    Greens Take Nanny State To A New Level

    MEDIA RELEASE

    Greens Take Nanny State To A New Level

    Family First NZ is labelling the Green’s ‘welcome package’ for newborns policy as wasteful and misdirected.

    “This policy is taking ‘nanny state’ to a new level but indicates just how much the Greens want to intervene in family life,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

    “It is a complete waste of taxpayer money to give nappies, bibs and blankets to millionaire families and other families who are able to cope with those needs already.”

    “It would make far greater sense to target those resources at young and low income families who are starting out as a family. Targeted assistance is far more appropriate. It is also disappointing that the Greens oppose income-splitting which would greatly help single income families,” says Mr McCoskrie.

    “This policy is simply a stepping stone to having a social worker allocated to every child from day one – another level of ‘nanny state’.”

    In Family First’s Value Your Vote resource, the Greens stated that Government, not parents, have primary responsibility for nurturing, raising and educating their children.

    ENDS

    Bob McCoskrie – National Director
