‘Jobless & Betrayed’

We Were Warned !!!

In the early 1960s, my father travelled the length and breadth of New Zealand, where, in a series of public meetings, he warned of the inherent dangers in joining the World Bank.

People laughed at him — for, at that time, there was no unemployment in New Zealand and we enjoyed the third highest standard of living in the developed world.

Today, New Zealand is a debtor nation — technically bankrupt — and, in recent years, successive Governments have begun selling off our assets and infrastructure to satisfy demands of the world’s banks.

We have been betrayed . . .
