Labour goes for the racist vote - again

Once upon a time, anti-immigrant politics was the domain of the racist "NZ First" party. Now Labour wants a piece of the action:

If in power, a Labour Government would place a cap on immigration immediately.

"At times when our economy is creaking, we need to be able to turn down the tap a bit," Mr Little said.

Once the economy had recovered, the cap would be removed.

But of course Little is "reject[ing] any accusations of race-based policy". Bullshit. This is about pandering to racists and those who fear anything "foreign", the same demographic NZ First is chasing. Its disgusting and I expected better of them.

Fortunately, we have a principled, non-racist left-wing party to vote for. And people should do that, rather than vote for racist Labour.
