Claire Browning on the Mordoring of New Zealand

Middle Earth, as my colleague quipped: it’s like that’s what we’re aiming for, one massive hole in the ground. Our legal landscape is changing, with mining in view. It’s not just the EEZ, or the RMA, or the Crown Minerals Act - it’s all of them. The ground is shifting under resource management.
Piece by piece, the National government is rewriting laws that have built our environment. The Crown Minerals Bill completes another piece of the picture - it shows why promises made were false - but that Bill is only an example of the government’s wider work.
Read the rest of the article here, if you can stomach it.

I feel like we are a leaderless land.

Damn this is depressing.

Because we have an ethicless leader, that's why.
It's not a good look, but it comes as no surprise to me.

I think Shunda is correct - we don't have a leader. Instead, we have a manager.

robertguyton said...

Presently, it's 'mismanager'.

Others believe, 'misleader'.

Shunda barunda said...

Who's going to fill that spot then? the Greens have lost the plot and Labour...well...yeah.

Collin Craig? :)

Key can't be trusted with the role, Shunda - never could, only he managed to take in the gullible :-)
Your lack of confidence in any other person is odd. You can't envisage any New Zealander at all, capable of running the country? How cynical. You've bought into the 'John Key is Supreme' meme and now that his clay feet have been revealed you still hold that he is top dog and that all others are lesser beings.
You are still entranced, Shunda.

Why do you think I am still suffering from 'Key love'? Lord Keysus is not my savior.

I'm just pointing out that there appears to be a serious leadership vacuum at the moment.

I fear that we will 'require' another term of National before the arrogance of the left dissipates enough for the required leadership to emerge.

That's going to cost us a lot.
