TROOPS FOR IRAQ
I support the extended tours of duty for our troops in Iraq.
Surely it is better to sort out Isis and the problems in the Middle East there, than bring more refugees here, from that region.
There has been much criticism about poverty, housing etc in New Zealand by the media, but you can’t have it both ways!
Bringing in more refugees won’t help that problem, and if it’s true that only around 50 per cent ever get work when they have been here for a while, that is a worry in itself. That is one way to end up with some form of radicalisation.
I have noted that Iain LeesGalloway has not commented on Labour policy to bring back our troops if the Government happens to change next year.
Funny that. Is it because Palmerston North has a strong association with the military at Linton and Ohakea?
Is the policy an embarrassment to him?
