What’s behind the Luxon turnabout?
Chris Luxon and Chris Bishop, the two should-be Labour party members who have infiltrated the National party, have today astonishingly come out in support of the small business people and parents and individuals who three weeks ago protested Covid19 mandates on the lawn of parliament house.
The edited video of their press conference can be seen below. It is remarkable for the complete lack of shame expressed by these two MPs, as they come out with statements that if they had been said a month or more ago would have changed the whole face of the protest.
Then Luxon and Bishop were busy vilifying and denigrating the protesters in line with the mission embarked upon by the politically partisan actors who have taken over our mainstream media. What, after only such a small passage of time, could possibly have caused this remarkable reversal?
The facial expressions of Bishop and Luxon certainly do not convey enthusiasm for this change. They’re also making the announcement on Friday, which is when parties traditionally release statements they don’t want to see widely covered.
An intelligent guess would be that they were forced into it. Either by the demands of high value donors to the party, or by a mini-rebellion within the ranks.
It is also a good guess that Simon Bridges didn’t quit for a life style change, as he claims. He quit because he did not like the fact that the party had been taken over by the wet far left Labour-orientated Luxon clique.
People like Bishop, Willis and Stanford, light weight opportunistic players who have no connection to National’s traditional founding principles and probably think of those fine principles as incomprehensible and out-dated nonsense.
Bridge’s departure makes Luxon vulnerable in respect of any further resignations. If say Judith Collins or anyone else suddenly decided to take a stand, Luxon would have to yield or suffer the embarrassment and damage of another resignation.
So its likely one of these two reasons that have made the Nats whistle a different tune. (Or it could be that finally, exasperated everyday NZers are attending Nat party gatherings and telling these vacillating pretenders they have to man up. One fervently hopes this is happening.)
One could wonder if Luxon and Bishop will have the guts to thank the every day New Zealanders who suffered pepper spray and batons and rubber bullets and so much other police brutality to break the ice for them. So they could safely make these statements at this later stage.
Given this blog is authored anonymously it is only prudent to refrain from suggesting that people who have the courage to stand for election are cowards. They deserve credit for this, no matter what party.
However the National Party’s sudden turnabout on this issue, after they were so weakly compliant to the fake mainstream media message only three weeks ago, and when their voice was so badly needed, especially by the brave people on parliaments lawn, makes it very difficult to restrain oneself from using this label.
