The problem in NZ politics - ok Western democracy

Share |
This instance highlights the lack of integrity in the Maori Party, but most particularly the parliamentary process since this behaviour is typical of politicians. Tariana Turia is the co-leader of the Maori Party. But she is also a minister in the NZ coalition with the National Party. In a recent parliamentary vote she was obliged to depart from her party position (which she supported) in order to vote with the government (ie. National Party).
The issue was the policy initiative of the National Party to limit assistance to single mothers I think to dependents less than 6 years of age. The stupidity of the system is that this is actually encouraged, and worse still because it is deemed acceptable.

Do we have any hope of good policy when:
1. Ministers are more loyal to the Cabinet than their own principles
2. Ministers sacrifice the interests of one group for the sake of another
3. Policy issues are decided by votes (i.e. numbers) rather than reasons or principles (concepts)
4. Minister self-interest is about retaining one's career.

The implication is that the system actually rewards such displays of disloyalty. This is the problem with the system and it needs to change. I don't know why people are so proud of our democracy. Any idiot should be able to see how rediculous the system is. It actually rewards bad behaviour.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
