Pol­i­tics of fair­ness

Waikato Times - - COMMENT&OPINION -

A P Oak­ley and Rod Wise ac­cuse Labour and the Greens of the pol­i­tics of envy (Waikato Times, Septem­ber 12). I say it is the pol­i­tics of fair­ness. Cap­i­tal­ists with a sense of fair­ness agree that the present sys­tem is un­fair to those with low in­comes. Gareth Mor­gan even set up a po­lit­i­cal party mainly to ad­dress this prob­lem. I will agree with A P Oak­ley and Rod Wise if, and only if they ad­mit to the pol­i­tics of greed.

they will just stop spend­ing and then we won’t have to worry about all of the growth in NZ be­cause it will all fade away and then we won’t have mas­sive short­ages of em­ploy­ment and the ben­e­fi­cia­ries and the 7% un­em­ployed will have more money in their pock­ets and will be hap­pier.

Come on NZ, why change some­thing that isn’t bro­ken?
