The Family Party has a pre-election conference this weekend in Auckland:

Family Party Pre-election Conference

“Putting Families First”

Saturday 27 September, 10am to 2pm

Metro Theatre, 351 Massey Road, Mangere

09 2758703 or office@familyparty.org.nz

I will be speaking on “Family and Environment go together”, and as I aren’t often in Auckland it would be a great chance to meet any of you who live up there, if you know me from the blogs be sure to say hi.

Jeanette Fitzsimons – Cars & trucks stopping climate change!

Well, I am pretty sure she didn’t mean to say that in her transport policy speech but what she said was:

Our transport system is systematically biased in favour of cars and trucks, and against trains, buses, ferries, bikes, and people on foot. It is biased against climate change.

Which is great. Our transport system is already working against climate change by encouraging cars and trucks. Hurrah, skip the rest of her speech, we obviously don’t need more regulations if we’re doing such a great job already…
