John Key Isn’t The Inspirational Leader New Zealand Needs

For New Zealand to make progress John Key is not the person that we need to be leading the country. My feeling is that he has no empathy, passion or commitment to our welfare any more (that’s assuming that you had these qualities when he first office).

Moving into 2014 and election-year New Zealand has been following international trends and putting profit before people in many cases in my opinion. I think it is disastrous for the collective spirit and heart of the country.

The poverty gap between the haves and the have-nots is growing even wider and I believe there is no direct correlation between government policies (i.e. selling of public assets, the shrinkage of the welfare state and the loss of the majority of manufacturing jobs); these are all things that diminish national identity and a feeling of well-being!

Come election time I’m going to have to think long and hard about who I would like to vote for Mr Key will have to do much to redeem himself in my eyes before I cast my vote for him this time.
