How to vote.

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 3:25 pm Wed 19th September 2007

The Human Rights Commission has been taken to task today by the Republic of NZ Party, after a media release from EEO Commissioner Dr Judy McGregor, urged

“Women to vote in the up-coming local body elections and to consider voting for quality female candidates.”



  1. I personally will be voting only for Male cantidates.

    How can the human rights commission which after all is opposed to discrimination against one gender

  3. Given what transpired it is probably not on the HRC website, but I am sure if you use the media email link they would ‘happily’ supply you with a copy of the release.

  4. Thanx Bevan, you are right, it is not on the HRC’s site.

    If you had something to do with holding them back, well done.

  6. @julie
    Thanks for posting that for NZ readers.

    For those who are unfamiliar with Segolene Royal she was the socialist candidate in the French presidential election earlier this year. She tried the same gambit a couple of days before the election when the polls had them neck and neck. She ended up losing by about fifteen percent after women, rightfully feeling patronised, deserted her in droves.

  7. Voting is a privilege.
    It should be on the basis/assumption that the person is educated.
    So they can make an informed decision.
    I think letting children vote is wrong.
    If the adults get it wrong.
    They can change it when they become adults.

    I for obvious reasons.
    Like I am not registered as an elector.
    Will not be voting.

    I can say however.
    I like.

  8. Inherently the left fails, on economic performance.
    As they allow dependency, spreading to everything.
    With many nations, they start to lose control.
    $127 billion, and quickly growing.
    That’s $24,000, for every human in NZ.
    My family, is $100,000 in debt.
    If interest was 5%, then it’s $100 a week in tax.

    I think budget deficits, is not a sign of competence.
    Actually I see it as a personality trait, of humans.
    Like a road to riches, a story many with debts follow.
    Using others money, on the premise of making money.
    Even the poor with credit, can behave like the rich man.
    Without the debt actually making money, the debtor is doomed.
    Now they propose, fine tuning the amount of debt.
    Accommodating, desires to spend.
    Thousands more now, reliant on government spending.

    Eventually, the voter will have enough.
    No false promise of future surplus, will work.
    A correction to surplus, itself becomes inevitable.
