NZ to give Libya financial aid
Wed, 24 Aug 2011 6:36a.m.
Prime Minister John Key has revealed the Government is likely to support the Libyan rebels with millions of dollars in aid.
Mr Key says he's already signed off a letter to formally recognise the Libyan rebels through the National Transitional Council.
Any money given to Libya would be taken from existing aid funds.

The letters above indicate that some of the people are beginning to see through the straw man John Key. Giving money borrowed in our name and on which we pay interest to a gang of kill crazy mal-contents, whom we have no idea of what they really stand for is treacherous to say the least. He probably got his orders from another traitor name Obama, so regardless of the pain and suffering endured by far more deserving cases, traitor John will shell out to a country swimming in oil??? Go figure. But if one researches John Key's actions since he became PM, this is just more of the same. That there is undoubtedly poverty right here in NZ, which all Tories deny, and which the party which is supposed to represent NZers, and work on their behalf, for improvements to their well being, should be addressing. But not the smiling knife, who seeks photo ops like an addict, but avoids constituents like the plague, as he did in Paraparaumu yesterday. Conservative cowardice! Like wise his sellout of NZers right to choose their own choice of alternative medicines, by signing up to TGA, thereby allowing Ozzies to dictate to us what medication, i.e. poisonous pharmaceuticals we must use. Was this the payout to Aus for allowing our apples in? Why hasn't the media disclosed this piece of Key treachery? Could it be that we only have a corporate media in NZ? And the Greens are supporting a bill to give effect to the sell out. Another bunch of perfidious self servers, athroprogenic? climate change wankers. Believers in junk science while denying the truth about climate change. It.s not CO2 emissions, it's the lack of trees to convert CO2 to oxygen, which is an underlying cause, the the suedo-science spouted by the pathetically ignorant greenies. Hone Harawira speaks more common sense, and that's saying something heh? History will record the absolute lunacy of electing National and John Key to govern NZ.

It is just too show the world that he does not care about the New Zealanders,but cares about other countries,by spending borrowed money too give them, when we have to go through heavy cuts in living etc.This show man has to go in November,and dont know why the media keeps giving him such high points on the polls,when he can do this to us Kiwis who are still here.

And could someone tell me why, when our national debt is so high, are we continuing to borrow money and then giving millions in aid money to Libya?

With its oil resources Libya will very soon be in a better position to give us some financial aid. Italy, China and some EU countries will be looking after their investments, injecting more capital and the country will be soon in a fine position to look after its own people. NZ offering aid just looks dumb... very dumb John, think again please.

So we are rich enough to give aid to Libya? Where does John Key get his mandate to give money away like this? Does he really believe that New Zealand wants him to do this? Why Libyia? What criteria made him select the Transitional Council rather that, say, the Syrian opposition or the opponents of Robert Mugabe?
What do we know of the Transitional Council? Absolutely nothing. What are their plans for our money. Absolutely no idea. The US State Department has announced that they will unfreeze between 1 and 1.5 billion dollars and hand it to the Council. So why on earth do they need our millions.
This is a knee-jerk reaction displaying an astonishing political naïveté and a generosity with funds that have now been lost to many many more deserving causes in our disease and famine ridden world.
