The Green Movement

Dear Peg and Friends,
Only a day or so to go now before we have a new Government, or will we. If the polls are to believed, the Greens should to make a real large impact this time. They will want if they are elected to assist in making up the Government, or if they end up in the position of being ‘King Maker’. For sure they will want more and be busy dragging out some of their more ‘way out’ and extreme polices.
Frankly they worry me, to me they are not what they seem to be to most other people. For a start they are not a cuddly group, bringing to the table goodwill. Basically in spite of their ‘Green’ image, whatever that is. They are very much a Party leaning to the left, which they have managed to keep hidden so far. They have several left leaning policies that they will trot out, as soon as they consider they can get them acted on. To some, they are a Party that’s actually looking backwards, and wanting to live in the past. Never underestimate them, with only a toe hold on power, they have managed to lock up most of the west Coast. Targeting the Mining, and certainly most of all the Timber Milling industry. There are hundreds of kilometres of roads running through the West Coast regions, all flanked by Forest. In their book, our pristine forests are only for looking at, and never to be touched. Rivers that could be damned, well if they have anything to do with it, they will also remain in the same untouched category. The word Dam is not even in their vocabulary. Nothing like a Dam will ever happen while they have any power. But it gives pointers to what they would like to happen in other directions.
Farmers for instant, they should be more than a little worried, as they will be the next to be targeted, and they will find with these people, that water will suddenly be rationed. The Greens have some very strange attitude to most of our resources. This is understandable as hidden in their party there are many zealots. They come with all kinds of baggage, so don’t expect the kindly green image that they project to benefit you, but expect many kinds of Green policies that make you wonder sometimes, if they are actually working for New Zealand, or against it. Rather than let the Farmers take the water, the Greens seem to be happier to see the resource flowing out to sea untouched.
But the carbon Tax is the one area where I have the most concerns. The Greens will push for a carbon tax on most forms of energy, and the pool of money this will generate is going to be huge.  I would like to know exactly what’s going to happen to this money. Almost everything in their eyes seems to generate carbon, and therefore should be taxed. Even our animals. They want to be leaders in tis area. So Farmers again will b under attack again as their animals are taxed. But note the biggest users of the earth’s resources, China, America, and India all in the immediate future, plan to do absolutely nothing. But not New Zealand, we will try to do our utmost to save the world, all on our own.
The Greens are a recent arrival onto the political scene. In 1980 it was formed from the remanets of the Values Party. This is where the left leaning policies come from. They have also attracted members and affiliations from like minded people, such as Green Peace, Save the whales, these folk also carry a militant streak within, and think that the end is justified regardless of how it was accomplished. No matter what they try to do. There are some very large dark clouds on the horizon, and we as a Country need to be very careful what we do any with new policies that involves the spending large sums of money that we don’t have.
Love from Christchurch,
