Anger’s cause

Auckland City Harbour News - - Letters - COLIN WHITE Block­house Bay

Af­ter read­ing Mr Cun­liffe’s let­ter on racism by Ki­wis I won­der if he has taken the time to un­der­stand some of the rea­sons for their anger.

Be­cause of gov­ern­ment poli­cies, thou­sands of fam­i­lies all over New Zealand have been bro­ken up by your ac­tions as thou­sands of Ki­wis have left th­ese shores for wage and liv­ing con­di­tions of a higher stan­dard. Your free trade deal, I un­der­stand, al­lows mi­grants from China to fill the po­si­tions left va­cant.

I would pre­fer my rel­a­tives who have gone over­seas to have stayed here.

You and the Na­tional Party are in agree­ment on this deal so as an ex-Labour voter I have, it ap­pears, nowhere to go.
