Key and Bennett both know that National party's stupid welfare reforms that are nothing more than an attempt to force people to take on any job for any pay. in effect a return to the working conditions of the early nineteenth century. claiming that too many families are welfare dependent  and need to be sent to work instead of stating the fact that there are not enough jobs (good jobs that with guaranteed hours and living wages) is effectively a clue to the national party's true intentions yes they want to create jobs but these jobs will be casualised low wage jobs with most employees working through labour hire company's. national support anything that is good for the business elite allowing each corporation to take as larger cut of the profit as possible while workers are exploited. in order to see where New Zealand is going under the National party you only have to look to Asia, plenty of work but low wages and poverty, and to the early days of the industrial revolution. conditions like these are not the sort that we want for our future. the "Brighter Future" is a lie and all 51 National party MP's (including Banks and Dunne) are liars.

Why I don't trust the National party
many people both at the 2008 and 2011 elections voted for John Key and the National part with the belief that the government run by the above would be moderate and not make any major changes except for helping New Zealand out of the "recession"   in my opinion the actual outcome has been about as far removed from what the voters actually wanted as you can possibly get John Key will say something (usually a lie) the voters will believe it and then the National government will do something different that contradicts what was said. 15% GST is the most notable example of this as is the promise that New Zealand will be out of debt by 2014. meanwhile as far as not changing anything goes education, law and order, employment relations, and social welfare. (just to name a few) have been the focus of the National party's "neo-liberal" reforms.
Welfare for example is essential  in any county with significant unemployment however by far the worst part about the welfare reforms is the fact that the people being targeted are solo mothers and people with long term illnesses, people whose ability to work especially under "neo-liberal" conditions  tends to be limited at best, and any other demographics the see as being week enough to exploit for cheep labour.
lastly employment relations are at an all time low under the John Key government with companies such as Talleys and Ports of Auckland choosing to lockout union workers in order to deunionise the workplace allowing the employers alone to dictate working conditions hours and pay.

As stated in my last post this blog will be more about the improvement of my writing skills than political. much of what i will say will have already have been discussed in greater detail on better known blogs. however as time goes on i may be able to discuss whatever content i wish to draw attention to in greater detail  than i find possible at this stage. any political views that i express are however one hundred percent serious and not to be taken lightly. lastly i understand that presenting my thoughts through such a public medium is far more overt than  anything anyone who knows me personalty would expect me to do. but i feel i must write publicly to allow my writing to mature to a publishable standard.
I am in the process of starting a political blog in an attempt to improve my writing to a publishable standard. my views are quite far left and continue to become more radical with every passing day. the current economic model that our society follows serves the needs of a few privileged individuals at the determent of society as a whole as well as the environment.
