capill, the convicted paedophile, as their leader for about two decades and the only alternative Christian party is Destiny New Zealand, and the supporters of which looked frighteningly like a Nazi rally in their anti-Civil Union march a while back. Destiny really does scare me.

    I think its their formal dress code and mass orderliness which scares a lotta people? because there policies make a lot of sense.

    That's fair enough I guess. I find their anti-homosexuality policies a bit unfair and bigoted, I believe that it shouldn't be our business what people do in their private lives (there's another thread discussing that though!), if I'm not wrong they encourage children to abstain from sex before marriage, which again I think is interfering in others' affairs. And there's also what I see as unfair manipulation by that Church with the large donations the people (often poor, vulnerable members of the population) are required to make, seemingly direct into Brian Tamaki's pocket (and then there's the fact that Tamaki rates himself as 3rd behind God and Jesus). I may be misjudging them though.

    And I don't mean to discourage you at all, just justifying why they frighten me a bit.

    I'm still not sure who I'll vote for. None of the election campaign has impressed me too much, with all the empty promises and blatant lies going round. It'll probably be either Labour or the Greens for me, 'cause even though I'm not the biggest fan of Helen Clark I reckon she's a better PM than what Don Brash would be (the no student interest policy helps too ). The Greens have got some good policies too but I really don't agree with the anti-smacking bill put forward by one of their MPs (can't remember which one).

    I know that I definately won't be voting for National, Act or Scary Religious Parties either. Rodney Hide gave a presentation in the Engineering school a couple of weeks ago and while I didn't go, my brother did and he said he had no idea what he was talking about. Mind you, how many politicians do?

    There's a religious fundamentalist party in NZ with a formal dress code?

    Hardly a shock it reminds people of the Nazis then!

    Anyway, if I was in NZ I would probably vote Labour or the Greens. I like Helen Clark quite a lot.

    Yeah Helen's alright, but some of her Ministers are a tad incompetent, so my reasoning for voting Green is that if they win enough seats they can perhaps have a few cabinet seats as part of the coalition agreement. And also the Greens' policies appeal to me. Labour has an awesome student loans policy though, I'd much rather vote for that and relieve a problem that has been known to occasionally drive people to suicide than for the selfish bribery of tax cuts offered by National.

    And sorry Sir Redman, should have put in a don't know option, knew there was something I'd forgotten!

    Saw in the paper a while back someone had put a picture of Mr Burns over Don Brash's portrait on a billboard, fantastic stuff.

    To be honest we could do with a change in government.. so we can realize how much labour meant to us.. lol.. but then again i want to benefit from the no interest on student loans from labour..
