National must back talk with walk

Posted on 24 Jun 2005
ACT Leader Rodney Hide said today that Don Brash was right to equate the protection of our freedom and democracy with the defence of private property rights. The three go hand in hand.
 
“But Don Brash’s National Party must back their talk with their votes.
 
“Last August every National MP, including Don Brash, voted for Nick Smith’s bill to pinch land from framers selling their land to overseas buyers.
 
“A land grab is a land grab, whether it’s done by Labour or National.
 
“I am pleased National are joining ACT in opposing Labour’s land grab.  But to back National’s talk, Don Brash needs to publicly condemn Nick Smith’s bill that’s a land grab worse than what Labour proposes,” Mr Hide said.
