Will Don ''Neville Chamberlain'' Brash please speak up
Progressive MP Matt Robson wants to know whether the latest leader of the National Party will speak up for new New
Zealanders? Or will he continue to be deaf and dumb as immigrants are verbally abused by his potential coalition partner
“In an absurd taxpayer funded leaflet, NZ First falsely claims hundreds of thousands of Third World immigrants are
flooding New Zealand.
"NZ First continues to say it could enter a coalition with a Don Brash-led National Party, so we all want to hear loud
and clear what National’s leader has to say about immigration.
“Dr Brash’s deafening silence this week echoes the spinelessness of Neville Chamberlain who failed to stand up to racism
at a terrible eventual cost to Britain.
"If Dr Brash was a real leader, he would make a plain statement that inflammatory racial baiting would not be tolerated
in any government he was part of.
“Does Don Brash still want Winston Peters in his coalition after all that we’ve heard from NZ First this week,?” said
On Monday, I said I was sure all parties would condemn NZ First’s unseasonal attack on immigrants. So far, National’s
leader is the only one to remain silent.
