Libertarianz To Greens: No Coalition Deal

21 October 2008 21:20:00

Libertarianz today confirmed that they will not consider going into coalition with the Green Party.

Libertarianz has evaluated Green Party policies against 12 freedom-based criteria and has found that the Green Party is the most totalitarian party in parliament.

The Libertarianz offers a visual summary of this evaluation of the Green Party with the video “Ban It”:

The Green Party is addicted to banning. A search on the Green Party website reveals they want to ban:

Grape imports, alcohol ads, political speech for one year in three, ferrets, TV ads for kids, ads on TVNZ, growth hormones, native wood chip exports, native logging, pig swill, xenotransplantion trials, smacking, GE, field trials for GE, chemical trespass, property rights from the Bill of Rights, quick-fire logging, logging, fishing for toothfish, commercial fishing over much of New Zealand, whaling, ‘toxic timber,’ set-netting, bottom trawling, feeding animal remains to farm animals, battery cages, CCA-treated timber in playgrounds, direct-to-consumer advertising of drugs, crisps and meat pies from tuck shops, “the screening of programmes which sensationalise violence or use violence,” “the routine feeding of antibiotics to healthy animals,” GE maize, commercial releases of genetically engineered crops, “nuclear shipments from New Zealand’s exclusive economic zone,” sow crates, the dry sow stall, “weapons of mass destruction,” the tooth fairy, nuclear powered vessels in our waters, beef imports from Britain to other European countries, “Japanese fishing boats from New Zealand waters,” “the importation of all timber and timber products not certified as sustainable,” “unsustainable” biofuels, open-cast mining, driven-shaft, gold mining, coal mining, mining, human cloning, sheep cloning, food irradiation, spray drift, all ships carrying nuclear weapons, wastes and fuel from the European Economic Zone, “backyard burning of rubbish such as plastics and treated timber,” fireworks, “smoking in all workplaces including bars, restaurants and offices,” “new uses of coal for energy,” existing uses of coal of energy, new thermal power stations, “factory farming,” dairy farming around Lake Taupo, dairy farming around Rotorua lakes, dairy farming in the Waikato river basin, “project-based approvals for the development of GE organisms,” “all further building of prisons,” free trade with China, junk food advertising to children, “the sale and long-term lease of New Zealand property to foreign investors,” “the sale of toy tobacco products to under 18s,” GM wheat, “environmentally destructive fishing methods,” “uranium shipments,” “the use of the antibiotic avoparcin in animal feed,” “imports of cars older than 7 years,” amalgam use in dentistry, the incineration of unsorted waste, unsorted waste, waste, “risky anti-depressants,” “import of tissue for sheep cloning,” ‘trade in hazardous wastes,” designer babies, plastic shopping bags, shopping bags, shopping, live sheep exports, and dihydrogen monoxide.
