Constitutional Change

Jordan had a letter published in the NZ Herald attacking Don Brash for not participating in the upcoming stocktake of constitutional issues, stating “New Zealand’s constitution is too important to be subject to partisan games”.

My reply was published today:

“Jordan Carter laments National’s decision not to participate in the upcoming stocktake of constitutional issues, saying “New Zealand’s constitution is too important to be subject to partisan games”.

He is right, but should be directing his comments at Helen Clark who came up with the idea as a political response to the support Don Brash gained after his Orewa speech, and who chose to announce it in the most partisan way possible – at a party conference. It’s a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.

It’s quite fun to argue in the mainstream media, as well as online 🙂
