What Don Brash stands for

According to his alternative budget presented in the Dominion-Post this morning, it's tax cuts for the rich and a boost in Police spending. But it's not a case of protecting those that have from those that don't, no - according to Brash the Police's inability to adequetly investigate property crimes (and that's all he mentions - property crimes) discourages economic growth.

I knew Brash was bad, but he's now made clear exactly what he stands for: a government that exists solely to further enrich the already wealthy, and protect them at all costs from those impoverished in the process. This is not the New Zealand I want, and I hope he never comes within a mile of the government benches.
