Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill – Committee Stage – Clause 5 – Video 7


skelewu I move that the question being output now Madame chair the previous speaker referred in relation to this bill to a word starting with H and ending with Y and I racked my brains as to what he could be meaning and I think it might be history because history explains this piece of legislation because it’s all about what has happened to Winston Peters and New Zealand first over the years and he has lost control of his caucuses and the normal course of democracy is to handle this in this way so if tuku Morgan remember some of these names – Arika delamere Elam main kopua people like that leave their party midway through a three year cycle and vote with another side the election the electric gets to the side and make a judgement on the wisdom or otherwise of that move at the end of the three-year cycle in vote them out now when Rob wrote Donald and Jeanette for Simon’s did that the electorate decided that well they actually did the right thing and the Greens stayed in power and I see some members of the Greens here and they should be hanging there hidden shame because that was the formation of their party so so the system works if people leave their party they have to face the judgement of the voters at the end of the three-year cycle if they’ve done a good job they will survive if they haven’t they will be kicked out so what is the question I have for the person in the chair is what is the problem that we’re trying to solve here that isn’t being sold effectively so this Clause talks about the leader recently believed that the member is going to distort the nature of Parliament we have to say well what is mr. Peters so worried about is he worried that Shane Jones for example would support say the region of Taranaki over oil and gas and cross the floor and distort the nature of Parliament whoa he should be much more confident in the nature of us of his min in pieces is it Derrick moil going a ball going across in as manaat’ supporting this government’s move to hurt small businesses by bringing in 90-day trials for example or what would it be Tracy Mountain suddenly finding a conscience over charter schools nor would it be ronmark deciding that actually we need to make a living in this country and we’re not going to support the greens policy of not having any mining on conservation estates all these issues are issues that are naturally debated and argued within caucuses and sometimes on very rare examples were very rare instances members of parliament decide either to cross the floor or ultimately to stand by the conscience and defend what they see as the principles that they were elected upon and this clause in this legislation would give the party leader the ability to flush them clean out of parliament and usurp the right of the democrat the the electors of New Zealand to make their judgement and when I look at what’s happened here you can’t help but conclude that this is all part of the deals that are going on in this government so there’s no question that today we’ve we’re having introduced into Parliament an oil and gas bill in Taranaki that by some measures is gonna cost seven point nine billion dollars and in some ways that is the cost of this bill because there was a clear deal done New Zealand first gets the Walker jumping bill greens get the oil and gas bill so the Greens are sitting there munching away on a hairy dead rat which they have to chew on straying slightly well sorry madam chip it might be a tyre maybe it was a time but in order to support this bill which is against the very core of what the Green Party has stood for they are supporting that bill this bill in order for New Zealand first to support the oil and gas bill which goes against the total grain of what Shane Jones for example talks about when he talks about supporting Taranaki we see again that is the nature of this government receive again recently over refugees and no doubt there’ll be some changes to the industrial relations ago and these sorts of dirty deals going on or what is undermining undermining the confidence undermining the confidence in this government and in this economy madam chair I would say whatever happened well whatever happened to not be so vigorous and has interjections unless they’re going to be useful to the debate you’re just it’s just barricade thank you very do I get do I get my ten seconds back because I just lost ten seconds but yet mr. Derrick ball I think the point I wanted to well I’ll leave it on Clause 55
