Just disgusting! And very revealing!
A recording featuring National Party Deputy Leader Bill English shown on TV3 tonight revealed that the National Party are really warmongers who would tag along on any US-led resource (read oil) war, and expressing his concern that Barak Obama, if elected President of the US as expected, might not play to the National Party agenda of leading foreign wars National could tag along with and get young New Zealanders killed in.
And as Irish Bill has just said over at The Standard, “It was also interesting to see that Bill English refused an interview to explain himself.”
This is revolting warmongering from English, and totally vindicates the Green Party’s position to not support National to lead a Government.
And given Obama’s likely election tomorrow, how much harm will English’s “cocktail party” comments do to NZ’s relations with the US if National leads the Government here.
You silly dork Bill, you might be a warmongering Tory, but for New Zealand’s sake if you are on the piss at least have the sense to keep your gob shut.
