Greens Demand Celebration of Mediocrity

Tamaki Independent candidate Stephen Berry congratulates those who are on the latest National Business Review rich list. “Success, greed and ambition are all important qualities for self-betterment that should be celebrated in a free society.”

“What should be absolutely condemned are the attitudes of anti-success, anti-achievers like the control freak sponges of the Green party. Their call for the creation of a poor list is the worst idea for humanity since it was necessary to write up Schindler’s List!”

Stephen Berry believes it takes a special kind of moral and economic ineptitude to believe a celebration of success such as the NBR rich list needs to be countered with the promotion of mediocrity such as the ‘poor list’ proposed by Green co-leader Metiria Turei. “Ms. Turei clearly got her educational qualifications out of a box of Budget Wheat Biscuits. She must have an intellectual capacity barely sufficient to fasten her sandals if she thinks it is logical to use the success of rich list members to discuss a lifting of the minimum wage.”

Turei’s objection to the NBR rich list is that it demonstrates that the richest of society have had a 20% increase in their income. She points out that if there had been an equivalent increase in the minimum wage, then the lowest earning workers would be receiving a wage of $15.60.

Mr. Berry argues that there is no logical comparison. “Those on the rich list who have improved their financial position have done so by expanding their businesses, increasing employment, ambition, innovation and pure hard work. Turei’s comparison using the minimum wage has none of those qualities. An increase in the minimum wage is nothing but the use of state force to give the creators of wealth a swift kick in the metaphorical balls.”

Stephen Berry concludes by saying, “The reason people stay in poverty is because they share the same ideas as bludgers like the left wing politicians in this country. They have zero ambition, an unqualified sense of entitlement and focus on increasing labour regulations rather than their own productivity. If workers focus on increasing their skills, increasing their productivity and possess some ambition beyond next week’s pay check, they will find the future becomes much more promising.”

“It will certainly be better than the annual scrap over miniscule wage percentage increases negotiated by trade unions and politicians that encourage and protect mediocrity amongst the lowest paid in our country.”
