NZ Firsters mount hobbyhorses for last rodeo
The New Zealand First caucus is meeting in Wellington this morning to confirm what they want from the new Government.
Deputy leader Shane Jones says each of the eight members has their own priorities, with former Wellington mayor Andy Foster concerned about his successor’s handling of the Let’s Get Wellington Moving infrastructure project, and life coach Tanya Unkovich wanting to get rid of the Therapeutics Products Act passed in July.
“So everyone’s got to have the opportunity to identify their a of things that reflect the comprehensive interests of the party and then Winston will sail forth but those issues and those kinds of organisational aspects we can’t really deal with until we have had a meeting as a caucus,” he says.
Mr Jones says the New Zealand First is opposed to tax cuts if they worsen the chance of New Zealanders being able to buy a house.
