Politics …. nobody likes to talk about politics.
We live in a democratic country – New Zealand.
This means that as citizens we have a say in how the country is run. It may seem like we only have a small say, which as individuals is correct; however we at least have a voice.
As a mortgage broker and business owner I am all too aware of the impact that political decisions can have. A robust economy gives stability which makes planning easier, but often with our system of MMP (mixed member proportional) we are getting a coalition Government which sees the smaller parties having a seemingly unfair advantage and influence which leads to decisions being made to satisfy the minority which upsets the stability.
While most Kiwis will have a party they prefer and typically vote for, my political blog is designed to discuss the issues that I see as important or where I may have a view rather than pushing a specific party.
