New MP Richard Prosser dreams of a New Zealand where compulsory military training has returned and the burqa is banned.
The Canterbury-based NZ First list MP has some controversial ideas, many of which he has voiced in his column in Investigate magazine.
The 44-year-old is one of eight NZ First MPs elected to parliament last week. …
Compulsory military training had many social, economic and military benefits, Prosser has written. He stands by that, saying it would be good for New Zealand.
He also stands by his call that New Zealand should follow France’s lead and ban the burqa – a move which had, he wrote, outraged “Muslims, leftists, commies, pinkos, the entire anti-white western civilisation brigade, along with their media toadies”.
You know a Labour/Green/NZ First Government could be quite enjoyable, from a spectator point of view.
Prosser acknowledged he was not a “lone wolf” and his ideas would have to go through the party framework.
“But I’ve got a mark to make. I don’t come in here thinking I know everything, but I’m not going to breathe through my nose.
Absolutely. I encourage all new NZ First MPs to speak their minds.
