Racism on offer in Epsom

John Banks on TV3′s program, “The Nation”.

For my friends in Australia and beyond, John Banks is leader of the Act party. His party is currently polling at 1.5%, which means that under New Zealand’s MMP electoral system, they won’t get any seats in Parliament, unless someone from Act wins an electorate seat. John Banks may win the seat in Epsom, if enough National party voters there hold their noses and vote for him.

This is the man they are being asked to vote for.

Well, we’re all victims of crime. All victims of crime. If we continue the bankrupt response of just paying young Polynesian, young Maori men in south Auckland the dole to sit in front of TV, smoke marijuana, watch pornography and plan ..ah.. more drug offending and more burglaries, then we’re going to have them coming through our windows regardless if we live in Epsom or anywhere else in the greater Auckland, we have to deal with the root cause of law and order.

I don’t think this needs any analysis at all. It’s just out and out, vicious, nasty racism.

Yesterday, our Prime Minister John Key, leader of the National party, had a cup of tea with this man, in a clear signal to people in Epsom that they should vote for him, and so get the Act party into Parliament.

John Key wants people in Epsom to vote for racism.
