Civilian Party goes live

The Civilian Party is now live:

. . .  The Civilian Party is a real political party, but it is not a political party like any you have seen before. It is not a left-wing party or a right-wing party. It is neither left-of-centre, nor right-of-centre. The Civilian Party is up-of-centre, because we believe in moving upwards toward a brighter future, like a moth to a flame. We don’t want to move the country sideways; we want to move it forward. . . .

 It’s policies include:

Declare New Zealand’s independence from Hamilton. (Read more)

Establish a space program, and become the first nation in Australasia to send a man to the moon; not to explore it, just someone we don’t like.

Reform the tax system so that it rewards success and punishes failure. Ensure that the bulk of taxes are aimed at the greatest source of poverty in New Zealand: the poor. (Read more)

Remove the monarchy and become an independent banana republic. (Read more)

Close the pay gap between men and women by working to reduce men’s wages.

Alleviate poverty amongst children by giving every poverty-stricken child a llama as a means to a basic income.

End discrimination against social majorities. No more special services just for Maori; no more car parks just for disabled people; no more hip operations just for people who need hip operations.

Relegalise illegal legal highs. The recent government crackdown on these products was overzealous, and there is no reason that perfectly legal substances should be illegal. (Read more)

Make Wellington airport safer by moving it to Christchurch. . . .

If the Mcgillicuddy Serious Party still exists it has a rival, if it doesn’t it has a successor.

    It’s great to have some political humour that all areas of the political spectrum (perhaps not the Conservatives) can enjoy. I think the McGillicuddies stopped contesting national elections when MMP allowed many new parties to exist that had nuttier policies than them (but were serious). The Civilian Party is a worthy successor 🙂
