What would this little 8 year old know about environmentalism that she hasn't been told by adults around her. How could she form her own opinions or think critically about these matters? She isn't even old enough to vote.
Yet the environmentalists say:
The young face of the Green Party election campaign is Aila, the
eight-year old girl who is asking you to make your Party Vote Green
this election. You can find out more about her by watching this TVNZ news story.
This says a lot more about the environmentalists' indoctrination tactics in schools than it does about Aila. The poor wee darling has our transport policy nutted out already:
I think we should go on our bikes because bikes are just the same as cars but they have no petrol.
I suspect she might change her mind after a trip to the supermarket on her trike. And Newton's laws (acceleration and speed) will be a revelation to this girl. She's silent on whether the family has a car, but the kitchen clearly has a gas stove. Isn't gas like petrol, or is that ok because it can be recycled on a beach? Who can say... We will need more in depth interviews of this little star before we can fully nail down the future of human transport, but it is a good start.
And at the end she says:
I vote for Greens!
I rest my case.
