NZ Nats against the proposed mining plans too...

OUCH! NZ Nat voters say no to  mining too! 

A Business Council for Sustainable Development survey just out shows the majority of New Zealanders oppose the Government’s mining plans.

But what’s more even more problematic for the Government is that 30% of National Party voters oppose the plans. This follows an earlier poll in which one in six Nat voters said they were sufficiently pissed off over  the plans that if an election were held tomorrow they would not vote for the current Government.

Overall 29% of those polled support the idea of sacraficing our most protected land, compared to 53% against.

Submissions on the inane plans close next Wednesday. Have you made yours?
