What did you expect from a Tory government?
That a right-wing National government would want to mine in national parks, reduce/restrict welfare benefits, raise the goods and services tax (GST), and introduce tax cuts for the wealthy should come as no surprise to anyone. Yet I'm sure that many people who voted for National in the last election, because it was "time for a change", are surprised – and perhaps even hurt and angry. They need to understand that changing a government is not exactly like changing the furniture in your living room.
