The general election in NZ has given National a significantly larger share
of the seats and votes than the opposition Labour Party.  One of the
distinguishing features of Labour is that it is the more anti-immgration of
the two major capitalist parties.

In fact, in recent years the most significant utterings of Labour
politicians have been a racist campaign against people with
"Chinese-sounding surnames".

Yet, chunks of the left, including most of the minuscule far left, favour
Labour.

An indication of the delightfulness of the NZ Labour Party:

First Labour government wanted 'Aryan' immigrants not Jewish refugees from
the Nazis:

More Labour anti-Chinese racism - and the left tags along behind them
still:
