No Minister


So, now the news that New Zealand is no longer accepting resettlement applications from Afghani nationals. This needs to be seen against the poker-faced lie peddled by the Prime Minister when she authorised the dispatch of a C-130 to help with the evacuation of foreign nationals from Kabul and those Afghani citizens at risk of retaliation from the Taliban for having worked for NZL as LECs. She deliberately ignored the fact that there was no way those LEC’s could get from Banyam to Kabul and, even if they could, break through the Taliban cordon surrounding the airport.

And this against the backdrop of the Minister of Immigration’s refusal to grant entry to those very same people just a couple of months ago when they could have left the country safely. The NZDF could only respond thus … “Those NZDF personnel who served in Afghanistan and worked with locally employed Afghan people cared deeply about that country, and the people who at times undertook paid work for the NZDF, including interpreters… Notwithstanding the dedication of NZDF personnel who served in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people, issues related to residency or citizenship in New Zealand are matters for Immigration New Zealand.”

Ardern is guilty of virtue signalling at its sickening worst and her administration exits Afghanistan with blood on its hands.

  1. Blood on hands? they are standing in it safely a bloody long way from Kabul. Perhaps a weeny bit more serious than Ponytail tugging playfully in public, we shall see how it is treated in the bought and paid media arm of the administration (used advisedly) shall we?
    I shall quote one of her heroes who suggested; “one death may be a tragedy, a million dead merely a statistic”, alas we shall never know just how many heads will be separated from the bodies of those poor sods so callously abandoned by Faafoi at her behest in early June where, as you correctly point out could have been rescued in absolute safety up until the end of the following month. Kindness strangely not available try again later.

  2. This doesn’t seem very “kind”.
