So the powers-that-be want to do a constitutional review.
Why would I be far from enthusiastic? Well, they tend to lie a lot, for a start.
I wouldn't trust the current rabble as far as I could comfortably spit a large rat.
When our political overlords see fit to ignore referendums with huge support- about 90% (and how often do 90% of people agree on ANYTHING?)- how can we trust them to do our bidding?
Could we expect any debate, much less action on the most fundamental human right- the right to defend ones very life, and that of their own- without being persecuted by the apparatus of the crown prosecutions office?
Can we expect special privilege and endless funding at the public's expense for the Maori elite to be further strengthened by legislation?
Can we expect the troughers to use a constitution to feather their own nests in any way possible?
Would anyone expect otherwise!
Can we expect debate on minimizing government?
