Why yes, ACT are very, very, very HARD RIGHT – how the Left defeat National and why they’ll screw it up

ACT’s alternative budget: Cuts to taxes and public services

The ACT Party is proposing a wide range of cuts and an increase to the superannuation age to achieve tax cuts and return the government to surplus within a year.

As The Daily Blog has been pointing out since the election, the extreme hard right policy of ACT is simply not appreciated by the majority of kiwis.

But it’s there, oh sweet Jesus is it there.

That’s just the start…

  • Cut and freeze the Minimum wage
  • Interest back on all student loans
  • No Kiwsaver subsidy
  • Cancel winter energy payment
  • Dump all climate crisis legislation
  • no more best start payments for families with new borns
  • cut welfare payments
  • no tax credits for research and development
  • cuts to working for families
  • $7b a year cut in public services
  • Abolish Maori seats
  • Abolish Human Rights Commission

This is Romper Stomper Hard Right insanity that makes Qanon look reasonable and because there is no way National can win without ACT, every vote to National empowers ACT.

David Seymour is a very funny, very clever, very talented politician who desperately wants what the humans call, ‘l-o-v-e’.

He doesn’t want to be in Parliament for one second longer than he has to.

He wants to get out of politics and get paid enormous money in the corporate world and maybe find a friend.

In short, David is a wide eyed idealogical mouth foamer who feels honour bound to mutilate the State so that it’s too wounded to ever grow back.

It’s called the Milton Friedman Prune.

David is a man in a hurry to try and get a life before politics robs him of one, so when he puts out these blistering policy directions that would cause enormous damage and carnage to the social infrastructure that so many people desperately require every day to survive, you best fucking believe he would do it in the blink of a sociopath’s eye.

The poor PSA representative the News cut to to get comment of what 14 000 job losses would look like in the public service stammered and almost burst into tears so needless was David’s malice.

While TDB has been pointing out that the Wellington Bureaucracy certainly do control policy and have far too much influence for their own self interest, we argue conquering that requires a plan to use tasers on their most sensitive areas to advance a left wing economic policy platform. It doesn’t require taking a chainsaw to the entire capacity of the State and calling that blunt force trauma amputation surgical!

David is throwing the baby, the bath, the little plastic toys, the soap and the entire toilet out with the bathwater.

I don’t see why the nation has to suffer another hard right neoliberal hatchet job on the State’s capacity to help people just because David Seymour wants to get laid now.

David wants to hand on heart be able to tell Satan that he did all he could to mutilate the State before he leaves for a life of first class travel and disappointed in-laws.


Here’s how you defeat National:

Just how batshit crazy ACT policy is will make many flinch.

Many blokes have walked away from Labour and the Greens and are voting National because they are sick of Jacinda and our ever triggered woke hysterical activists.

There are 2 things everyone flirting with voting National need to recognise right now.

1: Luxon can do the 45 second CEO soundbite but he has zero intellectual curiosity, he is a devout evangelical Christian whom believes his wealth is proof positive that Jesus loves him. His policies will make things far far far worse in this country in terms of housing, inequality and poverty so don’t pretend voting against Jacinda for him makes you radical or edgy, it makes you a fuckwit

2: Luxon is such a boofhead, he’ll let David run rings around him in terms of pushing through crazy ACT Party policy because Luxon isn’t interested in philosophy, he’s interested in God’s love of him being the best he can be. Policy is something the little people do, and Christopher don’t do little people stuff. National are selling Luxon’s certainty to you, and that’s all.

You vote National, you get ACT Far Right Policy.

Make no mistakes that Seymour wants to ram this madness through, and Chris Luxon is intellectually too vain to stop him.

You vote National, you get ACT Far Right Policy.

New National recruits are voting because they are angry with Labour and the Greens, they don’t realise yet what they are actually getting with that protest vote.

You vote National, you get ACT Far Right Policy.

Once punters realise what the fuck crazy David Seymour can ram past an easily distracted Luxon, the sooner they’ll come back to Labour.

Sure, male voters are pissed off with the Left, but they’re not fucking insane.


How the Left will fuck it up:

The above message, ‘Vote National and you get ACT Far Right policy’ is the only thing Labour and Green activists should say between now and the 2023 election.

That forces newly supporting National voters to reflect on what a blue tick actually is getting them and in turn can win back centrist supporters for Labour.

What the activist base will instead do however is get into social media death fights with ACT acolytes over policy while screaming racist and sexist which will end up pushing people deeper into their polarisation.


This next election is going to be the most extreme in NZ since Rogernomics.
