Piss weak Minister Nick Smith Should resign over delays in clean air enforcement

Well it has happened – the National Party Environment minister, Nick Smith, has completely dropped the ball. He is piss weak. New Zealand’s polluted cities and towns had a deadline to meet the piss weak pollution targets, and instead of making them he has left them off the hook. The Dom Post has the story Polluted cities given time to clean up. Piss Weak!!

Resign you shitty minister. Nick Smith you are completely incompetent and have condemned many New Zealanders to an early grave.

From the article:

Labour’s environment spokesman, Charles Chauvel, said delaying the deadline would mean 635 avoidable deaths, 505 unnecessary hospital admissions and more than a million extra sick days.

The delay would strain the public health system.

“It also means a big taxpayer subsidy to those businesses – we will all pay for the avoidable public hospital treatments for respiratory illnesses that this decision will cause,” Chauvel said.

However, Smith rejected Chauvel’s criticism.

Mr Chauvel is of course completely correct.

Resign Nick Smith – you are piss weak, and have just betrayed New Zealand.



  1. […] If they weren’t a complete waste of space why couldn’t they stop Nick Smith condemning New Zealand towns and cities to ongoing pollution, with no end in sight? Read my post Piss weak Minister Nick Smith should resign. […]

  2. […] Why does New Zealand so spectacularly fail on one of humanities most basic needs? Why does the minister of pollution Nick Smith allow delays in fixing up the situation, so nothing will ever get done? Why does the National Party in one of its own policy statements […]

  4. […] It is time for the National Party not to be two-faced hypocrites when it comes to tightening the standards. If they can’t help New Zealanders not have shit air to breath then really it is time for Environment Minister Nick Smith to resign. […]

  5. […] “Their balance of economic and environmental skills reflected National’s Bluegreen approach of supporting growth and protecting the environment”, says Dr Nick Smith. […]

  6. […] Should that be another government minister called to resign? Or there is this one? […]

  7. […] echoes of the delay in introducing cleaner air standards it should now be perfectly clear that the Environment Minister Nick Smith doesn’t give a shit […]

  8. […] again I call on Dr Nick Smith, Minister on the Environment to resign. His government is not serious about improving air quality.He has completely failed. And in a New […]

  9. […] this goes to show that getting cleaner air is an uphill battle against the forces of stupidity like Nick Smith, Lawrence Yule and Barbara Arnott and it’s a bit hit and miss with the regional councils if […]

  10. […] then to help here are some posts across my blogs to help you decide. (National betray us again. Piss Weak Nick Smith should Resign.  Another Backwards Step. 7 bicycles per year. If Political Parties came on Freeview. Steven Joyce […]

  11. […] He should have been sacked earlier. He had to go for a bit of cronyism, helping his friend outside of his remit as a minister on ministerial notepaper. Yet one does wonder why he wasn’t sacked for condemning hundreds of New Zealanders to an early grave for his actions as Environment Minister by failing to act on air pollution and extending the deadline for compliance to our lax standards. Of course whilst not doing anything at all to improve the environment the National Party say that they are – The Blue Greens are a Waste of Space. […]
