Wellington Bureaucrats Face Red Tape Tie Up
While Wellington slept, Libertarianz activists were tying up government buildings with red tape to highlight that the aim of any new constitution should be to tie up government.
One hundred of this countries politically correct ‘elite’ meet in Parliament today and Saturday to discuss ‘Building a Constitution’. “It’s a joke!” says Libertarianz Leader Peter Cresswell speaking this morning from outside parliament buildings. “These establishment gravy train riders have no expertise beyond increasing ther own power. The aim of any decent constitution,” he says, “is to tie up government, but these people are meeting instead to discuss tying us up even further!”
“Government - properly - exists to protect individuals from the mob. Constitutions exist - properly - to protect individuals from the government. It is long past time that New Zealanders have needed such constitutional protection from their government, but the constitutional apartheid being proposed at this conference could make Kosovo look like Karori.”
Wake up New Zealand!
