Ugh, he “identifies” with the National party. How much more ‘Woke’ can he possibly get? Add this to the stand he took in refusing to serve on all-male panel talks, then calling for the creation of women’s support networks in Air NZ and you have a candidate much more suited to a left-wing party than a right-wing one. The fact that he “identifies” with the National party shows you just how far the National party have fallen from their original core values.
