Is United Future Falling from Grace.

Filed under: Child Support,General,Law & Courts — Downunder @ 1:18 am Thu 7th September 2006

There was a gasp for the political life of United Future as its deputy Leader Judy Turner took up the challenge of providing leadership and direction to the floundering party.

Today’s attack on Mr Boshier would normally be politically unacceptable, but commonsense has prevailed. The family court has lost credibility, and can no longer stand behind the unwritten convention that keeps parliament and the judiciary away from public criticism of each other.

While I welcome Mrs Turners leadership and political tenacity, in defending the fatherhood of New Zealand, and the principles of her party, we must not loose site of the overall relationship that The United Future Party has with the Labour Party, which at the end of the day is the policy machine behind this social engineering organisation we call the family court.

The day Mr Dunne took the position of Minister of Revenue he shot himself in the foot and his party in the back.

The big question for The United Future Party:

Will they sink with him or swim without him?

Fathers watch with interest.


  1. Bevan,

    Who will the Republic party lay with to get their bills past?

    If you want to be in the areana you need to start making friendships and I think United Future would be a worthwhile start.

  2. You may well be right there Julie, but I don’t think that is a decision that we are going to make, that is a decision for United Future to make. They are the one walking the tight rope. They can either get off or fall off.
