National voters – greedy and anti-environment ?

3 Comments 22 September 2014

I find it extraordinary that nearly half of NZ voted for National and now the left are calling them words like ‘greedy’ and ‘anti- environmental’ etc.

I  do not see middle and right of middle NZ as greedy and anti-environment.  Quite the opposite.  In fact environmental issues, caring or not, cover the whole political and economic  spectrum.  In my opinion caring for the environment is not ‘owned’ by any political group.

So those that sit left of centre please stop judging those to the right with labels such as ‘greedy’, ‘selfish’ and suggesting they care little for children or poverty – it’s a terrible generalization, arrogant and not true.

We have a left leaning Council and Red/Green Local Board.  Our environment out West is in a shocking condition and very little is given to the people of the West.

Instead of pointing your fingers at the majority it may be wiser to review the left and it’s policies.   May I suggest you look inward rather than being so judgmental about the centre right?

    These so called environmentalists are nothing of the sort, they are selfish, greedy and arrogant, they probably have never worked the land and have no appreciation of how an to care for the environment. Sensible development of land would enhance the surrounding environment and mitigate rural slums and wasteland which become homes to destructive vermin. The effect of fringe development would create the opposite effect to what the green element think, however this flies in the face of their envy and policies of jealousy. The right are not greedy and certainly considerate of the environment, more so than green brigade.
