Yesterday Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei gave a speech about child poverty. It was interspersed with animated clips. Here's an example:
(Animation: three children discuss the economic system “So what’s
happening with all our money?” “We’re giving it to the government and
they’re giving it to the rich people.” “And they’re spending it on stuff
they don’t need.”)
Children get their ideas from somewhere. Hard to believe this was just one of those overheard unscripted quirky conversations children have.
It's pretty appalling to imagine adults teaching and prompting these lines for the camera.
But the Greens have never been above using children to buy votes.
