NZ’s experience proves the Voice is not a ‘simple request’
How best to understand the danger of the activists’ divisive Voice to Parliament?
Ask a Kiwi like Casey Costello, an equality campaigner with Maori and Irish/English heritage, who as spokesperson of Hobson’s Pledge, knows the grave consequences of dividing our democratic system by race.
She joined Fair Australia spokeswoman Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price in Canberra this week to issue a grim warning about what Australians can expect if New Zealand’s version of the Voice is a guide.
Remember this is what is coming if the dangerous and divisive Voice gets up.
She said New Zealand’s Voice and Treaty for the Maori – in the form of the Waitangi Tribunal – has become a “co-governance” model.
This means there are two governments in New Zealand, one for Maori, one for non-Maori.
And they are constantly in conflict.
Casey said this system has divided New Zealand by race on the assumption that “better decisions will be made because the Maori’s will have a voice”.
“Instead, it is a self-appointed, elitist minority advocating that they speak for all Maori, and the outcomes aren’t being achieved. In fact, in some areas we’ve gotten worse outcomes,” she said.
The specifics are terrifying.
