IS THE RIGHT WING PARTY JUST A DREAM?
RWR AND MAINSTREAM POLITICS: A POLITICAL OPINION. Maybe it's time to push further the boundaries of the discussion. Something happened here in the past few months. "Who should RW-guys vote for" - one of my latest posts - has become quickly the most popular one in the NORTHERN WOLVES blog. What does it mean? It means that RW-guys and their supporters like this topic. I could say they would like to vote for a MAINSTREAM FAR-RIGHT PARTY - even if very small - because they are not happy with the NATIONAL's "cautious-Labour-style" policies. RW people (this is my feeling) are not happy as well with the 90s-style UNDERGROUND ACTIVISM of this movement. Probably it's time for RWR to become (or try to) a mainstream party. Yes, National is doing very well at the polls and could govern alone, but they need a political Right-Wing ally (or allies) to catch the votes of the electors unhappy with their Labour-style policies. It would be great for them to create a strong Right-bloc. So what's the point? The point is RWR cannot be just a group of UNDERGROUND ACTIVISTS and COMMUNITY WORKERS. They must try to go further. In Europe, Far-Right parties have members in Parliament: this is not a scandal, it's called Democracy. There is enough room in New Zealand for a Right-Wing party. (At the moment, I cannot see any political Right parties other than National really popular). How can this be done? I would say Politics are expensive. Setting up a new party is mostly a matter of money. The Right Wing needs a backer...I'd like to have a feedback about this matter. Cheers!
