Questioning Colin

by Lord Sutch

Colin CraigRecently we’ve played host to the musings of some of New Zealand’s most prominent politicians. While this is all fine and dandy to have MPs pontificate about their thoughts, we also want to challenge them and make them front up for their beliefs and policies.

Colin Craig, the leader of the Conservative Party has been storming headlines, and creating a kerfuffle as he stands on the precipice of entering parliament. While John Key hasn’t invited him for a cuppa tea (yet) many pundits predict that Mr Craig will be propping up National next term. He has been on the receiving end of a lot of attention for some of his statements and The Ruminator wanted to get to the bottom of a few things with him.

We also want you, the amazing readers to have the chance to ask questions of Mr Craig. So please, feel free to comment below, tweet us, comment on our Facebook page, or email us your queries for Colin.

We know there is always the temptation to be a bit silly when it comes to this kind of thing —looking at you, Jarrod — but please try and keep questions respectful and PG13 in nature.

This will hopefully be the start of a series of long-form interviews with politicians and other prominent New Zealanders.

I take great personal umbrage at your suggestion that I might direct a “silly” question in Mr Craig’s direction.

For the record, I stand by the question I offered:( and if your accusation of silliness continues to remain on this page then you should expect to hear from my lawyer.

PS: if you are an excellent defamation lawyer willing to work pro bono then please get in touch with me via Twitter.

Given that many of your policies are based on a text which predates modern political movements such as feminism, abolition of slavery, and the declaration of human rights; to name a few. What do you think makes your policies relevant to 21st Century New Zealand?

If you are, as you appear to be, incapable of making a determination on the truth or falsehood of something as simple as the moon landing, why should people believe you are capable of making more complicated determinations, such as the ones you would be expected to make in parliament?

You have said that creationism should be taught in classrooms as an alternative to evolution. Are you talking about Christian creationism, Hindu creationism, Maori creationism or some other version?
