NZ First admits ACT foiled its Kiwisaver theft plans

BY David Seymour at 22 September, 2017


NZ First candidate Richard Prosser has admitted today that he and Winston Peters planned to nationalise the assets of New Zealander’s Kiwisaver schemes, until their scheme was called out by ACT leader David Seymour.

“Winston Peters can’t be trusted in government,” Mr Seymour said. “He only abandoned his North Korean nationalisation plans when ACT challenged him in public. What else is he planning?”

The RMA is the real culprit of the current fuel crisis, says ACT deputy leader Beth Houlbrooke, who worked as PA to the project director during the pipeline’s installation in 1982.

“While it’s understandable that the Government wants to

“This is a teachable moment for politicians who harp on about governments getting a revenue stream from business investments. For every productive investment there’s a Solid Energy.
