Voters must boot out vaka jumpers

Tuesday February 12, 2019 Published in Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

It is very disgusting to see how our new crop of politicians is behaving.


They often say that they joined politics to help their people, but it appears they are only interested in themselves.

They stand for a political party promoting the party’s goals and objectives then they bunny hop to another political party when they feel like it.

This attitude is similar to a pig in between two troughs trying to eat from both at the same time.

Cook Islanders should not tolerate politicians who make a mockery out of our democracy.

I say they should be booted out because they obviously are in politics for themselves.

They were elected as part of a team and should not get away with the arrogance and lack of loyalty displayed by their actions.

They show no remorse or commitment whatsoever and abandon ship without suffering the consequences for being so shallow and self-centered.

Our people need to vote these idiots out because they are undermining the principles and values of a good democracy.

    Dear Sir,

    With respect to your writer, members of parliament have been "crossing the floor" or joining another party or "moving to the cross benches" since "time immemorial"in our own parliament or in that our of our neighbours, New Zealand or Australia...or in Great Britain.
