Broken promises | The Jackal

Broken promises

Yesterday, Forest & Bird reported that National had already started to break its promises:

On the first working day after the election, Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson has told Forest & Bird that the government will break its promise to give New Zealanders a say about whether an open-cast coal mine on Denniston Plateau public conservation land can go ahead.

I know I should be outraged about this but it's really no surprise. National has amassed a huge list of broken promises, simply because their environmentally destructive agenda requires them to mislead the public.

You can sign the petition to save the Denniston Plateau from open cast coal mining here.
