The real Christopher Luxon
If Jimmy Shaw suddenly became leader of National there would be an outcry from the party’s supporters. The man in the street supporter that is. The hard core of the party, the same people who have let it drift steadily left for forty years, would probably be flat out on Kiwiblog and other social media telling you to still vote for National.
They would justify this hysterical demand with the mantra that National are a “better” or less left choice than Labour. So you simply have to vote National if you want to save New Zealand from socialist hell.
The logic behind this mantra is badly flawed. Each time National is elected, NZ still moves left only at a slightly slower pace. So we fall deeper into the socialist mire each election no matter how we vote.
Its a roundabout to destruction, and now after two terms of hopelessly incompetent govt by Labour, its National’s turn again.
Bill Hayden was Australian Labor’s opposition leader in 1983 when he was replaced by Bob Hawke. At the time, Mr Hayden made the memorable observation that due to incumbent Liberal PM Malcolm Fraser’s unpopularity, “a drover’s dog could win the next election”.
Which is how it is shaping up in New Zealand. Labour’s current bunch of incompetent ideologues under Young Socialist International and WEF protégé Jacinda Ardern have done almost irreparable damage to the country’s social fabric and its economy. They’re probably the worst govt New Zealanders have ever elected, and the regret amongst voters is palpable.
So now you have read the preamble, here is the news. Christopher Luxon, the man you will be most likely be voting for in the expectation he may halt or slow our slide into socialism is pretty much Jimmy Shaw. Of course he has been trying hard to keep this low key in his public utterances, but if you take some time to look at his background, it becomes quite plain he’s a man of the green left. (Watch the video and see why!)

Luxon’s ascent to the leadership in November last year signaled success at last for National’s “Blue Green” revolutionaries. They had previously failed spectacularly when the bumbling and incoherent Todd Muller replaced Simon Bridges. A mistake that ensured the 2020 election would be won by Ardern with a record number of votes for the Labour party.
Current Deputy leader Nicola Willis played a key role in the disastrous Muller play. She should have been fired then, but instead stayed on and repeated the same role in the Luxon coup, enthusiastically assisted by Chris Bishop.
With Luxon as leader. Willis as deputy and Bishop as Leader of the House, Sid Holland’s National party is now under the total control of the green left, a faction that has nothing but contempt for the individual rights and small govt platform the party was formed in 1936 to promote.
Based on Bill Hayden’s “drover’s dog” prediction, National will win the 2023 election and Chris Luxon will be PM. New Zealand will continue to slide left, this time at a rate far exceeding that of most other National govts, mainly due to Luxon’s inexplicable devotion to the myth of climate change.
Like all of National’s blue green faction, Luxon is apparently quite blind to the plain fact that the climate change “emergency” is a strategy that has been seized on by the left because it gives them the power over labour and capital they have always yearned for but would otherwise have little chance of achieving.
So vote for National and you will get their version of Jimmy Shaw as PM. A man whose ability to think rationally and logically about NZ’s future is hopelessly restricted by his mistaken belief that we are facing a climate “emergency”.
Is there a solution to this dilemma? Ideally, before the next election, there would be a counter-revolution within National aimed at returning it to its mission of protecting individual rights and limiting the power of the state. God knows such a force has never been more needed. However this is unlikely.
The only remaining option is to try and get the party to see sense by going to its public meetings and telling them loudly and insistently where they are going wrong. Making them commit to promises to get your vote, and then making sure they keep those promises.
If the green left imposter Christopher Luxon is left to do as he pleases, National’s great founding principles and all they mean will be gone with the wind. Perhaps for ever. It can’t happen, and we shouldn’t let it.
Sometimes though the only way to learn is the hard way, and maybe today in New Zealand, that is the only real solution. It would mean bad times, but it is looking increasingly like the most likely long term outcome. Just too bad for our kids and grandkids. History will not be kind to Mr Luxon and his ilk.
